Founded in 1873, Alma is small but mighty (not to mention, beautiful), boasting an estimated population of 275 according to the town's informational website, with an estimated 1,000 residents in nearby subdivisions.

"Life above it all" in Alma consists of spending time around town, enjoying and taking advantage of all its local offerings. From visiting Alma's restaurants/bars to taking trips to the local grocery store or exploring different shops in town - the residents and surrounding neighbors of Alma get together multiple times a year to celebrate the joy of living in this small mountain community.

These days, however, Alma and its residents have something new to celebrate.

About North America's Highest Gym

Like other traditional gyms/fitness facilities, Alma's Gym in Alma, CO provides its gym-goers with free weights and cardio machines, and also offers personal training sessions.

Unlike other traditional gyms/fitness facilities, because Alma's Gym stands as high in elevation as it does, the gym houses its very own oxygen bar.

"At over 10,000 ft elevation, Alma can be rough for some people. Supplemental oxygen can temporarily help relieve symptoms of altitude sickness, such as migraines and fatigue... great before or after your workout.", the gym's website reads. 

I don't know about you, but I'm tempted to take my workouts to new heights. For more information about the highest gym in North America, visit the gym's website here.
