About Eights Gym
Small Town + Family Owned
Eights Gym + Fitness is located in Alburtis, Pennsylvania. Alburtis is the epitome of a hardworking small town; we don't even have a single traffic light. Most members know most members, or will eventually, and everyone is welcoming and helpful. We have fostered a family atmosphere that encourages and builds up everyone's fitness (and life) goals.
Eights is owned by Alburtis residents with a young family, so we care deeply about the community and providing a place of business that everyone can be proud of. Here at Eights you can reach out to the owners directly with any questions, issues, or suggestions you have and receive a response typically that same day. We value our member's satisfaction above all else.
Eights Gym + Fitness is a 24-hour unstaffed facility. Barring unforeseen acts of nature (or global pandemics!), Eights is always available to you anytime you want! All members receive an RFID key fob that they use to access the gym 24-7-365.
Upstairs, Eights has an approximately 600 square foot cardio room with huge windows providing a pleasant view of Main St. and some historic buildings. You can count the trains as they pass by while you get your work in. The cardio room currently features:
- 1 StairMaster stepmill
- 3 Precor 954i treadmills (new belts/decks installed January 2021!)
- 2 Precor 842i recumbent bikes
- 3 Life Fitness ellipticals with touchscreens
- 2 Schwinn ICPro 20 spin bikes
- 1 Concept 2 Rower
As we grow we certainly aim to continually rotate and update the cardio equipment to the latest and greatest.
Downstairs we have over 1000 square feet dedicate to weight training. To be able to use this space per the building code we had to insulate, drywall, and install a new HVAC system. That system includes constant ventilation and indoor/outdoor air-exchange, so it's always comfortable. The weight room currently features:
