A popular Falls Township gymnasium has expanded and moved to a new location.

Extreme Fitness Beast Factory Gym recently moved from Fallsington to Levittown. The gym opened in a larger location at 724 New Falls Road.

The gym was built in a 12,000 square foot portion of the mall that was formerly part of Pete’s Liquidators, which is downsizing. Decades ago, the location was that of Levittown’s first grocery store.

Husband and wife owners Martin McLoughlin and Linda Stout have grown the gym from a space in their Levittown home to increasingly larger locations. They anticipate the new location to be their fifth and final location.

The decision to expand their business came after considering the boost provided by virtual classes during the pandemic.

McLoughlin said his goal in the six-month renovation project that led to the opening was to create “the look of a gym that no one had ever seen.”

Gym owners worked with Promaxima, a manufacturer of bespoke fitness equipment, to create the layout of the approximately two dozen workout spaces, each with a bench, weights, stability ball and more. , said McLoughlin.

“They can do it all from their own rack,” he said. “We don’t want people to feel like they don’t have access to the equipment.”

The new space has allowed the couple who own Extreme Fitness to add new programs, member benefits and better serve customers, they said.

Gym owners have invested in state-of-the-art wireless speakers and microphones that enhance the experience of in-person and virtual users.

McLoughlin said his overall goal “is to make everyone feel like they’re in a private gym.”

Members of the Falls Township Board of Supervisors, Township Superintendent Matthew Takita, Falls Township Police Chief Nelson Whitney and Bucks County Commissioner Chairman Bob Harvie took part in the ceremony. inauguration and inauguration.

“We are proud to support Marty and Linda in this new venture,” said Falls Township Supervisors Chairman Jeff Dence. “Small businesses like theirs are the fabric of our community. We wish them many years of continued success.

McLoughlin and Stout are known in the community not only for their business, but also for their contribution to the community. They have been big supporters of the Falls Township Police Department in annual 5K races to raise funds.
