Fourth Gym to Open in 15 Months for SICFIT
SICFIT is expanding its Arizona presence and opening another SICFIT gym at the Ice Den in Chandler, Arizona, this October. This will be the second SICFIT location to open in the state – and fourth nationally – for the expanding fitness brand.
The Ice Den Chandler is an 86,000-square-foot ice-skating and entertainment facility that houses two NHL-regulation sized skating rinks.
“This is a tremendous opportunity to partner with the Ice Den Chandler and offer SICFIT’s integrated approach to fitness for its athletes and nearby Chandler residents,” said Najla Kayyem, SICFIT’s CEO. “Our focus on helping youth and adults reach their individual health and fitness goals, rather than making them subscribe to a specific style, will resonate with those that regularly visit the popular East Valley destination.”
Nathan Atchison is SICFIT Chandler’s operator and will co-own the gym with Najla Kayyem and SICFIT’s vice president and creative director, Luke Kayyem.
SICFIT Chandler will be located in a 3,200-square-foot space inside the main entrance of Ice Den Chandler. Atchison and his team will offer SICFIT’s full line of life, fitness and sport classes, including dry-land training for youth and adult athletes that frequent the hockey and skating rink.
Atchison, a former multi-sport athlete, is eager to share the SICFIT philosophy with Chandler individuals and families as they look to improve health and wellness.
SICFIT gyms across the U.S. are designed to enhance the lives of their students through educated coaching, nutritional counseling, challenges, seminars, level testing and community events. SICFIT’s three levels of training and nutrition are the backbone of its exercise philosophy, simply described as life, fitness and sport. Its goals are to improve quality of life and help students become better than they were the day before.
