Krossover Fitness offers unique blend

GEORGETOWN – Since November driving down State Street in Georgetown residents and visitors have driven past what was the Republican Party Headquarters only to see a transformation of the space. Ironically, body transformations are the business of Krossover Fitness and Salon.

Business owner Tammy Rockey Peters has taken her salon experience and added a new element, a 24-hour workout facility serving Brown County in Georgetown.

“It was convenience, we needed this in town and surrounded towns,” Peters said. “Otherwise, you’d have to travel 20-30 minutes way. We have people who drive an hour to work and an hour home so really it makes it easier for them.”

Peters said that she and her husband were in the group of people who live in the area but did not want the hassle of leaving town in order to workout. So they did what any entrepreneurial person would do, started their own workout facility.

“My husband has always worked out, he loves it,” Peters said. “He’s always wanted to own his own gym so it just worked out for us. It’s gone over well, it’s been super.”

The fitness center/salon overs patrons a unique experience where you can get your sweat on and your nails done at the same place. Peters said her husband chose all of the exercise equipment which includes Precor cardio equipment, free weights, strength training cables, power rack, ropes, kettle balls, bands, medicine balls and everything in between. Peters said the hopes are to add more equipment, which will include an outdoor area in the future.

Another selling point for Krossover is the month-to-month option with no cancellation fee. The gym membership is competitively priced for other gyms that feature 24-hour fitness, but offers the convenience of no travel for those want to stay close to Georgetown.

Peters said they chose the name Krossover to be different and to mix the salon and fitness center together. It is a unique blend and offers a service to the area unlike any other.

“We decided to do it with a K to be different as we are crossing over from one business to another,” Peters said. “The spelling kind of joined the two together to make it stand out.”

Both the fitness center and salon have plans of continued expansion. Currently Peters offers manicure and pedicure services, tanning and spray tans on top of the fitness center. She hopes to add more classes on the fitness side as well as expand equipment to meet the needs of the community. The first of the year is always a time when New Year’s resolutions begin to take hold and now those in Georgetown no longer have an excuse of no access to a 24-hour facility.

For those interested in a membership, they can visit Krossover Fitness + Salon online at krossoverfitness.com or visit the location at 506 E. State Street in Georgetown.
