New 24-hour gym in Niles celebrates grand opening
NILES, Mich.—Two Niles natives have opened a 24 hour gym in downtown Niles, fulfilling the co-owners' life-long dreams.
Matt Mazingo always knew that he wanted to open up his own gym and after spending years serving in the military, he returned home to Niles to make that dream a reality.
“It’s our home town, why travel to another town to work out,” Mazingo said.
Mazingo and co-owner Stephanie Reno, who owns SLR Pilates, decided to team up and give locals a 24 hour, locally-owned and operated gym that they named Trap House 24 SLR at 127 East Main Street.
“We got the name Trap House 24 because working out becomes an addiction, a healthy addiction to make sure we’re taking care of our body every day,” Reno said.
The new gym exists in Reno’s old Pilates studio. Four-year-old SLR Pilates recently made a move just down the street to 219 East Main Street.
“We finished the renovations, moved the studio down the road, and started renovating here. We had started purchasing equipment for the past two years now, so it’s been a long time coming,” Reno said.
The gym officially opened to clients in November but on Thursday, the gym will be offering tours and prizes starting at 4:30 p.m. to celebrate its grand opening in conjunction with Niles’ Third Thursday event.
The gym offers free weights, circuit training, cardio equipment, personal training and tanning.
Discounts are available for students, first responders, police, active military and veterans and senior citizens.
Trap House 24 is located at 127 East Main Street in Niles. It is open 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
