WICHITA — Bethany and Landon Langston are building a new facility for their Optimal Performance personal training business that will outperform their existing space in several ways.
The five-year-old business currently is in 3,000 square feet near 32nd Street North and Rock Road. The new facility will be in 12,000 square feet east of Central and Greenwich at 11444 E. Central.
The property is almost 1 1/2 acres.
“We’re actually only taking up not even half of it, really, so we have room to expand,” Bethany Langston says. “One thing that we really want to do is add a lap pool.”
They’d also like a therapy hot tub eventually.
Initially, the facility will have an area for equipment that clients can access 24 hours a day. The other half of the downstairs will be open for training.
“CrossFit is pretty big right now, and we incorporate a lot of that in our training … and so we use a lot of open space,” Bethany Langston says.
“Our main business is one-on-one training or small-group training,” says Landon Langston, who has been training for 10 years.
There will be several training areas within the new facility and outdoors as well.
“We’re going to have double the training space,” Bethany Langston says.
Upstairs, there’s a loft area with room for group classes, such as Pilates and yoga.
Outside, there will be basketball courts and an area for training in a sand pit.
The Langstons also are expanding their massage therapy rooms from two to five. The rooms will be sound proof.
“We want to create more of a relaxing atmosphere if that’s what people are coming in for,” Bethany Langston says.
