They are taking over the huge space formerly occupied by Locke Supply in Portland Plaza at NW 39th & Portland.

They are currently in Joplin, Topeka, Arlington and Bartlesville.

OUR VISION: To provide a great value fitness experience in a positive, uplifting environment that glorifies God.

$5 or $10 membership options. I do like the incentive of having to go to the gym to keep it at $5, else it's $20. Still hard to see how these places make any money, unless the trainers/massages are machines?

Interesting that it's Colaw.

Colaw is not a very common name, as far as I know.

Joplin, which you listed as a location for them, has the town of Carthage MO as a part of the Joplin area. In Carthage there is Colaw RV and Colaw RV Salvage.

Colaw RV and Colaw RV Salvage are HUGE. If I'm not mistaken, they have the largest parts departments in the US and also the largest RV salvage and used parts in the country.

I'll bet they are involved in this Fitness Center, and good for them, I admire that.
