Hello and welcome to the Go-For Fitness website!! My name is Kathy Scherer, owner of Go For Fitness. I am very excited to be here in South Glens Falls and realize my dream of owning my own fitness center. I have always been an athlete and a fitness enthusiast. I attended many classes here over the years when it was Gay Congdon’s Fitness Firm and I am proud to say that many of my favorite instructors still teach here!! Two years ago we celebrated 30 years of providing health and wellness to the SGF community.
I have a BBA in Marketing from Pace University and a Master’s Degree in Exercise Science and Health Promotion from California University of Pennsylvania. I have over 15 different certifications in the fitness industry, including AFAA Group Exercise, Spinning, Les Mills Body Pump, Power Pilates Level 1 Mat, YogaFit, and many more. I have been teaching in major health clubs in the NYC area for over 20 years. I am also a NASM Certified Master Personal Trainer. I have 10 years of health club management experience and feel very lucky to be able to work in an industry that is my life passion.
I am married to my husband Paul and I have a beautiful daughter Jessica.
In addition to group fitness, I love skiing, biking, competing in sprint triathalons, spending time with my family and rescuing senior age shelter dogs.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our site. We look forward to helping each and every one of you attain your health and fitness goals!
