ACAC launches satellite

cover-acacNearly three years after opening a full-scale fitness center in downtown Charlottesville to join its 64,000 square-foot flagship location at Albemarle Square Shopping Center, ACAC is expanding again with the opening of a smaller Crozet gym in the Old Trail Development. At a preview on Thursday October 8, according to ACAC VP of development Chris Craytor, approximately 300 people showed up to check out the 8,500 square-foot space located under Old Trail's clock tower.

While anyone who is already an ACAC member will have access to the new Crozet facility, those who wish to join only the satellite location can do so for $49 per month– a bargain, compared to the approximately $80 ACAC charges for use of all its facilities. The Crozet location will have cardio and weight machines, free weights and group exercise classes.

Back in 2006, ACAC founder Phil Wendel shared his vision for the future of his health club empire, which already reaches into childcare, physical therapy, spa services and education in addition to standard fitness offerings. The Crozet location was in the works back then, and Craytor nows says the next ACAC offering will likely be a club in Lynchburg that had been initially been planned to open in 2007. "That one's underway," he says.

The official opening for the Crozet ACAC is October 26
