Personal Training a Great “Fit” For IDA

WALTON – With the assistance of the Delaware County Industrial Development Agency, Empowered by You Fitness in Walton is expanding. Owned by personal trainer Stacey Stevens, Empowered by You Fitness will soon be home to a state-of-the-art fitness studio complete with a child activity center, stationary equipment, a yoga flat, a meditation garden and one-acre outdoor obstacle course.

The studio will accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through a keyless entry system for members.

Stevens said she is excited to be able to reach more people with the growth of her business and wants people to know that Empowered by You Fitness is more than just a gym. People will now have choices in how they achieve their physical fitness goals. Her goal, she said, is to get people excited about health and fitness in a supportive environment.

The studio, located at 386 Camelot Drive in Walton is expected to open mid-June and will offer a variety of classes including, strength training, full body circuit training, cardio classes, kick boxing, yoga, meditation, spinning and more. Day passes for non-members will also be available.

The $32,000, five-year, low-interest loan has helped make Stevens’ dream of owning a full-service fitness studio a reality. “This is really a dream come true,” Stevens said.

IDA President James Thomson said Stevens’ business plan was not only well put-together, but that the studio serves a niche, growing market. “I have no doubt that this will be a successful business and is something that is both wanted and needed in the area,” Thomson said.
