Humford Equities has announced the opening of two new businesses in the Country Club Shopping Center and the addition of a new health and wellness section at Thomas’s Family Market.
The Country Club Shopping Center encompasses 60,000 square feet of space anchored by Thomas’ Family Market on Route 309 in Dallas Twp. With the two new additions, the shopping center is fully leased.
Anytime Fitness is opening with a VIP members’ party on Thursday, Sept. 25.
The gym is staffed eight hours a day, but members can access the club 24-hours, 7-days-a-week at their convenience – even during un-staffed hours – using a computerized key-fob system. Nationwide, the average Anytime Fitness club has about 800 members.
Personal trainers are available to help members learn how to use all of the equipment and to develop an individualized workout plan. There is also a ‘Fitness on Request’ system that allows members to choose from dozens of video classes whenever it’s most convenient for them.
Equipment and amenities include circuit and resistance training machines, group fitness classes, free weights and state-of-the-art cardio equipment, including treadmills, elliptical machines and stationary bikes. The cardio equipment offers complete movie and television accessibility, including email, Facebook and Pandora. Special corporate and hero rates, including military, police, fire, teachers and students, are available at Anytime Fitness.
High Energy Fitness & Karate also recently opened in a 1,880 square foot space in the Country Club Shopping Center. According to owner John Filer, Sr., High Energy Fitness & Karate teaches the American Freestyle system of martial arts, which incorporates techniques from a variety of martial arts systems, including a combination of the Korean-based system of Tang Soo Do karate, boxing, kickboxing, Hap-Ki-Do and some weapons.
Filer also owns High Energy Fitness & Karate at 112-B River St., Tunkhannock. In addition to training the mind, body, and spirit, karate also offers physical training that emphasizes progressive development of strength, flexibility and aerobic capacity, according to Filer.
To compliment the two new fitness facilities in the Country Club Shopping Center, Thomas’ Family Markets is implementing a new health and wellness section in the front of the store.
“This Friday, we are putting in about 250 items that gym and fitness-goers generally are looking for,” reports Christopher M. Evans, co-owner and director of retail operations, Thomas’ Family Markets. “It ranges from all types of proteins to energy bars and granola. Thomas’ is making an investment of about $10,000 to cater to all the new business we are hoping the fitness centers bring to the shopping center.”
