Joe Romeo and Tim Forrest started out in the fitness industry as personal trainers many years ago, and the two friends continue to help people get fit.

In 2013, Romeo, general manager, and Forrest, president & founder, opened Zone Fitness Club in Trinity, and now they are opening a second location in Carrollwood.

Opening in mid to late December, Zone Fitness Club is a 16,000-square-foot facility that offers state-of-the-art cardio and strength equipment, personal and group training with certified trainers, and MYZONE heart rate programming.

"We're one of the very few clubs that utilizes MYZONE," Forrest said.

The special heart rate belt monitors workout intensity, tracks exercise patterns, and monitors activity outside of the gym as well. Forrest said that more than 50 percent of the members at the Trinity location wear the heart rate belt, and that it's great for people of all fitness levels.

"We have a solution base where we have heart rate-based group training which allows people to get really good results and make it affordable," Forrest said.

Zone Fitness Club also offers youth programming for 12 and older, and a corporate wellness program. Romeo and Forrest said they want to help companies promote a healthier workforce.

Zone Fitness Club is located at 4802 Gunn Highway, Suite 142. Pre-grand opening specials are currently being offered. For more information, call 813-515-4181, or visit zonefitnessclub.com.
