Snap Fitness reopens in downtown Uvalde building Uvalde Leader-News

Almost 10 years after owner John Beatty first opened Snap Fitness in Uvalde, the facility has moved to the old town subdivision and is housed at 330 N. Getty St., an 11,400-square foot brick masonry office building that once housed the Central Power & Light Company

before sitting vacant for 15 years.

On Aug. 10, Snap Fitness celebrated the grand opening of its new location. The center staff was joined by the Uvalde Area Chamber of Commerce for a ribbon-cutting ceremony with free samples and spin the wheel prizes for attendees.

The new center opened after close to a year of remodeling.

“It was exciting to bring this historical building back to life, which holds so many memories for this town,” said Blake Murdoch, Snap Fitness multi-club director. “We are excited for it to be a building that brings nothing but good to this community.”

The new location provides a larger space to spread out the machines as well as a wide variety of equipment and specific training areas. Even before the process was necessitated by COVID-19, Snap Fitness provided sanitation products. Now the business has spread out its workout equipment in an effort to keep members safe.

Staff members say they are building a solid class and personal training program for gym members. Multiple employees are available to help members find the plan that works for them, including four personal trainers: Pete Alvarez, who studied under the International Sports Science Association; Jessellyn Alvarez, who also studied under the International Sports Science Association and runs a nutrition and meal prep company called FIT830; Abby Rangel, who has a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology and is studying under the National Academy of Sports Medicine; and Edna Velasquez, who studied under the American Council on Exercise.

In the future they plan on adding a daycare system and incorporating a health store or smoothie bar.

Snap Fitness is open around the clock and provides cardio equipment, weights and functional training areas as well as high resolution televisions and Myzone technology.
