"I have been working out for years and in many gyms. The Body Shop is one of the best I’ve ever worked out in. It has exactly what I need to stay in shape. The atmosphere is perfect. Matt and the staff are always helpful with anything I need. They always take the time to say hi and ask how things are going. The 24 hour access is very nice. The tanning bed helps me relax after a hard workout. Plenty of machines and I have never had to wait for one. All the windows make it feel like you're not in a dungeon. I look forward to going there every day to work out. I strongly suggest giving it a shot. Tell them Rick sent ya"

'I would like to give my personal testimonial. I started my weight-loss journey at 187 pounds. I saw a picture of me and knew it was time to change. I started exercising and eating better. Once I joined The Body Shop, I not only found a way to get healthy, I found a new family. I joined the evening classes and talked with Matt about eating healthy. I met my goals, changed my life and will never look back."

On vacation, there are gyms you are STUCK using and there are gyms you MUST use because they are just that good. It's awesome that in the lake country of Wisconsin you can have all the weekend fun on the lake and not entirely give up on your workout goals.
The Body Shop is an authentic gym that is totally down to earth and fun to work out at... as hardcore you want to be or if you are more into finesse it has every comfort. The owner Matt is totally committed to making this the best gym- not just making it the best small town gym. Join and get huge!

I have been visiting Shell Lake in the summer for years and always make it a point to get in a quick workout while there. The Body Shop has every piece of equipment I need, regardless of which fitness goal I am working toward at the time and there is nothing better than opening the doors and working out in the sun on a beautiful day!
This place is great. Machines and tons of free weights, what more do you need? It was a pleasant surprise finding this gem with so much equipment. Perfect for my diverse workouts.
As a former fitness center owner, I know how difficult it is to create a workout environment and atmosphere that is not only friendly and inviting, but which also provides equipment and resources to help meet the diverse fitness goals of a wide variety of people. Whether you want to flip tractor tires, move weights, or get in a cardio blast, The Body Shop has what you need, including a 'fridge with protein shakes when you're done. Matt has done an amazing job of creating a fitness oasis, and it truly is my favorite gym anywhere on planet earth.
