Higher Power Fitness in Hermiston is celebrating its new home with a six-week fitness challenge.

The fitness center is having a week-long “grand re-opening” at 2120 N. First St. during the week of Jan. 16, with a ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by the Greater Hermiston Area Chamber of Commerce Jan. 20 at noon.

The new space is 5,600 square feet, which makes it almost four times as large as the former 1,500-square-foot space that Higher Power Fitness began in two years ago. The extra space will be used to offer more programs and larger classes.

Higher Power Fitness offers workout classes, personal training, yoga and nutritional programs to help people lose “as much fat as they can in a healthful manner,” according to a news release from owner Cindee Henderson.

“I’m all about people changing their lives for the better,” she said. “Unfortunately, in the modern age there is an overload of information both good and bad available, so when people try to figure it out on their own, they are paralyzed by so many choices and fail even to take the first step. We are making it as easy and transparent as possible to take that first step. We take out all the guess work.”

The six-week Transformation Challenge runs through Feb. 25. According to the news release more than 50 “challengers” from Umatilla County and Morrow County plan to participate in the research-based program consisting of metabolic, cardio and strength training.

Henderson said the program “has been tested to the point that it will produce amazing results” in helping people trim weight and develop lasting healthy habits.

“This isn’t a quick fix,” she said. “We want to help people get their lives back.”

Weekly updates on the challengers’ journey will be chronicled on the Higher Power Fitness Facebook page or on the blog at www.higherpowerfitnessllc.com
