WAPAKONETA — Locally owned 24-hour fitness center Wapak Athletic Club has opened a new fitness center on Dixie Highway.
The 11,000 square-foot fitness center features a large workout room, two studios, onsite physical therapy and a specialty café, among other amenities.
Owner Rebecca Manger, a longtime personal trainer herself, is working with local companies Lima’s Finest Food Company and Livie Juice, which will sell meal prep and organic juices at the club’s café.
“The entire premise of the new building is to host the WAC family so that they can feel the energy and enthusiasm of working together to become healthier, stronger and more vitalized,” Manger said.
The 610 N. Dixie Highway facility is twice the size of the Wapak Athletic Club’s previous facility in downtown Wapakoneta, which first opened about 20 years ago.
“We were out of room for classes,” Manger said. “We had to turn people away. Now the classes are all expanding.”
The club will hold a grand opening celebration at 6:30 p.m. Monday.
