If getting in shape is your goal, Fit City Athletica in Williams Lake has all the necessary tools to make it happen.

If getting in shape is your goal, Fit City Athletica in Williams Lake has all the necessary tools to make it happen.

Now in its 20th year in the lakecity, Fit City Athletica recently underwent a change in ownership as former manager Chantelle Hopkins and her husband, Justin, took over the business five months ago from the previous owners.

“We just took over in the middle of April of this year and have been working on some changes,” Chantelle said, adding she was a manager at Fit City Athletica for previous owners Kevin Nohr and Cyndie Nohr.

Most recently the interior and exterior of the building was repainted, and new speakers have been installed in the workout room.

“But we’re unique because we offer 24 hour access to the gym,” she said.

Members are able to access the doors of the facility 24 hours a day through the use of a key card, which unlocks the door.

“We also offer corporate rates for mines and mills which, in this community, is important for those guys and girls,” she said.

The gym houses a variety of workout equipment and machines, she noted, suited for any training regiment.

Fit City Athletica isn’t just a gym, however, it’s also a women’s clothing store and, furthermore, offers tanning and workout supplements.

Since purchasing Fit City Athletica Chantelle said she and her husband have also focused on bringing in a vast variety of workout supplements including pre-, during- and post-workout supplements.

“Right now we’re also working at bringing in TRX and some Olympic rings to add to the gym,” she said, noting Williams Lake’s Trinity Sure recently completed her TRX training and will be teaching a course.

“It’s more one-on-one service back there in the gym.”

With the purchase of a gym membership members have the option of a free one-hour gym orientation.

Fit City is also a 25-and-older gym, Chantelle said, noting it brings with it a more mature, social atmosphere.

“The members become motivational to one another sometimes creating friendships, helping each other achieve their fitness goals,” she said.

Fit City Athletica also has a friendly, helpful staff who are always willing to answer any questions from members.

“If someone’s never been here before they can try out the gym for free,” she said.

Payment plans are also available for anyone who wishes to purchase either a six month or one year membership.
