Health club to open in
Northpoint Business Park
Huntington will soon have a new facility for anyone enjoying a good
workout or a good tan.
Ground was broken last week for the Huntington Health Club, a
9,756-square-foot facility to be constructed at 2806 Theater Ave., in
the Northpoint Business Park. The health club should open around July 1,
and starting April 15 residents can visit HuntingtonHealthClub.com for
an online tour and for progress of the construction of the building.
The owners of the facility are Aaron Stroup, Steve and Tina Sims, and
Stroup said the goal is to build a customer base of local residents
now having to travel to Fort Wayne to work out at a fitness gym.
"We want to provide a nice environment for people to go work
out," Stroup said. "This is something that should do well, and
we're going to make a go of it."
The Huntington Health Club will offer a variety of the most up to
date weight training and cardiovascular equipment. There will also be
classes offered in aerobics, Tae-Bo and American Tae Kwon Do. The
business will also offer child care services.
Another feature of the business will be 20 tanning beds. Steve and
Tina Sims will close their Tan and Tone Tanning Salon at 9 E. Market
St., and run the tanning bed portion of the Huntington Health Club. The
facility will also have saunas and massage therapy.
A contest is also being held to design a logo for the business. The
winning entry will receive a year's paid membership. Entries can be
submitted at Tan and Tone.
