Dynamic Fitness to Open New Facility in Katy, TX


HOUSTON, TX (PRWEB) April 17, 2015

Dynamic Fitness will be opening its fourth location in the Houston Energy Corridor in the third quarter of 2015, the company announced in mid-April. The new Barker Cypress facility will be located off I-10, in Katy.

“This is a great opportunity to expand our brand and give our consumers another location to work out at,” said Dynamic Fitness CEO Jared Williams. “We’re thrilled with a location right off I-10 — it’s probably our best visual location thus far.”

Williams explained that the new location is in an area that will serve the fitness company’s demographic well, and is located a convenient distance from the existing three facilities. “All of our locations are 20 to 25 minutes from one another, so we’ll be able to offer more of an ‘all-club access’ model where guests can easily use all of our facilities,” he commented.

The 32,000-square-foot space will be one of the brand’s larger clubs, offering an Olympic-sized swimming pool and amenities such as saunas and Jacuzzis.

Aside from providing guests with the best workout and post-work experience, Williams said he’s also excited about the opportunities this will provide to team members.

“This helps with our growth mission we’ve shared with all Dynamic employees, the way we can provide growth and enhancements and future opportunities for people to join our team,” he said. He continued on to express how proud the chain is to be succeeding as a home-grown company competing with large national chains.

The decision to execute the plan for the new facility was made only about three weeks ago, and the company is now preparing for a construction and remodeling period.

“That way when we re-open the facility, it will have all our touches and branding,” Williams concluded. “We want our members to have the best possible experience when they walk into our clubs.”

About Dynamic Fitness

Their amenities, spread out through 30,000 sq. feet facilities, include tanning, free weight areas, swimming pools, group training programs, and more, in addition to convenient open hours.
