Freedom Fitness now open 24-7
By Michael Johnson, Editor
For those looking to get into shape for swimsuit season, there are few excuses to say you can’t find the time now that Washburn’s Freedom Fitness Center is open 24 hours a day and seven days a week. The new key card system that owner/operator Kayla Sweeney had installed allows members to use a key to access the exercise equipment anytime. She said she jumped for the investment because that’s what the community asked for. “Based on the needs of the community I decided to go 24-7,” Sweeney said. She had a number of people tell her that they would work out, but they could not make it in during the regular hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Her new summer business hours are noon to 3 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Sweeney welcomes people to call the fitness center anytime to set up an appointment with her. She can walk interested folks through the use of the equipment and explain rates and take suggestions. “I’ll come whenever,” Sweeney said of setting up appointments.
