The largest locally owned fitness company in North Carolina will be doing some heavy lifting this summer as it prepares for expansion. O2 Fitness is continuing its recent growth by announcing it has acquired three new clubs in Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Wake Forest. This announcement comes on the heels of news earlier this month that the company will open a brand new location in Wilmington later this year, bringing the total number of O2 Fitness clubs across the state to 12.
“We’re excited to announce the addition of our newest clubs to the O2 Fitness family,” said Michael Olander, CEO of O2 Fitness. “We believe the Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Wake Forest clubs will be an asset to residents of the Triangle. We look forward to helping new members reach their health and fitness goals and to providing current members with the updated facilities and amenities they want.”
O2 Fitness took over the two new Chapel Hill clubs, which are located at 257 S. Elliott Road in Chapel Hill and at 503 W. Main Street in Carrboro, on June 1. Both clubs occupy approximately 20,000 square feet of space perfect for shaping up and slimming down. From young professionals to students to adults, the group fitness schedules and customized personal training sessions are suited to fit the needs of the Chapel Hill and Carrboro communities. Current amenities include equipment with personal entertainment screens and a full line of strength equipment, as well as a full roster of group fitness classes. The Elliott Road location also features an indoor cycling studio, while Carrboro offers CrossFit classes.
O2 Fitness has plans to tone up the appearance of the new Chapel Hill locations within the next several months as well. Members can expect to find new paint and flooring throughout the clubs, a functional training area, indoor turf and improved locker room amenities. They can push their limits at bootcamp, enjoy more group fitness classes and will be able to relax and unwind post-workout in a new member lobby lounges with free WiFi. The Elliot Road club will soon offer a women’s-only area and brand new plasma televisions. Fitness enthusiasts who frequent the Carrboro club can take advantage of the new cycle studio and try out new and improved equipment.
The O2 Fitness Express at Wake Forest is conveniently located for those people living or working in northern Wake County. Located just off U.S. Highway 1 at 2109 S. Main Street, the newly acquired club’s vaulted ceilings and natural lighting make for a cool, comfortable workout space featuring high-quality cardio machines, strength-training equipment, functional fitness gear and more. In addition to state-of-the-art equipment and machines, the new location will also feature group fitness classes and personal training sessions by appointment. New members of O2 Fitness receive two complimentary personal training sessions when they join. The facility is open 24 hours a day to allow busy members to fit in a workout any time that suits their schedule. O2 Fitness Express at Wake Forest opened for business in May.
O2 Fitness has strong ties to nonprofit organizations in the communities in which it operates and hosts special events such as Shape Up Downtown to benefit the Triangle community. O2 Fitness has donated more than $40,000 in memberships to date in 2013 and is a proud sponsor of Children’s Flight of Hope, Band Together, Frankie Lemmon, and Miracle League of the Triangle. O2 Fitness plans to continue to entrench itself in the communities it serves, and to expand its presence across N.C. and beyond.
