LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) – Movement Academy is officially opening on Jan. 5th. After ringing in the New Year, many people in Lincoln might be hitting the gym, and now, people have a place in the Haymarket to accomplish that goal.
Owner Rob Kuhlman said the new gym on Canopy St. is helping to fill a void.
“One day I’m just driving around and I notice all these vacant spaces and there’s no gym in an actual community where people live here; people work here,” said Kuhlman. “I just couldn’t believe it.”
Kuhlman grew up in Seward. His fitness journey has taken him to school in Florida and to New York, where he worked as a personal trainer.
“We have our squat racks, our platforms; the dumbells are on the other side, cardio equipment is upstairs and group fitness is downstairs,” said Kuhlman.
The gym is hosting a grand opening with prizes and a DJ. Movement Academy was supposed to open sooner, but the pandemic pushed the date back. Kuhlman said he hopes people will still be motivated to come to the gym.
“I’m hearing the term the ‘pandemic 15,’ so I’m hoping that coupled with New Years’ gets people interested in coming back to the gym.”
And in a personal touch to the gym, Kuhlman’s dad handmade the front desk.
“My goal is just to become a part of the Haymarket community,” said Kuhlman. “I also live here now and it’s really nice to get to know everybody here.”
Movement Academy is hosting a grand opening on Tuesday from 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., which includes prizes and a D.J.
