The Mesquite Chamber of Commerce celebrated new ownership and management at Anytime Fitness with a ribbon cutting on Feb. 23.

Along with the established 24-hour access to nearly every kind of exercise equipment, Terrie MacArthur will be providing yoga classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The class is free with a paid membership.

Manager Greg Gold has been working with the franchise since its creation in 2002. Mesquite is just one of 3,000 branches nationwide. His first branch was in Brainerd, Minn. before opening some of his own in Wisconsin and Texas, and he also worked for several other branches in many of the western states. His most recent stint was in Reno, where the owners, Watchmen Fitness Group, LLC, has several other branches.

“This gym has a different demographic, and it’s awesome. Meeting people, setting goals and hearing about all walks of life is a great perk to the job,” he said.
