Gainesville, FL -- Gainesville Health & Fitness received the 2014 Business of the Year Awards Best Business Expansion award from the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce. The annual awards celebrate the business community’s best and brightest.

The expansion added 12,000 square feet of space to the GHF flagship facility located at 4820 Newberry Road in Gainesville, FL. The project is part of a multimillion-dollar expansion and remodeling of the facility.

Upstairs the additional space included an expanded state-of-the-art SkyCycle studio with MyRide technology, a boxing studio and expanded weight training and cardio spaces. On the first floor the space houses an all-new clinic for ReQuest Physical Therapy, which was previously housed in another part of the facility.

The expansion and remodel includes a new conference center, member connection lounges and signature studios for programs like group exercise, X-Force Body Fat Breakthrough program, TRIBE Team Training, Personal Training, and Pilates.

The Business of the Year Awards are judged by an anonymous, non-employee panel of Chamber stakeholders.
