A lot of personal training facilities have come and gone, even just in the three years GoTimeTraining has been open.

Owners Shannon Dykman and Kalene Smith have already expanded their 3,100-square-foot east side facility once, and they say they’re further showing their commitment by building a new 11,000-square foot complex.

“That’s really one of the big things we’re excited about,” Dykman says. “We’re invested in buying land, buying a building. We’re going to be around a long time.”

The new GoTime will be a block west of 28th and Greenwich. The site doesn’t have an address yet.

“It’s really just in our back yard,” Dykman says of the existing facility, which is at 11110 E. 26th St. North. “You can see it from our back door.”

He says the new place will back up to the east side of the Stryker Soccer Complex.

“So we can have fun with clients outdoors.”

More room inside the facility is what’s most important, though.

“We’ll be nearly tripling our training space,” Dykman says.

He says all training sessions, including personal, small group and boot camps, are nearly full.

“It’ll allow us to have more of them going,” he says. “We could handle multiple groups in peak hours where we see the biggest demand.”

Dykman says there will be more comfortable locker rooms with more showers, too.

“It’ll just allow us to scale much larger.”

In addition to Dykman and Smith, GoTime has six employees.

“We do expect to over time be growing our team,” Dykman says.

He says the business also teaches personal training instructors as well.

Dykman says he and Smith have a different strategy with GoTime than some personal training centers.

He says it’s “our ability to coach people on nutrition.”

“Typically, people will come to us who’ve tried other gyms.”

Construction will start in July, and the new space will be ready in January.

Craig Simon of Landmark Commercial Real Estate and Dan Unruh of InSite Real Estate Group handled the deal.

Studium Architecture Build is the architect on the project, and Graycon Building Group is the contractor.

Look for more information on the new facility closer to the time it opens early next year.
