YPC Fitness expands to Radium

While summer is drawing to a close, it's never too early to get a start on your beach body for next year.

While summer is drawing to a close, it’s never too early to get a start on your beach body for next year and with a new location in Radium Hot Springs, YPC (Your Personal Choice) Fitness is aiming to help you do exactly that.

“We wanted it to be open for the long weekend, just to get it out there,” said YPC Fitness owner Darryl Stettler. “We’ve already had quite a few people asking us about it.”

Located at 4995 Highway 93 in Radium Hot Springs, the new roughly 500-square foot facility opened on Friday (August 31) and also shares a building with the new Gerry’s Gelati in Radium, whose staff will be running the facility. Featuring brand new state-of-the art equipment, the gym should be a welcome addition to Radium Hot Springs as there are not many other facilities like it in the immediate area, said Stettler. Equipment for a wide range of workouts and varying intensities will be available, and will cater to fitness enthusiasts of all shapes and sizes.

“You can do everything, full body workout from pilates to plyometrics, cross fit, heavy weightlifting… everything is right there,” Stettler said.

YPC Fitness also has a location in Invermere that opened earlier this year, and Stettler said that at the time he never really thought about the possibility of opening a second location. Fast forward several months, and with business booming at the original location, Stettler is happy to say he hopes the new Radium location won’t be his last, as he also plans on opening up more locations in the region over the next couple years.

“It feels awesome (to open a second location), I’m really excited,” said Stettler. “The setup we’ve created here, we’ve been able figure out a great method of running a fitness centre. I think Radium really needed it, and a lot of people have asked me to (open a location there).”
