Guts Personal Training recently made its debut in Collinsville.
Owners James and Mackenzie Stanley held a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Collinsville Chamber of Commerce last month.
“I want to say congratulations to being a part of our community, ” Collinsville Chamber Breann Audet told the Stanleys at the event. “We wish nothing but fruition and success for you guys. ”
Fortitude, which opened at 1221 W. Broadway St . in early February, provided the Stanleys, who live in Owasso, an opportunity to set up shop in an area close to their hometown community.
“It just seemed like a God thing, ” James said. “It was just perfect size, perfect location, so we pulled the trigger. ”
Mackenzie added, “This place actually became open, and we were just like, ‘This is what needs to happen. ’”
The couple offers one-on-one fitness training and customized nutrition guidance for local residents looking to take their health and wellness to a new level.
