Eye on Business: Schwerk IT!


Are you looking to get back into a gym, missing your Zumba or Yoga classes? Kassy Schwerk was feeling the same way so she took her passion for fitness, years of experience and love of people and opened her own gym. She invites everyone to join her! Her background is in early childhood education and she has been a stay-at-home mom. She understands the need to have a place to exercise, focus on yourself and socialize with others.

“I worked for a local fitness center for five years. I loved what I did. I mentored and coached many members. I love connecting with people and helping them reach their goals,” said Ms. Schwerk, “I decided it was time to open my own fitness center.” Members can join at the rate of $100 a month which includes any class that is offered. There is a flexible payment plan option. Drop-in clients are encouraged to sign up for classes on the business Instagram page, shwerkit. Classes are available on that page too. The fitness center is open from 5 AM to 6 PM through the week and on Saturdays. SchwerkIT Fitness Center is located in the southside of the Wealth Management building on Mall Boulevard across from the main entrance to the Chautauqua Mall.

Schwerk Hard, Dream Big is just one of the encouraging quotes on the Instagram page and sprinkled through the two workout rooms. From treadmills to weights and a large area with thick mats for a variety of classes; one can find their path to better health and wellness. “I can offer different classes because I rent the space to other fitness and yoga instructors. We also offer private time for small groups,” she added, “membership is growing slow and steady. I am a personal trainer so I can offer one-on-one instruction too. I want to make my gym their gym.”

If it’s time for you to get back to your pre-Covid workouts or to commit yourself to work offvyour “quarantine 15”, give SchwerkIT! a try.
