Underground Fitness

A low-key fitness center with machines, free weights, and some cross-fit style equipment and a gymnasium with Open Gym times including adult sports.

Notice: The Old Gregg School Community & Recreation Center, including the Underground Fitness center, will be closed for at least the next two weeks. Gregg Township will continue to monitor the situation surrounding the coronavirus and will update the closure as needed.

Township Update: Old Gregg School Community & Recreation Center

As Gregg Township navigates these unprecedented times surrounding the coronavirus, we will be taking steps to ensure that we are upholding our responsibility for the safety and wellness of our community. We have been carefully observing the information and mandates being established at the State and Local levels, as well as communicating with the local and county Emergency Management Association.

Out of an abundance of precaution, in consideration of the safety of our community, the Old Gregg School Community & Recreation Center will be closed for the next two weeks to all non-tenant use beginning Monday, March 16, 2020 until at least Saturday March 28, 2020. During which time, Gregg Township will monitor the ongoing situation and determine whether the closure will be expanded.

The Gregg Township office will still be available via electronic communication, either through email or phone, as well as through in-person appointments if necessary. Please consider the well-being of the township employees, should you need an in-person appointment.

In an effort to continue to support our community as needs arise, and in communication with local resources concerning access to food for our community, there may be specified dates and times when there will be food distribution available either on the front exterior sidewalk or in the main lobby of the community center. Such dates and times will be posted on the Gregg Township website (www.greggtownship.org) and on the Gregg Township page.

We thank you for your understanding and patience as we continue to adjust to the changes.

Please contact the Gregg Township office with any questions or concerns:

Gregg Township, Centre County

The Old Gregg School is back to operating on a normal schedule today, Wednesday, January 10.

Gregg Township, Centre County

All activities and events at the Old Gregg School are cancelled for today, Tuesday, January 9, due to plumbing issues. Please share this and pass the word. We will be in touch when the building is operational.


I had the joy of connecting with friends this morning to lunge, stretch, pushup, row etc.
We had a good time.
I left happier than I arrived.
THIS is the message I want my sisters to hear.

Exercise evokes a positive outcome on mood and mental clarity.

I believe this bears repeating: there is no "magic" exercise (well I take that back - probably the Olympic lifts are pretty damned magical .....which I don't execute very well).

And....let go of these words: fat, flawed, imperfect.

Rather, I would bet, you're simply under-strong.

If you do not enjoy being under-strong, align your life so that you accomplish things daily which help you move closer to strength and stability.

The methods I choose and those you choose to bring ourselves closer to strength and stability may differ. Mine is not RIGHT and yours is not WRONG.

Yes - there are more effective means of using 20 minutes - but I have observed far too many people stalled in a place of doing absolutely nothing for fear of doing something wrong.
Go ham.
You'll figure it out.

Plug in a DVD and follow it.
Subscribe to a fitness channel.
Routinely attend a pilates or yoga class.
Pick up a heavy weight and put it back down. Repeat this.
Shadow box.
Hire a personal trainer or coach (this isn't a life-time commitment - hire one and don't dig her/him - - move on)

It really is about discipline and a shift in perspective.
Daily - - choose to inch yourself closer to the wild, strong, flexible, movable creature most of us (sans our neighbors born with physiological differences which redefine their ranges of movement and ability) are born to be. I have no idea if this will be fun - - but living in a state of dis-ease and dis-satisfaction and weakness ain't that fun either.

Stop imagining there is a perfect easy way that you haven't discovered. "Perfect" is myth....and "easy" really is the essence of gaining strength. The human body LITERALLY strives - from the cellular level - to BE alive. It regenerates itself over and over and over again - even though we ignore, neglect, abuse, and hate on it. Help it along - show it just a little love - - - and it will reward you 10 fold.


OGS Fitness Center Application


[01/08/18]   PSA
The rope in the gym was used inappropriately this weekend ....and to boot whoever did so left a mess of torn up foam.
1. The rope is on loan by an individual for community use...its not *yours*
2. The Underground is nearly sacred space... and I value it highly. It is imperative that it be treated with value and respect
3. Young and old alike are welcome to use it...but to be careless makes those of us who clean it, seriously train in it, and loan gear to it...more than a bit frustrated.

We'll be taking a look at the surveillance to determine who has been down here since Saturday at 10am.
Please. Be respectful. Use sound judgement. Clean up when you make a mess. It's called living in community. Thanks so much.

"Once you’ve made (the) commitment it becomes surprisingly obvious that you should have done it a long time ago. The apprehension you felt at making such a big decision suddenly becomes insignificant and your goal becomes clear and lucid. Once you’ve made both commitments it becomes surprisingly obvious that you should have done it a long time ago. The apprehension you felt at making such a big decision suddenly becomes insignificant and your goal becomes clear and lucid. Make the choice and everything starts to fall into place

Uplifted Life

We have some awesome patrons at the Underground Fitness Center at OGS.
Here's some worthwhile information about the importance of grounding.
Never heard of it?
Here's a brief introduction.

The secret to health may be right beneath your feet. Most of us know that chronic inflammation causes illness. Did you know that grounding may have a powerful effect on the body's inflammation response?

This looks like an interesting documentary

Check out Uplifted Life for more life-transforming content! 💙


Training. Check.
Real food. Sure.
Sleep. Um....

Here's a great way to support your training - - remove this from your life.

Come learn more about the importance of gut health!

“There is growing evidence for a role of the gut microbiome in mental health and one of the major factors that influences the gut microbiome is diet,” Evans explained to PsyPost. “The bottom line is that diet matters for mental health, consistent with previous work we have been doing for several years.”

📌📆Save the date to come to our FREE interactive seminar June 17th here at the studio to learn more about gut health and your immune system. Barb Cole CRNP will be sharing her research on the microbiome AND there will be sampling of Mount Nitanee Kombucha with Joan Elizabeth Karp as well as Kombucha available for purchase that day!

Inventing new ways to use gym equipment and creating a portal to another world! This is the all new artistic gym rat trend, community art workout routines.

A New Day Personal Fitness and Lifestyle Philosophies

I get it.
I understand.
I have been THERE.

Taking the first step towards increasing vitality seems impossible. So many thoughts. So many doubts. So many reasons not to.

Daunting--to say the least.

Shake that all away. Do this for YOU. For your present and your future. That is all that matters.

Let that sink in.

The present and the future are all that matter.

Not the crappy food you ate last week. Not the awkward kid you were in gym class in high school. Not the weight you gained when you started a new job/went back to school/ had babies.


The future.

None of the rest matters.

Don't be afraid. You can do this! Join us at The Underground at Old Gregg School. Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, at 830 am. It's a fun and supportive environment. No pressure, no competition, no shaming. Just women in a friendly environment making their bodies work. Toning. Strengthening. Supporting each other.

Push the doubts aside. YOU are worth this. The dishes and laundry will wait.

Group training opportunity with A New Day Personal Fitness Training.

The champion is in there.

Doesn't have to be an Olympic athlete. Or a marathon runner. Or a body builder.

Maybe your champion is the real you. The vital, energetic, confident champion who invests in self care.

Come join us and discover your inner champion.

Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings at Old Gregg School in the Underground. 8:30 am.

You won't be sorry.

Suspension trainers (TRX).
Pull up bars.
Bench and bar and plates.
Movable rack.
Assortment of free weights in increments all the way through 45#.
Punching bag.
Dip station.
Battling rope.
This out of the way, quirky-hole-in-the-wall gym has everything you need so you can get yourself into the best shape of your life.
Great place to go work on yourself with yourself without the pressure to be seen.

We are a community gym. Join us. You matter.

This is a tremendous little gym. Not a place to be seen. Rather a place to do your work and then get out to get on with the rest of your life. Entirely possible to get into the BEST shape of your life here with the tools available. Interesting fact, most all of the free weights are on indefinite loan to The Underground by two of the fitness coaches who regularly train in this space. We hope you’ll come join us. Memberships are available through Gregg Township for an incredible fee of $50.00 for the year. Once you take care of membership, USE and value the space. Bring a friend and train here together. Take pride in it. Rack your gear. Tidy it up. Keep an eye out for it. We’re fortunate to have it to share. Come join us. You matter.
