Fox Fitness to open on the west side

UPDATED — Jake Fox has been a personal trainer and Brazilian jujitsu instructor for a long time, and now he’s ready to open his own place.

Fox and his wife, Kimberly, are opening Fox Fitness next month at 7330 W. 33rd St. North in the Ridgeport Business Center.

The business isn’t a gym. It will be strictly for personal and small-group training.

“The personal training has taken off really over the last two years,” Fox says.

He describes Brazilian jujitsu as a system of grappling to overpower a stronger opponent. Fox says a person might learn it as a sport or for self-defense.

“It can be really … what the person wants,” he says. “That’s what’s awesome about it.”

Brent Stewart of KW Commercial and Dan Unruh of InSite Real Estate Group handled the deal.

Look for Fox Fitness to open in early June.
