Review of Mountain Home, Arkansas

Looking for a fresh start
Star Rating - 11/6/2012
As a 21 year old single man with a personal training business and an extreme passion for the outdoors, do you think I would thrive in Mt Home? I heard about it from outdoor life magazine and would like to go somewhere to build my business and be surrounded with big trout and lots of hunting and good people.I have a fine dining serving, fishing guide background. I am from central Oregon which is thriving in the summer because of tourism, but not so much in the winter and have always wanted to see the true lifestyle of the southern states...

A 21 year old single male would definitely be in the minority group here in Mtn. Home. I have lived here 13 years, and love the town and the slow-paced life. Everyone is very friendly. We have a lot of retirees from the north because of our low property taxes. Nestled between two lakes provides a great summer-life. We have a small mountain-biking trail system, and a larger one 45 minutes away. My only hesitation in recommending you to the area is that fact that as a personal trainer, you probably won't have the same income you are used to in Oregon. We have 3 gyms, which is probably more that a town our size should. One of the gyms was just purchased by another, so now you can have joint membership. If you're looking for individual clients, advertising here is mostly word-of-mouth, and you would be the new kid in town.
