Coop­ers­burg cou­ple buys what was town’s orig­i­nal post of­fice to open bou­tique fit­ness stu­dio

The Morning Call - - BUSINESS CYCLE -

Brielle and Matt Baker have pur­chased what was the orig­i­nal post of­fice in the bor­ough and plan to con­vert it to a bou­tique fit­ness stu­dio, which they will open early next year. The 3,200-square-foot brick build­ing at 551 E. Sta­tion Ave. had been a pe­di­atric ther­apy of­fice and a sign/de­cal/tro­phy com­pany. Jeff Barber of Le­high Fi­nan­cial Group LLC ar­ranged the fi­nanc­ing for the sale which closed July 9. The pur­chase price was not dis­closed.

The Bak­ers plan to con­vert the space to The Re­fin­ery Fit­ness, where they will of­fer high in­ten­sity work­out classes seven days a week. “Our of­fi­cial sched­ule of classes is to be de­ter­mined but we plan to of­fer mul­ti­ple classes through­out the day – early morn­ing, af­ter­noon and one or two dur­ing the evening,” said Brielle Baker, who like her hus­band, grew up play­ing mul­ti­ple sports and found group ex­er­cise to be the most mo­ti­vat­ing and ex­hil­a­rat­ing. “We won’t of­fer mem­ber­ships, but class passes, where peo­ple can buy pack­ages of five, 10 or 20 classes,” she said. Classes will be ei­ther 45 min­utes or up to 60 min­utes and taught by cer­ti­fied train­ers.

The Bak­ers are hop­ing to com­plete ren­o­va­tions by the end of the year or ear­lier and have a grand open­ing in early Jan­uary.
