Who We Are
Healthy Habits is a personal fitness training service which has been serving the Memphis community since 1990. In 1993, Healthy Habits opened Memphis' first commercial training studio on Brookhaven Circle, where we operated for 20 years with 5-6 trainers. In 2004, Healthy Habits was purchased by Michael Ross-Spang Inc., dba Elite Personal Fitness. We received the proverbial "offer we couldn't refuse" in 2013, and in early 2014 the building was sold. The business continues to operate with one trainer who works out of 2 different facilities, or client homes.
Who I Am
Mike Ross-Spang is an American College of Sports medicine certified Health Fitness Specialist who has 20 years of fitness experience, 16 of them as a personal trainer. He moved to Memphis in 1978 to attend graduate school in Recreation at the University of Memphis. After working in various corporate fitness and recreation settings, he started his own company on April Fool's Day 1998. He has helped people in the Memphis area get fit ever since. Currently, Mike trains at Fitness First and Fundamental Fitness, as well as making in-home visits.
What I Think
Mike believes that a basic level of fitness is very important for health and quality of life. Fitness should be fun, functional, and fundamental to your lifestyle, but it doesn't need to be the most important thing in life. It has to fit in with everything else. His passion is to help you fit fitness into your busy life. For that reason, packages of training sessions are sold that provide flexibility to suit everyone. You can have a set schedule if that works best for you, or you can schedule as you go.
