SEVENPerformance, which offers physical assessment and fitness training, is celebrating its grand opening Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Owners Sydney Metheny and Dr. Kyle West said they are offering demonstrations, raffle drawings, refreshments and an opportunity to meet the trainers throughout the day. SEVENPerformance is located in the Seneca Mall at 108 Third St., Suite 8 in Elkins. Metheny, above, demonstrates a TRX suspension trainer.
Metheny said the difference between SEVENPerformance and other fitness centers is their clients are not jumping from one piece of equipment to another.
"We offer TRX suspension training, TRX Rip training and muscle activation technique," Metheny said. "The TRX suspension training uses the participant's body weight as a machine."
She said the classes the center offers have no more than six participants so they can give individualized attention.
"We offer services in helping not only with exercise, but techniques to decrease the risk of injuries," Metheny said. "Our assistance can be sports specific or just getting someone up and moving and getting their muscles functioning properly."
Metheny said a full body workout in the center only requires four movements.
Along with the TRX training, the group will offer Olympic style weightlifting.
SEVENPerformance will be open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The facility does not have memberships, but offers classes for $8. The price for class is $7 for those holding a YMCA or D&E fitness membership.
SEVENPerformance promotes a healthy lifestyle with a minimalistic workout.
"We hope to be an enhancement," Metheny said. "We are working in collaboration with the (Elkins-Randolph County) YMCA to offer summer camps."
West said anyone can benefit from using the TRX trainers, including young, old, larger or smaller people.
West is a doctor of physical therapy, while Metheny is certified in fitness and nutrition, and aspiring to become a dentist.
