OWENSBORO, Ky. (5/5/14) – A desire to continue her workout routine she began at a local fitness center in Lexington prompted Annie McCrary to open her own franchise center in her hometown of Owensboro.
McCrary and her husband Nick decided to return to their Owensboro roots with plans to start a family, too.
Pure Barre, located in Wesleyan Park Plaza, opened on Wednesday. The new facility joined the Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce right away, and McCrary and her staff were welcomed to the community with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
McCrary told SurfKY News the fitness center employs five instructors, and offers classes for groups up to 25 people daily. She said the classes are offered to both men and women, and start as early as 5:30 a.m. As many as six classes are offered throughout the day.
The classes are described as “low-impact,” which McCrary explained means they don’t consist of high-energy activities like jumping or cardio exercises, but are targeted and focused specific body sections followed by stretching.
McCrary said she is glad she had the opportunity to convert her hobby into a business for the local community.
“We’re so proud to bring something like this to Owensboro,” McCrary said.
McCrary and her husband said they look forward to adding new elements to the fitness center as it grows.
