Club Spotlight-Natural State Fitness
James "Buddy" Lee came to GymCrafters about a year ago, with the dream of opening his own gym in the small town of Manilla, Arkansas. Last fall, he made that dream a reality.
Buddy Lee is unlike a lot of young college students finishing their last year at school. Buddy Lee wanted more. He knew that he was built for entrepreneurship, and he wanted to open a gym.
One day, as he was doing cardio, and "you-tubing", he decided to look for how to open a gym. He found GymCrafters, liked what we had to say, and gave us a call.
GymCrafters helped him with location, planning, and getting his gym put together.
After months of planning and preparation and a lot of hard work, Natural State Fitness opened their doors on October 1st 2015.
Natural State Fitness is a 5,000 SF 24 hour facility complete with group fitness, childcare, tanning and massage therapy. Personal training is also available.
Buddy and his team did a 6 week presale and opened with 150 members and after only 3 months in business, they are now up to over 350! The demand is so great, Buddy is already looking to expand into a larger building! What a great start!
