• Ribbon Cutting for Shapes Fitness for Women - Brandon

    Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce
    Celebrates Remodeling of
    Shapes Fitness for Women-Brandon
    On September 14, 2019, Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce (GRCC) members and many gym-goers gathered to celebrate the remodeling reveal of Shapes Fitness for Women-Brandon. The female-focused fitness center invited vendors in to enhance their celebration and also decorated the newly remodeled space with an explosion of pink. Several tenured employees, including Shapes Fitness for Women-Brandon owner, Ann Gilbert, greeted all who joined them on this special day.   
    Shapes has been involved in women's fitness for nearly 30 years. Their first location opened in 1990 and they have been helping women achieve their fitness goals ever since. The new remodel of the Brandon location features an open layout, new equipment, and a redesigned childcare center - Kids Zone. The Kids Zone area is equipped with video monitoring so you can rest assured your children are safe and having a blast while you enjoy your workout. During the event, demonstrations were provided. One of the most unique demos was on their paddle-board simulation equipment. This prepares participants for paddle-boarding on the open water or just allows them to enjoy the same workout as they would if they were on the open water. It is a workout that engages the full body and can increase in intensity by inflating the device you stand on.  
    The celebratory ribbon was cut and a proclamation was then delivered by Honorary Mayor of Riverview, Bill Andrew – Tessera of Brandon. He donned a top hat with signature Shapes pink accents and recognized September 14, 2019 to be Shapes Fitness for Women-Brandon Day!
