2 I The Lovell Chronicle I November 11, 2010 www.LovellChronicle.com Becky and Steve Hultgren are the new owners of Better Body Fitness. New owners plan to add to fitness center BY BRAD DEVEREAUX Fitness enthusiasts in Lovell may see a few slight changes in the town's only health club/workout facil- ity, as longtime Lovell res- idents have purchased the business. Steve and Becky Hult- gren are the new owners of Better Body Fitness after entering an agreement to purchase the business from previous owners Chad and Lindsay Lindsay in late Oc- tober. Current members of the Lovell fitness center won't notice many changes as the Hultgrens take over, but they do plan to open a small shop there in the near future. Steve Hultgren studied physical education in col- lege with a minor in busi- ness and said it has always been his dream to own a health club. When he heard Better Body Fitness was for sale, he talked it over with his wife and they made the deal happen. Hultgren said he isn't planning any changes to the equipment at the facili- ty yet, but he would eventu- ally like to convert the room in the back of the building to have punching bags and kick bags to provide a dif- ferent type of workout for members. Hultgren said he will be at the facility Monday through Thursday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., which will also be the hours of his store once it eventually opens. He encourages people and pro- spective members to come by during that time with any questions or comments. The new owners also plan on participating in the up- coming Holiday Mingle to introduce the community to their new business, Hult- gren said. Hultgren has been in charge of cleaning the Bet- ter Body Fitness for several years, and said he will con- tinue to clean the building as the new manager. Hultgren said the gym will continue to offer direct deposit payment options and continue to offer mem- bership plans through local companies with employee wellness plans. Steve and Becky said they like the business that the original owners built at Better Body, and they want to continue the business on the same path, while adding a few new features along the wLy. Theyplan to hold instructioxal courses such as spinningi aerobics and other workout programs be- ginning in the early 2011. Better Body Fitness will host a bench, lift and squat tournament, Hultgren said. The contest will possibly be held during Mustang Days and will be similar to the Strong Man Contest orga- nized by Lindsay in past years. Donald L.

Years later the couple divorced. In 1984, Gary married his second wife, Cece Da- vis of Wheatland, and they welcomed their daughter Jenny the same year. They were divorced in 1987 and Gary continued his profes- sional driving career of 45 years until his retirement in 2006 from Crete Carri- er Corporation. During this time he married his third wife, Connie Gibson, and they are currently separated. Gary took great pride in his professional and personal appearance. He was always dressed "to the nines" with fresh pressed pants and shirt, classic black vest, hat and boots. He always made the la- dies smile with his classic cowboy looks and old-time charm. But he had more than just the look. Until 1979, Gary and his family ran cattle on the Pryor Moun- tains, Crooked creek, War- ren flats and Burlington. From moving cattle horse- back to horsepower Gary had his hand in every part of the ranch. After his retirement in 2006, Gary began show- casing his artistic abili- ties with his amazing yard work and yard creations. 305 Great Western Ave- nue was a sight to see Ev- ery Halloween and Christ- mas.
