Festivities include athletic competitions, prizes, raffle and, of course, a workout

HENDERSON, Nev. – Colosseum Training Center, 3306 St. Rose Parkway, Suite 110, will host a grand opening event from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26.

Prior to the opening of the facility, founder Boris Sapone, 27, and his team of trainers trained group classes, provided one-on-one training and conducted personalized workouts for businesses in Henderson’s parks under the name of GV Fit Camp. Sapone, who serves as the company’s owner and lead coach, began GV Fit Camp in 2009.

“This facility has been a long time coming, but the wait was worth it,” Sapone said. “It looks great, and we now have the capacity to train more people, as the elements will no longer be a factor.”

From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. during the grand opening, attendees will have the chance to win a free one-month membership, prizes and other giveaways through  raffles and participation in  small workout challenges. During the challenges, guests will use various equipment to compete with one another for the best time and best performance. All coaches will be present, as well as local doctors who are affiliated with Colosseum.

In addition to the one-month membership, raffle prizes will include T-shirts and other Colosseum Training Center gear.

At 4 p.m., Colosseum will host a free introductory Fit Camp class for all in attendance.

Fit Camp is a high intensity group class that focuses on full-body movements and teamwork/group workouts. (This version of boot camp has been popular in Henderson for the last four years.)

Also during the grand opening, Colosseum will offer special discounts on memberships, including a lifetime membership. An assortment of healthy foods and snacks will be available as well.

In addition to a fully stocked gym area, Colosseum Training Center’s new facility will offer Fit Camp classes, CrossFit Veni Vidi Vici for adults and kids, Kids Fit Camp, Forza, Sculpt, Female Fit, Power Hour,  Kids Fitness, Stroller Camp, Kids Zombie RoundUp, Legionnaire Training, Mobility and Stretching, CTC Gladiator, Young Athletics, Teens Lifting Club and Training Camp.
