426 Fitness takes advantage of size to offer many workouts

Preparing to do an upcoming “What’s Your Workout” feature for Thrive on indoor rowing, last week I visited the giant gym known as 426 Fitness in Warren.

I got to meet owner Mark Lombardi, and trainers Paul Sousa and Jill Lancaster at the sprawling 250,000-square-foot facility located in the old Parker Mills building.

Like most gyms, there’s lots of workout equipment and classes, but not only that, 426 Fitness offers a huge indoor driving range for golfers and a free Thursday night Zumba class to benefit the Warren Animal Shelter.

The facility’s also open to members of the Bristol-Warren High School wrestling team, and for its members, childcare is provided. It’s the kind of facility that I wish was in every community to promote health and wellness to all.
