On April 29th, the St. John’s County Chamber of Commerce held an official ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Fit20 workout studio in Nocatee, Northeast Florida’s third Fit20 location.
The 1,100 square-foot workout studio in Nocatee is one of the 160 studios spanned over eight countries. Jacksonville’s other two Fit20 studios, in Jacksonville Beach and Tapestry Park, welcomed their third franchise with an opportunity to bring the fast and effective workout training to the Nocatee area.
“We have always thought Nocatee was a great area,” said Conner Battreall, new franchise owner and son of Regional Developer Cathy Battreall.
Battreall, a longtime Jacksonville resident and University of North Florida graduate, said that becoming the franchise owner of the Nocatee location was a no-brainer. He had worked with his mother on other location projects and was heavily involved with the development of the Jacksonville Beach Fit20 location.
Battreall received his Fit20 certification and training at the Jacksonville Beach location and is now excited to bring the magic of Fit20 directly to the Nocatee area.
“Our workouts are only 20 minutes, but we didn’t want it to take 30 minutes or more to get to the studio,” said Cathy Battreall in a website posting. “We are now within golf cart reach for residents in the Nocatee community.”
Fit20’s unique appeal comes from its quick and simple workout format, with scientific evidence to back it up. Members experience an intense, full-body workout with strength-training machines for only 20 minutes, once or twice per week. The company also utilizes advanced sensor technology to provide with live accurate feedback of their performance and help perfect a member’s form to virtually eliminate the risk of injury, post-exercise muscle soreness, and maximize results.
“I think that the benefits of strength training and what it really does for your overall health and well-being really speaks to the people of Nocatee,” said Conner Battreall.
The Fit20 Nocatee location is already open and accepting membership opportunities. All new members receive their first training for free, including a health assessment and a 45-minute in-studio session with a certified Fit20 trainer. The Fit20 locations are following COVID-19 guidelines, as per CDC recommendation.
