A California fitness destination is now sporting a new name and ownership.

Amy and Heath Higgins bought Extreme Fitness, located at 883 E. Buchanan Street, earlier this year. The gym has been renamed and is now called Reset Health and Fitness.

The Higgins' decided on the name because they said they believe every day is a new day. It doesn't matter what happened the day before — you can always reset.

With the change in ownership come some changes to the facility. The owners' goals are to make it a welcoming environment where individuals can come and begin or maintain their health and fitness journey.

On Saturday, the gym hosted a preview of its new group fitness classes, as well as samples of protein shakes and smoothies from Grind that will occasionally be available for purchase. The same day, a commercial was shot that will appear on Co-Mo Connect.

Reset offers something for everyone, Amy Higgins said. It has free weights as well as weight machines; a wide variety of cardio machines; an indoor track; the new group fitness classes, which will be taught by Andrea Knipp and Jamie Pearson; and a resistance room where the machines don't have any extra weight — a great feature for senior citizens and those who have sustained an injury or have had surgery and are making their way back into a fitness routine, Higgins said.

For those who prefer to work out before the work day, the facility offers locker rooms with showers. It also has some options for children who may come along for a gym visit, Higgins said. The gym features a children's room, where school-aged children can hang out, watch television, do homework and read while their parents are working out. Later this summer, the Higgins' daughter, Trinity, a cheerleader at the University of Missouri, will teach tumbling and cheer classes.

Though the gym offers quite a bit already, Higgins said more updates are on the horizon throughout the next few months. Some new equipment is on its way: two new treadmills, a stair climber, a Jacobs Ladder machine and two rowing machines.

The gym is open 24 hours a day and has a secure, coded entry, Higgins said. Each member is given a code that allows them to come in at their convenience. As far as monthly memberships go, a single membership is $38, a couple membership is $62, a family membership is $75 dollars, and memberships for high school through college-aged students and senior citizens are $28.

"We just want this to be a place that people want to be," Higgins said. "We're just really excited to have purchased this and be able to have this in our community. There are so many great businesses here, and we're excited and happy to be a part of that."
