Our Story

In addition to having the best exercise equipment and best fitness classes, we/Mike wanted to create a workout facility that is truly unique to Maine where someone feels that they are getting their workout in the middle of the Maine woods. Thus, we found ten acres of wooded land right in Scarborough and built Foley's Fitness Center on two acres right in the middle of this forest. We decided to put in high ceilings rising to over 30 feet with plenty of windows allowing the natural light to come in while seeing the beautiful trees. Come check it out and see what you think of this Maine atmosphere.
