Hubbell Realty Company Teams up with 7 Flags X-Press
West Des Moines, Iowa (April 21, 2008) – Hubbell Realty Company announced today a joint effort with locally-owned 7 Flags Health and Fitness to bring Iowa its first fitness center with an emphasis on exercise gaming. Using equipment developed by XRKade, exercise gaming provides an immersive, interactive environment in the gym. The facility is on track to open this fall. The 6,280-square foot facility at the new GreenWay Crossing community in West Des Moines will include equipment that allows members to work out while playing the popular Dance Dance Revolution game, a video kickboxing game, a video bicycling game and more. The system will allow players to play against each other and against competitors in other locations across the country. Traditional workout equipment will also be available for gym members. “The addition of the XRKade equipment turns fitness into a fun family activity. But don’t be fooled,” says Frank Santana, owner of 7 Flags. “This equipment is perfect for local business people looking to get in a 15 minute kickboxing session over lunch or after work.” “We are bringing in a full-time staff of personal trainers that can set up a routine for you with the specialized, easy-to-use equipment,” says Marv Jones, manager of the new location and a 3-time National Fitness Director of the Year finalist. “We will even have a nutrition shop in the facility where your trainer can recommend the best supplements tailored for you and your goals.” Members will be treated to executive-style locker rooms with full-length lockers and showers in the 24-hour facility. They will also have full access to the six other 7 Flags X-Press locations throughout the metro, as well as limited access to the main location in Clive. “You can’t beat this location. We will be able to serve local residents in the GreenWay Crossing community and all workers in the area,” says Kelly Sharp, vice president of retail operations at Hubbell Realty Company, noting that memberships are available now with pre-opening incentives.
