New owners and new name for ProCare Fitness

ProCare Fitness will be under new ownership and have a new name beginning Oct. 1.

Ray and Angela Ross, owners of Gorilla House Gym in Altoona, will be the new owners of ProCare, according to a letter to members from Jim Foreman, ProCare president.

The Altoona ProCare Fitness name will be changed to Gorilla House Gym.

“This is an exciting opportunity for Ray and Angela, and they are eager to expand the ability to offer their capabilities in a larger capacity with additional programming to our community,” Foreman said in the letter. “Ray and Angela will continue to honor all existing membership agreements and will make the transition in ownership as smooth as possible. Although change is hard, we know this will strengthen and build the club to its fullest potential.” A note from the Rosses is included in Foreman’s letter.

“First and foremost, Ray and I want to say thank you for the opportunity to bring you the highest quality programming, instruction, facilities and equipment in our area. We know you will soon appreciate the positive impact our work provides to each of your lives as much as we appreciate your business. We really do feel that Gorilla House Gym cannot be beat. … You will continue to receive all the services you are accustomed to with Pro Care Fitness, a clean gym, quality equipment, operational hours, 2B Fit programs, tennis, yoga, group exercise and personal training,” Angela Ross wrote.

The Rosses will be adding additional group exercise classes to the schedule and bringing in trainers so there will be more opportunities for personal training.

Members are encouraged to check for updates, Ross wrote.
