Business Buzz: Ageless Muscle
Business name: Ageless Muscle
Address: 20 Church Hill Road, Newtown
Owner: Amy Holt
What is your business background? The business officially opened February 21 this year. I’ve been working on and off for big box gyms for nine years, and I just got tired of it. I got tired of feeling like a salesperson and not like a trainer. I just wanted to break out of my shell and not have to follow certain quotas. I like being able to help people the best I can. I’m a fitness rebel. I don’t like just putting people on machines. I believe strength training will help you lose weight more than just cardio, and I like to teach balance and foundational movements.
What is your business’ focus? I provide one-on-one personal training, small group personal training, virtual training, and I do boot camp classes on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. We’re located on the second floor, so when you first walk in there is my office where we talk about nutrition, as well as short-term and long-term goals. We have a warm-up/cool-down room with our assault bike, rower, treadmill, and elliptical. Then our big room is where the weights, squat rack, and cables are located.
What is something important to you that readers know about your business? I hear all the time that my workouts are tough, but people have a good time. You can reach your goals and we can have fun getting there — it will be painful and needs hard work, but it is going to be a lot of fun and a lot of learning.
Do you have any upcoming promotions, events, or seasonal specials? The promotion that I have going on right now is that those who come out and try the studio get their first boot camp class for free. Also, a ribbon cutting ceremony with Newtown Chamber of Commerce will be sometime in the future.
Hours: The Wednesday beginner class is 7 to 8 am, the Thursday intermediate class is 8 to 9 am, and the Friday advanced class is 8 to 9 am. One-on-one training takes place Monday through Friday from 5 am to 2 pm. Saturday appointments are by request only.
