Did You Know?

Cranbrook is the sunniest city in British Columbia, with Kimberley right on its heels. Both communities enjoy over 300 days of sunshine per year.

Fitness Inc. has a new location opening in January 2018

New building will offer 3,800 square feet of additional space, new equipment and amazing views of the Rocky Mountains

Windows are a focal point of the building so that members can enjoy amazing views of Fisher Peak and the Steeples Mountain range while they exercise.

People living and working in Cranbrook never tire of the city’s amazing view of the Rocky Mountains – and Trevor Zak, CEO of Fitness Inc. knows it. That’s one of the reasons why he’s thrilled to be moving his business into a new location at 201 Industrial Road F, across from the entrance to Wildstone Golf Course, in January 2018.

Construction on this 12,500-square-foot, two-storey building began in the spring of 2017. When complete, it will include a 1,200-square-foot group exercise room, an 800-square-foot ladies-only section and a 3,800-square-foot weight lifting area with brand new equipment. There will also be a spinning-only room, a cardio section with vaulted ceilings and a large child-minding room.

Fitness Inc. will also be adding an outdoor group exercise area in the spring of 2018, followed by an outdoor free weight section and a patio for the existing smoothie bar. The new facility is located close to a public transit stop and it will have plenty of parking.

A local success story

Fitness Inc. is presently located in the Tamarack Centre shopping mall in Cranbrook where it started in 2002 as a Gold’s Gym franchise. For some time, Zak operated the business as a World’s Gym franchise before going forward independently in 2013.

Over the years, Zak and his staff have earned a reputation of providing a clean facility, equipment that always works and excellent customer service.

“Our members have supported us for 15 years and we’ve outgrown our current location,” he said. “We see our new location as having tons of potential and a beautiful setting for our current and future members to work out at, with amazing views!”

The new location is 3,800 square feet larger than its present space.

Fitness Inc. is also an active member of the community. During Cranbrook’s annual Sam Steele Days, it hosts the Strongman Competition with proceeds from raffle tickets sold going to the BC SPCA. On long-term memberships, Fitness Inc. charges a $25 donation fee that goes to the BC SPCA and it donates to other local charities and organizations.

In a region like ours, having good business practices and giving back to the community don’t go unnoticed.
