  1. I’ve been a member of Riverdale Fitness for several rewarding years now.

    Located on the south side of Danforth Avenue, just west of Jones Avenue, Riverdale Fitness occupies a comfortable second-floor space that looks out onto the eclectic mix of humanity that calls itself Greektown. What’s really special, though, is the helpful staff, led by the incomparable Shelley Winters.

    (Ms. Winters, an accomplished martial arts practitioner, teaches kick-boxing classes Monday evenings – when her dollars & cents managerial duties are completed for the day).

    I became a member several years ago after my doctor suggested I trim the 216 pounds I then carried. I’m down to 184 today. Much of the credit belongs to the gentle-yet-firm assistance provided by the gym, its staff and even the Riverdale trainers who are available to those who feel more comfortable with a guiding hand.

    Riverdale Gym is well appointed with the array of equipment found in many gyms. What puts it over the top is the staff, the warmth and the easy access.
    So, if not before, I’ll see you at the Riverdale Gym Christmas party, an annual (free) event the staff throws for members. You meet a bunch of nice people there.

    All the best!
