Anytime Fitness plans grand reopening

— The Anytime Fitness club in Avon Park has been undergoing a major renovation for its fifth-year anniversary that will be followed by a grand reopening celebration June 3-5.

“The primary reason we’re reinventing is to make working out at Anytime Fitness as fun and enjoyable as possible,” said club owner Ricky Hayes. “Everyone knows that exercising is hard work. By redesigning the club and adding new equipment, we hope our members will get the best results possible and look forward to working out even more often.”

Improvements to the club include an upscale design, brighter interior, new flooring, more open spaces, an inspiration wall and some new exercise machines.

“We’re very excited about our upgrades,” said Hayes. “I’ve been impressed in Orangewood Builders’ ability to construct around our hours, allowing us to leave our doors open 24/7 for members to exercise throughout the process. “

The grand reopening celebration will kick off with a chamber ribbon-cutting ceremony 5:30 p.m. June 3.

“We know that our existing members, who have been with us since we first opened, are going to love the new look,” Hayes said. “But we also hope that those who have been curious about the club, but never joined, will come to the party and check us out. There’s no better time than the present to get started on the path to a healthier and happier lifestyle.”

Everyone who attends the grand reopening June 3-5 will receive a guided tour and free seven-day passes to the club.

In addition, Boom Boom’s is wrapping up the construction of Sebring’s newest indoor shooting range, Aim-Right Tactical Training Center & Indoor Shooting Range. The range is expected to open within the next few weeks. This addition will make Boom Boom’s the largest gun and ammo store within a 45-mile radius.

Sebring Chamber learns about Aeromed

— The May Sebring Chamber of Commerce networking luncheon was a special treat for about 80 attendees, with the Aeromed helicopter landing right outside the Sun ‘N Lake Golf Club in Sebring. Fortunately, they were not there to respond to a crisis, but to sponsor the May Sebring Chamber luncheon, held on May 8 at Island View Restaurant .

Attendees were provided interesting and lifesaving information by Aeromed Tampa General Hospital, and the flight crew and staff were on hand to show off the helicopter and answer questions.

In addition to the program, Student of the Month awards were also given to deserving recipients. April and May award winners were Micaela DeVane and Angie Patino. They were provided with a voucher for a four-day superticket for the 12 Hours of Sebring by Sebring International Raceway, and a $50 check sponsored by Central Security.
