Inspire Fitness to Open Spin and Yoga Studio in Highland Area

By Anne Michaels, SCLS, Southpace Properties Broker

With a mission to inspire Birmingham to get fit physically and mentally, Inspire Fitness, LLC is opening a new 3,000 SF studio on Highland Avenue to host Spinning® and yoga classes.

Inspire Fitness is a partnership between Stephen and Kelly Creel and Gabe Rios, three friends and cycling enthusiasts who live in Birmingham. The fitness entrepreneurs’ goal is to inspire people to get involved in fitness activities, and Southpace is happy to represent such an endeavor.

Highland Avenue is the ideal location for Inspire Fitness because it’s a neighborhood with an under-served fitness community and it’s also in the heart of Birmingham, making it easy for folks to stop in for an exercise class, while traveling to and from work.

“The primary mindset of the fitness industry today is to focus on the physical body, which is only part of the puzzle,” said Kelly Creel. “But we will focus not just on the body, but also on the mind. We want to get to know our guests on an individual basis, learn what causes any unhealthy habits and patterns and work to inspire and equip them to change that behavior.”

At Inspire Fitness, guests will most likely notice the absence of “instructors.” In their place are highly knowledgeable coaches who will guide 20 students through visualization, mantras and breathing during both yoga and cycling classes.

Inspire Fitness is set to open on the bottom floor of the Highland Towers Apartments in mid-October.
