FLINT TWP. — A Snap Fitness Center at 1381 W. Bristol Road has reopened under new ownership.
When the previous operator moved out in August, George Zerka, who owns the strip mall where it is located, said he began making plans to reopen the gym.
“It was a very busy gym,’’ said Zerka, who now owns the 3,750 square-foot gym with his brother Joseph.
“I think the area needs a fitness place,’’ Zerka said, during an October 11 ribbon cutting.
Zerka, who also runs a convenience store in the plaza, said it is his first fitness center but he hopes to open another one in the township if this one is successful.
A staff of five have scheduled work hours. But the premise of Snap Fitness centers is that they are open around-the-clock. Members receive a swipe card key to gain access to the building at their convenience.
The gym is the first in the state to have Octane Lateral cross-circuit machines, said personal trainer Melanie Vaughn. It also has state-ofart Matrix exercise machines.
