Downtown Fitness offers business professionals place to work out

With a new fitness center right down the street from many businesses, the courthouse, police station, among other facilities, it’s hard to come up with a good excuse not to work out. And while there’s usually a rush to get out of downtown Beaumont when 5 o’clock rolls around, there is now motivation to stick around.

“Everyone wants to work out … but everyone always complains about not having the time for it,” said Jason Stevens, GM of Downtown Fitness. “We created an atmosphere to give them the time.”
