New Year, New You!
Meet our part-time employees: Cindy Funez, Jocelyn Sanchez, Alejandro Arenas, Matthew Downey and Paige Downey. Our three young employees are all bi-lingual and can help with translations when needed. All employees are avid fitness enthusiasts and can help with basic work-outs and lifting suggestions.
- Cindy is always there with a smile and more than willing to help those who ask. She is a Jordan Matthews 2021 graduate currently taking classes at CCCC.
- Jocelyn is a senior at Jordan Matthews where she excelled in tennis and a young entrepreneur selling t-shirts on the weekends.
- Alejandro is a 2021 Jordan Matthews graduate currently taking college courses. He went through his own weight loss transformation and can offer first-hand advice.
- Matthew is the son of the owners and helps out with management duties and provides personal training. As a 4 year Marine, 4 yr graduate of UNCW in communications and physique competitor, he is well disciplined and knowledgeable in personal fitness.
- Paige is Matthew’s wife and they live in Siler City with their 2 boys, Lincoln and Frasier. You may see them some mornings with big smiles to greet you. As a young mother, Paige knows the struggles to schedule time for herself and stay in shape.
- Freya is our new gym mascot. She is mostly Pitbull, but American mutt is probably a better description. She occasionally makes an appearance.
Some of our older part-time employees moved on to different careers. Tyler Haiges is going through Army Ranger training and Carlos Valencia just finished up Army boot camp. Angie Vernon was our gym manager, but she got an offer for a full-time career with benefits with State Farm in June of 2022.. You may still see her early mornings if you get there by 6 am 🙂
- Owner Spotlight
Meet your owners, Melanie and John Downey, of Silk Hope/Siler City.
Moving here in 2017 from Apex where they resided between 2001 to 2017. Both have been a part of many gym and fitness centers while living in Indianapolis, Maryland (DC area), and originally from PA.
John traveled for his current employer, Cisco Systems, for over 20 yrs and made it a point to workout in as many places as possible. Both have been in the fitness industry as competitors, judges, trainers, and enthusiasts for over 30 yrs.
The opportunity presented itself to purchase Triangle Fitness in Siler City earlier this year and after months of due diligence they took ownership on May 20, 2021.
Being involved in the fitness industry and a part of Triangle Fitness for the last 4 years gave them the perspective of the business and what members liked, would like to see, and what changes we could implement to make it better; hours, space, equipment, supplements, trainers, etc.
Triangle Fitness is the area’s “best” premier fitness gym, because we’re the only gym 🙂 Offering many fitness classes each week, personal training, cardio equipment, machine assisted weights, free weights, supplements, tanning, and protein shakes/smoothies all in a convenient location for a low price each month.

An indoor stationary cycling class that combines basic cycling movements with motivational coaching, breathing awareness, and heart rate training. This non-impact, individually paced, cardio class will definitely move you! Spinning classes provide an intense cardio workout while still catering to participants of all fitness levels. Core work is incorporated in the form of planks and other options. Our instructor will lead you through a challenging series of courses to maximize your caloric burn. The best part is that you control your own resistance and speed allowing you to continuously progress forward from your current fitness level. (45 minutes)
Step & Cardio
Done to upbeat music, step aerobics is a form of aerobic power distinguished from other types of aerobic exercise by its use of an elevated platform (the step). The height can be tailored to individual needs by inserting risers under the step. Step aerobics helps burn calories and fat. It also helps to reduce stress, promote restful sleep, strengthen muscles and gives the body a more streamlined appearance. The number of calories burned depends on the speed of movements, step height, and length of exercise. Step aerobics is suitable for all ages. (60 Minutes)
Silver Sneakers Class focuses on strengthening muscles and increasing range of motion for daily life activities. Participants will use hand-held weights (weights based on what you can hold), elastic bands with handles and a Silver Sneakers ball. Although tailored toward senior citizens, all ages are welcome to participate.
Every Saturday 10:30 am to 11. Six or more stations, 30 secs per station, 3 rounds. Quick break, three more rounds and done. 18 minutes of work that translates to over an hour of most people’s typical workouts. Great for aerobic capacity, cardio/heart health along with functional strength.
Every Friday 9 am to 9:45. Taught by Amy Burke. Great for flexibility, stress management and mental health.
We are pleased to offer five tanning beds – Two high intensity, two medium intensity, and one low intensity. You do not have to be a member of Triangle Fitness to purchase tanning packages. Call for details on offered packages.
