Just one year after opening its doors in Lexington, Dynamic Health and Fitness is ready to expand.

Owners Matt and Nikki Mollohan and General Manager Jody Parks welcomed members of the Greater Lexington Chamber of Commerce on Thursday to help them celebrate the first anniversary of the fitness center and the future of the business.

“It’s been a great first year,” Matt Mollohan said.

Dynamic Health boasts about 1,700 members, and Parks recalled that the membership roll filled up much quicker than expected. He attributed to the fitness center’s popularity to its location in a fast-growing area of Lexington County and the fact that members can work out on their schedule at any time of the day.

“We serve a lot of law enforcement and medical personnel who work third shift since we are open 24 hours,” Parks said. “And we aren’t limited like a lot of 24-hour gyms. All of our services are available at all times.”

Dynamic Health is surrounded by new subdivisions, a new Lexington One school nearly ready to open and more. Looking ahead to what is coming to the area made the decision to locate there an easy one for the Mollohans and Parks.

“There is lots of growth here,” Parks said. “We wanted to be part of that infrastructure.”

Dynamic Health is bringing in more personal trainers in order to accommodate the new rush of members expected as people make New Year’s resolutions of getting healthy. Parks and the Mollohans also are planning for a 4,000-square-foot expansion to serve members better.

Dynamic Health is in a strip mall on Longs Pond Road and will be taking over the space currently occupied by Schooners Bar & Grill. Schooners owner Dave Flowers said he will build a freestanding restaurant on the empty lot next door. He hasn’t broken ground yet but said he plans to be open the new location in about a year.

Parks said one of Dynamic Health’s best qualities is its technologically advanced equipment. The expansion will allow the gym to bring in virtual spin class equipment in the next several months. Participants will be coached by an instructor shown on a large screen instead of in person.

The Dynamic Health model also features individualized regimens for each member.

“We figure out where they’re starting out,” Parks said.

The staff performs a fitness assessment for each person to steer them toward appropriate equipment or classes and helps members avoid doing too much too fast, which can lead to injuries.
