Belmont County fitness center expansion

Belmont County, Ohio

A fitness center in Belmont County is making some major progress.

Source Fitness Center started out in a 900 square foot basement, and now it's expanding into a brand new building nearly ten times its size.

"The process from transitioning from my basement to here is obviously a long process, it took us roughly 3.5 years," said Source Fitness Owner, Justin Green.

Green said this idea originated in his 900 square foot basement, where he got the idea of putting a weight room in, just having a few friends over to work out.

From there it grew to about 2,500 square feet, and from there, to a beautiful, new 8,500 square foot building on Tinmar Drive in St. Clairsville.

Green liked this location because of the easy access from Route 40, and the visibility from Route 70, being away from highly trafficked areas.

It's been a lot of hard work but green said he's excited and relieved to finally have it completed.

"Fitness and working out I'm very passionate about it, one of my greatest hobbies, I enjoy in life, so anytime in get to do that and make a living off of it is very rewarding," said Green.

"We love it when big retail and restaurants open, but when a young entrepreneur like Justin seizes an opportunity and takes a chance investing so much time and so many resources into our community, we are thrilled. Small businesses like source fitness are truly the heart of a successful local economy," said Belmont County Commissioner, Mark Thomas.

Source fitness has a modern feel to it with a cutting-edge look.

Monday morning at 9:00 source fitness it having their official grand opening, where you'll be able to see inside for the first time.

On Monday night, Ohio Valley native and musclepharm co-founder, Cory Gregory, will be there from 6-8 p.m.

Source fitness will also be offering cross-fit and classes such as zumba and yoga.

General memberships are $40 a month, and from that you can add the cross-fit packages plus tanning packages.
