Fitness for $10 Adds New Equipment

Best Health and Wellness Award Goes to Fitness for $10

In the recent Pahrump Valley Chamber of Commerce Awards Program, the company voted the Best in the Health and Wellness category was Fitness for $10 located at 2271 E. Commercial Dr. Pahrump, NV 89048.

This building was formerly the local grocery store called PJ’s Market. When Smiths came into town, PJ’s closed, and the building was leased out to Tumbleweed Gym which lasted about two years. The owner of the building inherited all of the workout equipment, so decided to open First Move Fitness. After 16 years of serving the community, he sold the business to a Nevada company called Fitness for $10, which it has remained for five years. Fitness for $10 has a total of nine locations in Nevada, four in Arizona, and one in Utah.

Lisa Duncan, General Manager

Lisa, GM of the Pahrump location, worked for First Move Fitness for four years and has been with Fitness for $10 since it started. Not only is she currently in charge of operations, but she teaches classes as well.

She loves her job. When asked what she likes best about it, Lisa says she enjoys the interaction with the people. She’s been involved with other organizations as well including 4-H and coaching local soccer, and she delights in being an active member of the community. She moved here 22 years ago from San Francisco and hasn’t looked back since.

When asked what brought them here, she related that her husband worked for a company at the time that allowed them to live anywhere as long as it was in the west. They stayed in Pahrump once while visiting Death Valley and came back to check it out. Soon they decided this was the place they wanted to raise their kids.
