Canyon Fitness (formerly Village Fitness) is now open, and the beautiful atmosphere, top of the line exercise equipment and classes, and knowledgeable and friendly staff are just the beginning. New owners Kyle and Michelle Hettinger recently purchased the business and have completely revamped the local health club, located in The Village at Castle Pines.
The Hettingers have both worked in the health club consulting business for more than twenty years and have degrees in exercise science. The opportunity to purchase the club and achieve their vision of a dynamic health club came at the perfect time in their lives. The Hettingers live locally in Castle Rock, having moved to Colorado nine years ago, and they are thrilled to be raising their two sons in a place they love, while being in the business they know and love so well.
The new owners have made a tremendous investment in all new state-of-the-art exercise equipment including cardio equipment outfitted with individual televisions and iPod docks, all new free-weight equipment, and new resistance equipment. New classes including Barre classes are being added to the schedule to accommodate the members’ requests. According to Kyle, “We plan to stay on the cutting edge of classes. Expect a lot of unique and special formats with all of the standard favorites.”
Aside from the obvious outward changes, the new owners have brought on an accounting and membership system that is run completely online so that members may access their accounts and view the class schedules at their convenience. New uniforms for club employees, an emphasis on cleanliness, and special personal and unique touches throughout the club set it apart from other health clubs. The club is high energy with a vibrant feel, but also offers relaxing whirlpools and spa touches for post-workouts.
The Hettingers intend to be very active in the local community, and are actively partnering with other businesses in The Village. “This is a fun, exciting adventure,” remarked Kyle. “We’ve done health clubs all over the country but this is the club that we’re doing with our friends and family. Our focus is local and we are excited to be a part of this community.”
