Jim's Gym celebrates official grand opening
ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) - Tuesday marked the official beginning of a new chapter for Jim's Gym, as they celebrated their official grand opening.
Jim's Gym which has been in business for 15 years, moved into its new location at 754 Baldwin Street in Elmira in March of last year.
"Prior to this we were on Erie Street on the Southside. This is our fourth location, we had three Southside locations and now here," says Jim Wheaton, owner of Jim's Gym.
Wheaton says the new location offers several great features including state of the art equipment, more showers, nicer locker facilities and much more.
"This is the first time we've went so far in. What I mean by that is, we put everything new into this gym when we moved. We retrofitted this old garage space and turned it into a fitness facility," says Wheaton.
This month, Jim's Gym will be doing something special for Chemung County Meals on Wheels.
"We decided for the month of January to give 10 percent back out of all the new memberships we signed up, for the month of January. Anything that we signed up today, we're going to double that and give it back to Meals On Wheels," says Wheaton.
