New Farmington Hills Gym Kicks Off Community Fitness Challenge at Open House

Gym opens as Metro Fitness Abruptly Closes

Farmington Hills, MI  (  Husband and wife fitness team, Chaka and Angelia Johnson of Next Level Fitness/Team Angie Fitness, are kicking off a 30-day Community Fitness Challenge to help the community live a healthier lifestyle.

The kick off will be held during the gym’s Open House on Saturday, June 15, 2013 from 8am – 3pm.  Located in building 4 at 37712 Hills Tech Research Park in Farmington Hills, the gym opened as a result of the recent closing of Metro Gym.  “We felt we owed it to the community to continue to provide our fitness services in the area,” said Chaka, who is a former personal trainer at Metro Family Fitness.  “We’ve always wanted our own place to train our clients and decided to take a leap.  The rest is history.”

“The Fitness Challenge is a 30-day commitment to a healthier lifestyle,” said Angelia.  “It’s a great opportunity for us to open our gym to the community help families and individuals in our area eat better and exercise.  Sometimes people just need a push to get started and we are more than happy to do that.  Why? Because we care about people.”

During the open house, six personal trainers will be on hand to provide free fit tests, BMI assessments, and nutritional tips.  People can also participate in Boot Camp classes (high energy & low impact), Zumba classes, personal training demonstrations, and performance training demonstrations for athletes.

The open house will be fun for the whole family; it includes door prizes and drawings for a free ½ hour personal training or sports performance session, and free one-month memberships for unlimited classes.  The family that brings the most people will receive $25 cash.
