Hidden Gems: Meet Renee Schuckman of Fit In Boonsboro

Today we’d like to introduce you to Renee Schuckman.

Hi Renee, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
Fit In Boonsboro is a small boutique-style gym, nestled in the small town of Boonsboro, MD. Author, Nora Roberts and her husband Bruce Wilder restored the old firehouse building in Boonsboro. The building was to be a community fitness center. It may sound cliche but Fit In Boonsboro is so much more than a gym.

The members and staff are like family. People come not only to build their health journey, but also to build relationships, and allow the tourist that comes stay at the Inn Boonsboro a place to relax and workout. In October 2011, the gym opened to the public. Fit has all that a large gym offers just not the stigma. We are a community of people who support each other in fitness and in life. Fit has a beautiful locker area including sauna and steam rooms.

State-of-the-art cardio machines, weight, and functional training equipment, the best instructors in the area, plus Fit offers workshops, massage therapy, painting classes, CPR classes, hikes, and brown bag lunch socials. All this with the small-town appeal that makes Boonsboro so great!

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
No road is ever smooth, however, it’s how you take the turns that make the difference. We are a small gym, in a small town so finding people and getting pumped up about their health is not always easy. The best method we have used over the last 10 years is to keep changing and trying new exciting ways to improve.

During Covid-19 like so many other fitness facilities were forced to close. We jumped into virtual/live options from the very 1st day of closing and still continue to offer the virtual option to our members. Staying connected and building relationships is a huge part of our success longevity. I look forward to another year!
