A lot has changed at Doc Z's Fitness, a gym owned and operated by Chiropractic Physician Dr. Richard "Doc Z" Zimmerman.  Just three years ago, Doc Z's Fitness occupied one, two-story building on South Oak Street in DuQuoin.  Working out at Doc Z's was - well - personal and up close with your fellow gym members.  NO LONGER!  Doc Z's hasn't wasted a moment of time, growing the gym through several connected buildings with group fitness classes and free weights well distributed throughout the facility. Doc Z's in 2013 is a busy, bustling, popular gym that is fully dedicated to personal fitness, wellness, and - yes - FUN!  In 2014, Doc Z's will be completing phase 3 of the Zimmerman Building with more exciting changes in the future.  



The expanded gym has nearly 9,000 square feet of top of the line commercial grade equipment.  The space includes: 3,000 sq ft of free weights, two cardio rooms with cardio entertainment tv/radio, a private Nautilus circuit training room, a huge group fitness room, an indoor cycling studio and a private yoga studio featuring bamboo floors.

Doc Z's Fitness offers a multitude of well-attended, high-energy classes, including; indoor cycling (aka Spinning), Zumba, Bodypump, Dance and Tone, yoga, and others, all offered at convenient times and led by certified instructors.  The state-of-the-art equipment available at Doc Z's permits the development of safe, productive workout regimes personally designed for you by experienced trainers. Security keyed access allows 24/7/365 member access.

One walk through at Doc Z's Fitness will tell you that age doesn't matter, either.  Expect to see several generations working out side-by-side, helping one another, making new friends, and achieving personal fitness goals, all at the same time.  

The amount of work, time, and experience in making Doc Z's Fitness a premiere Southern Illinois gym is readily evident and makes one's personal fitness journey pleasant, rewarding, and - most importantly - ongoing.  It's the kind of gym you don't mind going to on a daily basis because it has become THE place where friends meet and sweat together.
