Whether to rehab from an injury, improve your posture, or to just focus on being strong & healthy, our studio and staff will provide a positive experience with positive results. We are also an Official SPINNING® Facility, offering classes on the elite NXT Spinners!

 

COMMUNITY:

In addition to several small donations throughout the year, we devote 1 week in December to benefit a local charity. Our staff donates their time, and clients donate towards the classes. 100% of the donations stay local to the Bath-Brunswick area to help those in need. Thank you to our staff & clients-
in 2007 we raised $1200 for the Salvation Army, exceeding our donation in 2005, and 2006!!

2008 we raised $525 for the Salvation Army, and $560 for the LaRomana, Dominican Republic Mission Trip, for $1085 total!!!! Thank you to all who helped with both of these wonderful charities!

She has completed the Dempsey Challenge 50 mile bike ride in 2009 and 2010. Her boundless energy and contagious smile is sure to keep you motivated!

 

 

 

Sheryl Woodworth: Sheryl has been active in cycling for many years, and participates yearly in a 500 mile ride to raise money and awareness for Habitat for Humanity. She became very active in triathlons after successful treatment for late stage cancer convinced her to get off the couch and on the road! She has participated at all levels, completing many sprint and Olympic distances as well as four half Ironman distances. She has come within 11 miles of completing an Ironman distance triathlon!

 

Sheryl's love of cycling is rooted in the enjoyment of the outdoors and tremendous desire to overcome obstacles in achieving goals, moving from, "I could never do that," to "I did it!!", including a loss of over 30 lbs in the past year.  

 

Having moved to Maine within the past two years, Sheryl looks forward to combining her love of cycling with her desire to encourage and motivate others by teaching Spinning classes here at Body Symmetry! 

 

 

 

 

We are a GREEN facility! We recycle, use a compost bin, use "green" cleaning products as much as possible, support products Made in the USA, and Buy Local. We made great strides in 2010 as we discontinued our retail clothing (lululemon) because it is made in China. We have expanded our retail line in 2011 to carrying only products made in USA!
