Stan Petty, owner
Because fitness has
been a part of Stanís life,
considers himself very
fortunate to have a business which
is his passion. Fitness roots extend from physical work
on the farm, high school, college athletics, coaching and teaching.
Stan graduated from
Illinois State University with a B.S. and M.S. in physical education. During
his college years, he competed four years in football and track and field. He
was also inducted into the Illinois State University Hall of Fame.
Before moving to Terre Haute to
open his fitness center in 1978, he was the head track coach, assistant varsity
football coach, and taught physical education at Bloomington High School,
Bloomington, Illinois for 12 years.
Stan draws on these experiences, and more than 32 years of owning and operating
his fitness center center, to motivate and train his members to achieve their
fitness goals. Even in a transient society Stan has members that have
trained with him as long as he has been in business. Growing membership
through success and safety of his members is Stan's goal.

rarely misses a daily workout, alternating strength training with cardiovascular
training. Even on vacation, Stan's first priority is to locate a place to
