About Living Well
The Living Well Fitness Center is the only full service neighborhood fitness center for the community's under-served population. The Lord placed a burden upon Dr. Addis Moore, pastor of Mt. Zion Baptist Church, to serve this community. In Acts 16:9-10, when Paul saw the vision in the night to come to Macedonia, those with Paul knew that God was calling them all to go to Macedonia. Likewise, the vision came through Dr. Addis Moore and we have felt the call of God to address the health needs of our community.
God has given us a burden for the health condition of our community. We are concerned about the staggering statistics reported on obesity, hypertension, diabetes, joint replacements, heart disease, and other illnesses related to unhealthy living. Because of this deep concern, God has given us a vision to provide an opportunity for those who do not normally have access to a fitness center because of many barriers such as cost, location, and intimidation.
This fitness center was birthed through Mt. Zion Baptist Church to serve the community on February 26, 2007. Since its birth, thousands of pounds have been lost, medications have been reduced or eliminated by physicians, and energy levels have increased. People who have been diagnosed with illnesses that were said to be incurable have been healed because of physical activity, people’s quality of life has improved, and many have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as savior.
Our intent is to provide a Christian environment, convenience, and low rates to meet the needs of every individual. We are committed to fighting those deadly diseases that can be controlled with healthy living. We are committed to eliminating all barriers to physical fitness. We are committed to reversing the alarming health statistics.
