We moved back to Johnstown from California in 2002 as Kelly wanted to return to her hometown. We were both dedicated gym goers for many years and after using the gyms Johnstown had to offer, we were never satisfied with the selection.
As a seasoned police officer and an RN, in 2012 we decided to take our passion for fitness and a huge leap of faith and open a 10,000 square foot 24-7 accessible fitness facility in Richland Township AKA the “east hill.” MorGainz Fitness (originally known as Richland Fitness) was born on April 16,2012 and boasted 500 members in the 1st month!!! The facility catered to all levels and removed any possible excuse people could come up with as “reasons” to not go to the gym. We designed a family oriented facility that a new person would be comfortable in as well as enough equipment and weights that hardcore lifters, body builders and advanced exercisers would need. We decided on the motto of “No More Excuses.” We started with a few group classes per week that quickly grew to around 20. We also started with 2 Certified Personal Trainers that has also grown to 9.
A very unique part of our facility is its DAYCARE! For members and nonmembers! For a very reasonable fee, people can focus on their workouts while their little ones are well taken care of by our CPR certified daycare staff.
While managing the facility, making mistakes, learning, growing, changing, investing in our members and working out in the facility, we had several members from the Ebensburg area request a gym in that area… which we ended up doing after an unforeseen opportunity presented itself in October of 2014! It’s a smaller version of our Richland gym, but it is packed with everything needed for quality fitness programs regardless of level!!!
In 2016 another unforeseen opportunity presented itself on the “west hill.” Again, we decided to make the most of this one short life we get and to go for it!!! MorGainz Fitness (originally known as West Hills Fitness) opened on December 12, 2016. It is the largest of our facilities and also has 45 yards of turf for speed and agility training. There is not a facility like this anywhere in the surrounding area.
Lastly, we acquired location #4 in Somerset in September 2019. We purchased Precision Fitness in the Georgian Place and have morphed it into a MorGainz Fitness!
We are firm believers in phenomenal customer service, clean facilities and the personal touch of a small business. Our 4 facilities employ over 60 part time people!!! We want to welcome and encourage every person that walks in our door. We want to help change their life!!!
We will be forever grateful to all those who have believed in us and have helped us along the way. It remains surreal looking back over the last 8+ years and see how our dreams have come to life. We have both quit our normal professions and are working in our own facilities full time, sharing our passion with others. We love our fitness family and the relationships we’ve been building over the years. We will continue to grow & learn, fall down & get back up, focusing on the positive and moving forward. We are also in the process of franchising our small business so others will be able to bring our passion to their town! Throughout our 22 year marriage, we have always said that together we can do anything. And here we are – #unstoppable
