Orlando fitness group moves into Brandon

BRANDON — Orlando-based My House Fitness, a personalized gym and healthy living brand, plans to open its first Brandon studio Nov. 30 at 207 W Bloomingdale Ave.

It will be the fifth Florida location for the company that launched in 2010.

My House Fitness also is currently hiring personal trainers and a business development Specialist. The gym provides clients with a personal training experience with the goal of helping clients in an intimate, nonintimidating environment.

"You can get fit, make new friends and learn how to live better" said franchise owner Kyle Hammond, 38, a Brandon resident for the past six years. "It's all about the needs of the client. It's not your typical open gym. Everything you do is tied to a personal trainer."

Hammond said clients start by establishing personal fitness goals for new members and then devising a plan that avoids trends and relies more on the expertise of personal trainers. New fitness equipment that includes cable and squat machines as well as dumbbells fill the 1,500 square foot studio.

In addition to the personal attention, My House Fitness offers small and large group training, nutritional counseling, weight loss programs, golf fitness programs and virtual training.

"What makes us different from the larger fitness centers is the personalized attention and dedication we give all our clients," said Jen Wherrell, CEO and founder of My House Fitness. "We are looking to hire great people who love the fitness industry and take pride in building trust with our clients. We offer a positive place to work with potential for growth."
