Metro Fitness Club, offering Charlotte a new level of personalized and efficient fitness experience in an upscale setting, will open its doors mid-September, at Tranquil Court, 2820 Selwyn Avenue, Suite 200. The club specializes in custom designed, results-driven personal and small group training programs. The 8,200 square foot facility will cater to all fitness levels, offer state-of-the-art equipment and provide more than 40 weekly classes where members receive innovative, personalized training led by professionally trained staff determined to support members in achieving their fitness goals. Metro Fitness Small Group Training will provide individualized instruction and coaching for groups at a fraction of the cost of one-on-one personal training. Classes will include CrossFit (led by high-level CrossFit-certified instructors), Kettlebell and Athletic Conditioning. CrossFit classes specifically designed for tweens and teenagers will also be offered. Amenities include a smoothie bar featuring a full line of nutritional supplements, cutting-edge audio visual technology including flat-screen TVs and sound system, and well appointed locker rooms with towel service. The club’s six distinct training areas are Strength Training featuring Life Fitness Signature Series and Hammer Strength by Life Fitness equipment; a Turf Area for athletic drills; a CrossFit Training Area; a Functional Training Area; Stretching Area; and a Cardiovascular Training Area featuring Cardio by Life Fitness machines, including treadmills, elliptical cross-trainers, exercise bikes and stair climbers that have 17-inch HD flat panel screens with iPod connectivity. Metro Fitness Club will also house a Purmotion “Functional Training Station” which allows for individual or group workouts using resistance training for total body toning. The Purmotion FTS system has tiered pull-up bars and anchors for climbing ropes, rings and AirFit trainers. “We have created Metro Fitness to incorporate everything we want to meet our fitness goals — top staff, the latest training techniques and technologies, and a spotless and convenient location,” says co-owner Dar Malecki. Co-owner Denise Abood adds, “Metro Fitness fills a void in the Charlotte fitness arena by perfecting the personalized, upscale experience for our members. We’ve also placed great care and attention on the aesthetics.” Malecki and Abood have assembled a premier team of fitness experts, led by General Manager, Thea Winick-Turnbull and Director of Training Services, Jimmy Pitsiniagas. Metro Fitness Club is currently offering a one-time promotion where monthly fees are reduced and the $75 enrollment fee is waived.
