Owensboro will soon be home to a 90,000 square foot health and fitness club that promises to be unlike anything the the city has ever seen before. Over the last few weeks, Owensboro Athletic Club, which currently resides on Frederica Street in Owensboro in the former Big Lots location, has been teasing a game-changing announcement. We know the new state-of-the-art center will be called Club One Fitness and we've already been treated to a rendering of what the outside of the building will look like. Now, we know even more about it.

Shane Leach, the General Manager of OAC, says Club One will be a multi-level facility that will eclipse the current facility. The new location will house a larger cardio section, larger weight room and a larger HIIT area.

When Owensboro Athletic Club morphs into Club One FItness, it will feature twice the equipment and will include some of the newest cardio and strength equipment available on the market.

We're excited to share that Club One will also feature an indoor pool. The current plans for that pool call for it to be 75-feet long with three lap lanes. However, owner Dustin Edge says that more lanes could be added if the there is ample demand for expansion.

The popular Edge Body Boot Camp, which currently sits adjacent to OAC, will be moving to Club One as well. Other "like-minded" businesses will be joining also. Many more services and amenities will be announced as the facility gets closer to construction. And, Dustin says that, over the next several months, there will be public surveys to help pinpoint what exactly those will be.

OAC plans to break ground on the massive new health and fitness center in May or June of this year "if everything goes as planned." The location has not yet been announced. That said, we do know Club One will not be on Hwy 54. However, there are plans for a second, smaller location on 54 after the first club is built and operational.

And, breaking news today, Club One wants to explore the possibility of and need for indoor courts. Shane Leach says they will look to the community for input and ideas in the coming months and urges you to stay tuned to Facebook for your chance to chime in.
