MONTROSE – Anytime Fitness, the only 24-hour fitness club in Montrose, will soon open a new group exercise studio where members can take classes by video to take a wide variety of fitness classes, any time, day or night.

Anytime Fitness Manager Shawn Wentz said the new 600-square-foot-studio will offer “Fitness on Request” videos on a large high-definition screen with state-of-the-art sound for a wide variety of exercise regimens.

“Fitness on Request and the classes it offers will create an outstanding variety of exercises for our members, and will complement the live classes of Pilates, sports specific exercises and core classes that we already offer,” Wentz said.

The fitness club, located on the second story in a building in on the south side of Oxbow Crossing shopping center, with large windows on three sides, offers state of the art equipment and the best views in town, Wentz said. The main room contains scores of exercise machines geared to anyone’s needs, he said.

Equipment in the new wood-paneled room will include a computerized kiosk supplied by Fitness on Request, its developer. The kiosk provides “a simple method to take and schedule … classes as well as view and reserve a seat in your live classes,” according to the Fitness on Request website.

The new room will be up and running early next month, expanding the club to more than 4,500 square feet, he said.

“Fitness on Request is a national company that partnered with Anytime Fitness,” Wentz said. “We’re one of their pilot clubs, only the thirteenth in the nation.”

The new studio will be used by live instructors during weekdays, he said, and the automated program offers many areas of fitness training from Tai Chi and classical aerobics to Pilates and cardio kickboxing, with new classes added every month.

“One of the outstanding points is that it goes along with the Anytime Fitness brand,” Wentz said. “You can come in and take classes any time, day or night.”

Classes scheduled through Fitness on Request are first-come, first-served.

“We’ll have exercise balls and other group fitness apparatus in the room, and a projector will play the class on an 8-by-10 movie screen,” he said.
