Jane's Gym had a ribbon-cutting ceremony sponsored by Olive Branch Chamber of Commerce.

Jane’s Gym celebrated its grand re-opening Friday morning with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and reception.

Under new ownership, this women’s-only fitness facility recently opened their doors again with updated equipment, renovations and new features.

This Olive Branch gym was purchased by Paige Anderson and her husband Mike, along with Summer Hungate in June. The pair got to work adding new features to the facility, including a new cycling studio complete with disco lights and speakers for music.

Anderson said the gym is a place for women to exercise without the pressure of a traditional gym.

“This gym is women’s only, so it really creates a community for women to come and feel safe while they exercise,” Anderson said.

Anderson and Hungate worked as instructors at Jane’s Gym for years together before deciding to purchase it.

“Where I’m weak, she’s strong and where I’m strong, she’s weak,” Anderson said. “We work together really well.”

The two-story facility includes a cardio section with treadmills and ellipticals, tanning beds, yoga studios and space to work with personal trainers. The gym even provides childcare for members with kids. 24/7 access to all of these features is included in the membership.

“We’re so excited about today,” Anderson said. “Seeing it all come to fruition is just amazing.”
