Glover Memorial Community Center
501 Main Street * Fossil
Glover Memorial Community Center aka Glover Fitness Forever is a facility in downtown Fossil that rivals gym facilities in the big cities.
This gym started with a desire of the community and surrounding areas to improve health. Exercise classes and nutrition classes were started with the cooperation of Asher Clinic. These soon became so popular that a major television show found out about the grassroots effort and featured the project on national television. The local American Legion Post had decided to disband and offered a building to Wheeler County to use as a gym. Next a local rancher, who had connections to the fitness industry, offered to donate equipment and a real gym was born.
Today anyone can join for $20.00 per month and use all the available exercise equipment and videos. Emergency Service Personnel should contact the office for special rates. The facility is available every day and is still run by volunteers from the community and fees go for maintenance only. The mission of this facility is to improve health whether you are a young person or a senior citizen. Therefore, the name Glover Fitness Forever was created.
