Business Buzz: Legion Fitness expands to Victory Building in downtown Craig

Legion Fitness, LLC has signed a new lease at the Victory Building in downtown Craig, giving the business the opportunity to expand, according to a news release.

To better suit the growing family of Legion Fitness, now over 50 members strong, the business will be moving to the Victory Building in downtown Craig, the news release stated.

In addition to more space, they will also be adding five new certified coaches as well as additional class times. With the additional space and in an effort to make work outs more convenient for members, Legion Fitness will also have a designated area for the kids to hang out and play while their parents are working out. For the older teens they now also have an opportunity to learn fitness techniques and join classes side by side with their parents for a healthy future.

Jeff Boss, owner and operator of Legion Fitness, had been looking for several months for a space in Craig to move his growing business.

“Due to the success and popularity of our programs, we outgrew our current space. The new location at the Victory Building provides us with enough room to expand services and gives us great exposure along Victory Way,” Boss said in a statement.

The new space, located at 13 West Victory Way, will undergo tenant improvements in the coming month and Legion Fitness anticipates beginning classes at the new location in the near future.
