Jamesons purchase Better Body Fitness BY DAVID PECK There's been a chang- ing of the guard at the Bet- ter Body Fitness workout center in downtown Lovell with the purchase of the business by Mike and Cris- ty Jameson and Michael and Stormy Jameson. The business was start- ed by Chad and Lindsay Lindsay and partners Kev- in Walker and Jodi Lind- say in 2005. Steve Hult- gren bought the business a few years ago, and after he returned it to the origi- nal owners, the Jamesons stepped up this spring to purchase the business, tak- ing over operations on May 20. They have purchased "the business, the building and everything in it," Cris- ty Jameson said. Since then, the fami- ly has been painting and checking and servicing equipment, also adding new flat screen TVs for custom- ers to watch while working out. Stormy Jameson is the office manager and Mi- chael Jameson is the gen- eral manager, the family said. "We were looking for something like this," Cris- ty said, noting the flexibil- ity of owning a business family members aren't tied to for hours at time. "They (the original owners) really set this up nicely," Cristy said. "We don't have to be here every second." Cristy said there are two things the new owners are looking forward to: a new energy-efficient light- ing system to be installed by electrician Tim Brosius, which will include motion sensors so lights will go off when the last custom- er leaves, and possible new equipment. Better Body Fitness op- erates with memberships. Members are given a key fob that can open the front door, allowing members to come to the facility when- ever their schedule allows, 24 hours a day. Daily pass- es are also available for selected portions of time, such as when a visitor is in town and wants to keep up a workout regimen. Michael Jameson said the family will continue to make the facility available to local student athletes free of charge from 3:30 to 5 p.m. under the supervi- sion of a lifting coach. "A lot of kids have tak- en advantage of that," Mi- chael said. Under the new man- agement, Better Body Fit- ness now includes walk- ing treadmills, elliptical machines and a climb- er separate from the run- ning treadmills. The for- mer ladies room has been converted into an area for Zumba and CrossFit training. A variety of lift- ing equipment remains in the rear of the facility, and the facility has a kick box- ing trainer and a dead lift station. Cristy Jameson said the family is simply tweak- ing a great system already put in place by the Lind- says and Walker. "Lovell's really lucky they did it when they did and how they did it," she said. "They did a really great job." iiiiiiiiiiii!iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii:Zii !iiiiiiiiiiiii!i!iSiiii ?  iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!iiiiii!!iiiiiiii!iiiiiiiiii!iiiiii  : "Better than Billings pricing everyday!"
