Spotlight Business of the Week for Monday, December 11, 2017 - The Sweat Shop

The Sweat Shop is Carterville Chamber Spotlight Business of the Week!

Paul and Kristen Gentry are the owners of The Sweat Shop Fitness Center. After spending many years driving out of town to work out, and trying to fit his workout into scheduled hours, Paul decided that Carterville needed a gym that could meet his own needs and hopefully the needs of many others at the same time. Paul and Kristen grew up in Carterville and had a heart for bringing business back downtown. As a child, Paul’s parents owned a small painting business downtown with an extra room on the side called the Sweat Shop; his sisters taught aerobics there. With this idea in mind, and after a lot of research and encouragement from other small gyms in Southern Illinois, The Sweat Shop opened on August 24, 2014. The Sweat Shop is now a full service 24/7 gym with plenty of equipment, a variety of classes, including Spinning, personal training, tanning and aquamassage, and even offers LHW Meal Prep service. 

Please call, stop by, or send a message on Facebook for all of their rates. You can also find class times and office hours on the Facebook page "The Sweat Shop Fitness Center".
