Body by Boris Rebrands as B3 Gym and Opens New, Larger Facility

Body by Boris, a local gym with CrossFit, Bootcamp, and Personal Training, has changed its name to B3 Gym and is hosting a grand opening to celebrate their new facility. The event will be held on Friday, August 19, 2016 from 5 to 8 p.m. at 2134 NW 6th Street, Gainesville, FL, 32609. The event is free and open to the public.

The grand opening will showcase the company’s new look and the gym’s new location, which has been completely renovated and is almost double the space of their previous location. There will be a short ribbon cutting ceremony and food and beverages will be provided.

Body by Boris was founded in 2009 by Chris Markefka, whose goal in life is to help put one million people on the road to a healthy lifestyle. Body by Boris started as an outdoor, bootcamp-style fitness class, but Marhefka quickly realized he needed indoor space to meet the growing class’s needs. Steadily increasing membership has seen the gym outgrow several locations. In 2015 the gym was CrossFit certified and plans were made to expand into an even larger, state-of-the-art facility. Along with the physical upgrades came a new look and a new name: B3 Gym.

“It was clear that it was time for an update to our space and our brand, and we are thrilled to present the new B3 Gym,” Markefka said. “Our clients can expect brand new, state-of-the-art equipment and technology integration to go along with the passionate coaching and amazing community that has made B3 one of the best gyms in town.”

Although there are many fitness options in Gainesville, the new B3 Gym now offers their clients the best equipment and modern technologies to get the most out of their workouts.
“We can’t wait for our members and the rest of the Gainesville community to see what the new B3 has to offer at our August 19th Grand Opening!”, Markefka added.
