An Anytime Fitness gym is opening at 1128 Grand Calliou Road in Houma in April.
The gym will have a virtual training area where members will be able to train with an online coach and decide what workout they will be doing. This addresses how some people can’t go to the gym at the times classes are being held and provides them a fitness class at their convenience.
Siblings Jennifer and Andrew Perkins are the owners of Anytime Fitness.
“We really wanted to do something that would help the community and that it would bring wellness to the community,” Jennifer Perkins said.
The Perkins are running other gyms in Luling and Raceland.
Andrew Perkins worked as a training manager until partnering with his sister a little over a year ago when they opened the Anytime Fitness located in Raceland.
The reason they decided to come to Houma was because they had customers in Raceland from the Bayou Blue area.
“They (customers) were mentioning how they didn’t really have any options in east Houma,” Andrew Perkins said. “They didn’t have an option that allowed them to use multiple locations on this side of Houma, so we came out here, checked out the area and really liked it. So we thought that it deserved another gym.”
