Durham's Core Club Opens New Gym

The popular exercise facility opened a newly renovated 4,000 square foot gym on Monday.


Nearly a year to the day that she opened an exercise club in Durham, Core Club owner Cheryl Salva is expanding the business.

The newly renamed at 350 Main Street opened Monday with the addition of a newly renovated 4,000 square foot, full facility gym.

"The concept works," Salva says. "It's made my clients and people in town very happy because they wanted something like this in town."

The gym, which will be open daily from 4 a.m. to 12 a.m., is the perfect compliment to the Group X training that has been offered for the past year at Core Club, Salva adds.

The gym is wall-to-wall with weights and exercise machines, has flat-screen televisions and offers men's and women's lockerooms.

"We're just giving different people that have, whether it's weight issues or physical limitations, more opportunity and choices to get healthy."

Salva says she hadn't planned to expand so soon, but was offered the space when Alana Adams' Window Treatments and Area Rugs moved next door to . Always the entrepreneur, Salva jumped at the opportunity.

"I look at where I've come in a year and I feel that anything is possible and that one person can make a difference," says Salva outside of the gym where a sign over the new space highlights Core Club & Gym's successful Biggest Loser Challenge, a program that has helped locals drop a combined 610 pounds.

The gym's grand opening will be held from 4-6 p.m. on April 19 and includes a tour of the new facility, free giveaways and hors' douvres. Specials are being offered all this week as well.

"Come on in and check it out and see what all the buzz is about."
