DRVNfit physical fitness center is now open and accepting registrations. On Aug. 29, DRVNfit held an open house for community members to see the facility and sign up for same day access to the new Leesburg gym.

For anyone who missed the open house, owners will be available at the gym this week with sign up forms and key fobs on Wednesday, Sept. 2, from 4-6 p.m. Registration forms and more information are available on the DRVNfit Facebook page, Mane Street Salon, or by contacting the owners to set up an appointment.

The gym is co-owned by Leesburg community members Greg and Megan Abbott, and Matt and Ellen Binegar.

“Leesburg desperately needs somewhere for adults and student-athletes to train in strength and conditioning,” said Greg Abbott.

Ellen Binegar followed up by saying, “What started as a seed of an idea has taken root and is blossoming. After outgrowing our driveway and shop, we now have plenty of room for equipment, field turf, and a large number of friends and family to join us in our mission to be DRVN.”

Megan Abbott and Ellen Binegar, along with several friends, started exercising and training together in their driveway and barn over two years ago. As more friends wanted to join, they saw the need for a fitness center. Abbott and Binegar, along with others, have been taking classes to become certified personal trainers for DRVNfit.

In addition to a key fob for 24/7 access to the secure facility, membership to DRVNfit includes weekly and daily fitness and strength classes, posted workout of the day (WODs), and continuous support to stay driven.

The new owners have worked hard to make improvements at the gym. The Leesburg building was previously a Fifth Third Bank location. The Binegars and Abbotts took out walls and ceilings, painted, and transformed the building from an office-based facility to an open concept fitness center.

The gym is located at 35 S. Fairfield St., Leesburg. For an appointment or more information, call 937-780-1026 or visit the DRVNfit facebook page.
