Tammy Wiles started Perfect Body Fitness Center in a small storefront in 1990, offering aerobic classes for ladies only. After the second year in business Perfect Body decided to go co-ed and incorporated state of the art fitness equipment. The center has rapidly grown to become the most successful full service fitness facility in the Danville area.
They now offer Nautilus, Hammer Strength machines, Body Masters and Cybex equipment, and tons of free weights. 40 stations of cardio equipment (Stairmaster, Nautilus, Schwinn) - treadmills, elliptical, step mills, rowers, bikes and plan to add more equipment in the near future.
Since the completion of their original building at their current location at Kings Plaza Shopping Center, they have made three additional expansions, a large cardio area and a 6,000 square foot Aerobic Studio offering step classes, kickboxing, core, and spin classes.
Now Perfect Body Fitness Center of Danville, Virginia has a beautiful multi-purpose court used for basketball, volleyball, indoor soccer, roller skating, plus an indoor rubber walking track, separate racquetball court, and 2 more bathroom facilities.
