Come and experience WholyFit as it was meant to be: in community with other believers of all ages and skill levels.

Mentor-trainers will be there to give you one-one-one attention and assistance!

Don’t worry about being “good enough” to come to Gold. The Bible tells us in 2nd Corinthians 3:5-6, “Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim that anything comes from us, but our competence comes from God. And He has qualified us as ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
