Why Green Door Fitness?
Because we strive to be energy independent and to get outdoors.
We are working on becoming a certified Green Business through the city of Denver, we recycle, reuse, and try to reduce our waste by using cloth towels and our own water bottles. We don’t have paper cups or paper towels.
Our motto is We workout hard at Green Door so you can play outdoors! We will have a calender of events posted at the gym and would love to get your ideas on the calender too!
To us physical fitness is the ability to carryout daily tasks with vigor and alertness, without undue fatigue and with ample energy to enjoy leisure time pursuits and to meet unforeseen emergencies. Put easier we want our workouts at Green Door Fitness to be challenging and harder than anything you have in your daily life. So when life happens you are ready! That creates a sense of ease and enjoyment when you are playing with your family, walking the dog, or when tragedy strikes and you need to run for help. We want you to be prepared for anything, which means being Green Door Fit!
