UNDER CONSTRUCTION: An update on our remodel and expansion

Construction. Expansion. Remodel.

Three words that bring in so many different emotions all at the same time!! If you have ever taken on a project of any size I’m sure you can relate. It’s not uncommon to hit the full spectrum of emotions all in the same day. Even amongst all the noise we couldn’t be more confident in our mission and dedicated to our purpose.

Why are we expanding? Our mission is to move people toward whole health. We do that through community, fitness, and nutrition. Over the last couple of years we have seen our community grow as a result of the amazing heart and dedication of our team and the amazing people who call Get Fit home. We want to honor our team and our members by making our facility match the heart of our people. This project will help us continue to meet the needs of our members and help us affect greater change in our community.

What is actually happening? Our entire space is getting a makeover. Some of the highlights include: A REAL SIGN!! HAHA! (hard to believe the banner has been up for a few years), more training floor space, new floors, completely remodeled restrooms/showers, fans, front desk/reception area, a large childcare with its own restroom ☺, a personal training area, new equipment, consultation room, and an office.

What is the timeline? We hope to have everything complete by mid-December. Being this is a new construction/remodel there is always potential to hit some bumps in the road but we are praying for the best!

How is construction going to affect normal studio operations? So far the construction has been in the new space and some of you have not even noticed. Which is great! This week construction started on the men’s bathroom/showers. Once the men’s is complete construction will start on the women’s. The men will have access to the porta potty but will not have shower facilities until both are complete. This should be complete in 6 weeks. The next phase will be tearing down the wall into the new space and demoing existing structures inside the studio. This will take place over a Friday-Sun day and we will offer workout outdoor alternatives in place of regular scheduled classes. Childcare will not be affected as it will move from the old space to the new space over the 3 day weekend. The final phase will be over another 3 day weekend in which all the training floor will be installed and equipment will be set up in its new configurations. We will do our best to keep everyone updated with reminders in the studio, email, and social media.

This project has been about a year in the making. It’s really hard to believe its actually happening. This has been such a journey; we have explored many different options, even walking down some paths only to start back at square one again because it didn’t feel right. Get Fit has never been about business and it never will be. It’s about people and making a real difference in the community we live in. Most of us never imagined we would be doing this, yet here we are. If we didn’t feel lead to take this step of faith we wouldn’t be here. We are far from perfect but we always try and do what’s right by our team and our clients. Get Fit is as much yours as it is ours. Thank you for your support and loyalty. We are committed to pursuing excellence in all that we do. We are truly honored to be a part of at Get Fit and our team couldn’t be more thankful to be serving you and our local community!

Here is a sneak peak at our new reception desk! Our Front Desk Team is pretty excited!!!!
