Stay Healthy

Fitness Center

Welcome to the Basement.

Fitness starts with a solid foundation.

Located on the ground floor of Baptist Health Rehabilitation Institute (BHRI) on the campus of Baptist Health Medical Center-Little Rock.

The majority of people begin an exercise program because their clothes no longer fit or their physician suggests they do so. At the Baptist Health Fitness Center we encourage our employees to participate in physical activity no matter your motivation. We believe that living a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and exercise is a means to preserving your quality of life and preventing illness. We strive to provide a safe and affordable place for our employees to work out with modern weight machines and equipment such as treadmills and stair climbers and a variety of aerobics classes.

If you are a Baptist Health employee or an employee of one of our corporate affiliates and would like more information about the Baptist Health Fitness Center or to make an appointment for your Exercise Prescription, call (501) 202-7628. During your orientation, we'll explain the equipment and provide a workout program tailored to your needs.
