A new weight and fitness room is scheduled to open next Monday. The room located at 104 E. First St. will feature weights, treadmills, a stationary bike and a variety of other items.

Local residents will soon have a new weight and fitness room available for use, as well as personal trainer services being offered by Kenneth Heilig.

The room is located at 104 E. First St. in Whitehall and will be open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m., and 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. The room will also be open Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 10 a.m.

According to Heilig, the mostly brand new equipment includes treadmills, a stationary bike, weight bench with barbells, bands and tubes, two ab machines, along with dumbbells and various other weights. There is also a television and mats available for residents to do workout videos. Heilig said the room isn't for a hard core lifter, but more for someone aged 25 to 75 who is trying to get into shape.

"This is something positive for the community," he said.

Heilig said he saw a need for a place like this in Whitehall. The cost to use the room will be $25 a month, and Heilig said he wants to keep it at a reasonable cost.

He said with the current hours he is trying to accommodate everyone, but if there is the demand he will open up the room additional days. Heilig had the room painted with bright colors and feels it is a really good and positive environment to work out in. It is scheduled to open Monday, January 16.

Heilig has always had a passion for working out and in the past has been an active participant in lifting competitions.

Last year he became a Certified Personal Trainer after passing a course from the National Council of Strength and Fitness based out of Coral Gables, Florida.

Heilig said there is a great deal that goes into helping a client and he will look into a lot of areas of their life, including nutrition and habits in an effort to provide them a better qualify of life.

Much like the cost of the workout room, Heilig wants to keep his personal trainer costs reasonable at $20 an hour.

He will also schedule times outside of the fitness room hours to work individually with his clientele.

"I personally feel better after I exercise, especially as I get older," he said.
