ACAC Fitness & Wellness Center to Open New Health Club Near Short Pump

Richmond, VA, September 16, 2010 --( ACAC Fitness & Wellness Center is pleased to announce plans for a new health club in West Broad Village in Richmond. Located a quarter mile from Short Pump Town Center, the new 57,000 square-foot club will span three stories. In addition to state-of-the-art fitness amenities and group class studios, the facility will include an indoor aquatics center, a rooftop pool, and squash and racquetball courts.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to expand our presence in the Richmond market,” says Phil Wendel, ACAC club owner.

Recently recognized as one of the best fitness centers in Richmond and first-place winner for personal training and Pilates by Richmond Magazine, the West Broad Village club will be ACAC’s second location in the Richmond area. ACAC currently operates a 100,000 square-foot facility at 11621 Robious Road in Midlothian.

“What really sets ACAC apart from other gyms is our focus on creating a welcoming environment where everyone, regardless of age or fitness level, feels comfortable working out,” says Greg Wells, ACAC’s CEO. “For example, our award-winning physician referred exercise program, PREP, has helped thousands of individuals with chronic health issues become more physically active.”

Chris Craytor, ACAC’s vice-president of development, believes that West Broad Village is an ideal fit for the health club. “With complementary neighbors, such as Whole Foods, REI, and the Children’s Museum of Richmond, West Broad Village will be a great place for ACAC members to work, live and play.”
