Local gym makes changes under new ownership

By: Lucas Smith

The local gym is under new ownership and is seeing many new changes. New owners Barry Stober and Max Knapp have been working to renovate the gym and to get more members by purchasing new equipment and by adding new classes to the schedule.

The gym is offering several of their original classes, but they have also established some new programs. Some the classes include interval training, yoga, pilates, boot camp, and zumba.

“I take Zumba typically twice a week. I really like it because it is a lot of fun and it gets me back into the swing of dancing from when I used to be in dance a few years ago,” said senior Chloe Hayman.

The gym is used by many high school students. Freshman Bailey Landfried attends and keeps a detailed exercise routine.

“I warm up by running on the treadmill, then lift, and then I do the stair climber and the bicycle. I like to exercise at the gym because there are people there to motivate me and there are more machines to work out on,” said Landfried.

The prices of the gym vary depending on the kind of membership you get and if you decide to take any of the classes that are offered. The price for a single-adult membership for one month that is automatically renewed every month is $37. If you do not have that membership on auto-renew, the fee is $42. Class fees vary upon which class you decide to take. For Zumba, you pay $10 for each time you attend the class. 

In order to attend the fitness center, you have to have to be at least 14 years of age and be accompanied by an adult or be 16 years of age to attend by yourself.

Earlier in the year after the gym became under new ownership, a contest was held in schools around the county for students to submit a new possible name for the gym.

After the top names were chosen, the gym owners “took a poll through Facebook and let the community decide,” said employee Kaylee Maynard.

Formerly known as the Community Fitness Center, the name that received the most votes was Rip City Fitness.

If you would like to purchase a membership or take any of the classes offered, call Rip City Fitness Center at (304) 372-8381.

  19. We call Buddy our 'oops!' We had no intention of getting a third dog, but after we adopted our second dog, Finn, we kept going back to the organization's website to see how many of the other dogs that were up for adoption were still there

  20. The third dog in this post, Buddy, makes me feel nostalgic. You may or may not know this, but I used to have a dog named Buddy as well. I grew up with Buddy, my family's yellow lab, starting when I was in middle school. He died just this past January after spending twelve years with our family. I know Buddy is a really common name for a dog, but it still made me feel a connection!

  21. One way to do this is to attend Study Hall during lunch, before the next test. Another, powerful way is to make sure that they bring their COMPLETED NOTES to class on the day of the exam. To aid Students in completing their Notes, Mr. Hatfield makes them available on-line through this blog and gives a Study Guide for Students to complete to demonstrate that they have the Notes, and know what to do with them. Bring evidence that you have prepared for the test, students, and you will be rewarded!ABCyacom || y8y8 ||friv 5 online
