An open Christmas card to all of our Epic family: 12/22/2014

It has been such a pleasure to work with, and get to know, each of you. Since we opened in 2012, our mission has always been to offer a service that allows you to reach a healthy goal and to help improve your quality of life. Beyond that, we have strived to not be mere business people in the community but, more so, people you trust. To us you are not just members, you’re friends. In a small community and with a small business, we feel blessed that we can share with you and let you into our lives just as so many of you have done to us. It’s easy to forget, throughout the year, to express ourselves and to only recall the important things we so often should say buy only share once or twice at various holidays. Just know that, to us, we are grateful for you at all times and we hope that the blessing you are to us comes back to you 100 times over.

Thank you for being a part of our lives and have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.


Kenny and Dianne

Please note that our Sunday hours have changed. We are now open from 11:30am until 2 pm. Someone will be available to help with you training and to work with you, if needed.

PADS assessment and training - NEW!


PADS is an Epic Fitness concept designed to assess balancing movement correlations as well as mobility and stability throughout the body. From athletes interested in peak performance, persons in occupations that require physical effort, to older adults interested in enhanced functional movement for daily living, Epic’s PADS approach will help you achieve your objective.

This assessment, and subsequent training, provides a measure of the ability of a person to function independently and safely in the home environment or through enhanced ability on the sporting stage.

If you want to improve sports performance or simply lead a better quality of life, PADS can help prepare you for optimal movement and an improved existance. Call today!

BIG News!

07/14/2014: We have relocated to 104 S. Market St in Shreve (directly across the street from the gas station). We are about 75% finished with our renovations and are still assembling some equipment so please bear with us. Our new site will allow us to offer more and serve you better as we strive to bring you the best fitness center in the area.

Epic Resolution Results

Before we say congratulations to our top placers in the Epic New Year’s Resolution contest, we want to applaud everyone who participated. Beginning a fitness program is never an easy task. Attach to that expectations from traditions such as resolutions you make for yourself or family and work commitments, and the undertaking seems even larger. Every person had their own challenges but made time to try and reach their goal. It’s never easy but the reward is always worth the sweat. That being said almost everyone burned an additional 13,000 calories during the 90 span. Even if you didn’t “place” you still won because you had the guts to try. Like Arnold said, “Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.”

Now, the top three placers:

1)      Conner Fought: Conner burned 27,484 calories and lost 11% body fat

2)      Shana Esselburn: She burned 31,350 calories and, although she gained 3 pounds, she lost inches.

3)      Katie Bachman: Katie burned 21,477.6 calories and lost 7% body fat.

Special Mention:

4)      Libya Visocky: Libya burned 25,364.6 calories. Talk about someone who can walk/jog all day! Several times she burned over 1,000 calories through marathons on the treadmill.

5)      Bobbie Bash: Bobby burned 18,068.25 calories and lost 4 pounds and 1% body fat. Great job!

Each is proof that you CAN reach your goal through persistence. Like we always say, “Don’t be average, be EPIC!” To us, all of you are. Congratulations.

Exercise vs. Training? Is there a difference?

While a majority of places want to focus on giving you a place to exercise, Epic takes the time to help you train. There is a BIG difference. Exercise is physical activity for its own sake, a workout done for the effect it produces today, during the workout or right after you're through. Training is physical activity done with a longer-term goal in mind in which the fundamental workouts are specifically designed to bring about the goal.

Training is about the process you undertake to generate a specific result later, maybe much later. Training may even involve a light day that you perceive to be a waste of time if you only consider today. Goals can range from anything that is sport specific to simply having the ability to navigate stairs without assistance or pain. At Epic Fitness & Rehab we don’t just take the time to show you how to do an exercise, we work to tie it into a specific goal that allows you to see incremental progress. 

Many fads/trends saturate today’s fitness market making it difficult for the beginner, and often times the advanced, to know exactly what is best for them. CrossFit, for example, is an example of these types of trends. CrossFit is basically a blanket exposure to an assortment of different movements at different intensities. Most of these movements are done for time (as many reps as possible) for a fixed time period or with a predetermined number of reps done as fast as possible. Therefore it is more exercise than training, since it is random and training, as I said before, necessitates that we plan what we are going to do in order to achieve a specific purpose.

Remember, for you to be successful in your fitness/health quest you must have a specific goal. If a program of physical activity is not designed to get you stronger, faster or better conditioned it is just exercise. Epic wants you to achieve results and that is why training is our specialty. If you’re not achieving a desired outcome by doing a program that you set up for yourself or read in a magazine then ask yourself, am I really doing what I need to do to reach my goal and can it be improved? Not sure? Ask us, we’ll help.
