PEORIA, IL—September 2, 2019—Styles Fitness and Wellness, LLC recently announced Styles Studios Fitness, a new breed of fitness club merging the boutique studio experience with a traditional health club model, will open their first location in January 2020. The facility will operate under one roof with one membership model and house 4 unique boutique studios, a full-service gym floor, a smoothie and coffee bar, Functional Nutrition Coaching, and the region’s first Dexa+ office offering medical-grade body composition scanning, fitness testing and Wellness Coaching.
Styles Studios Fitness is the result of incorporating consumer research from the International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) and best practices from around the world in fitness, technology and customer engagement. The components of body composition measurement, fitness testing, nutrition and wellness coaching have been mindfully added to engage members more holistically and deeply in pursuit of a healthy lifestyle.
“This is a 2-year brainchild. We are elated to finally share with the world as a new club model,” says Carrie Kepple, Co-Owner at Styles Studios Fitness. “We have assembled an incredible leadership team comprising 75 years of combined global fitness experience to realize this dream and have received incredibly positive feedback from the community since announcing we’re coming.”
