After a hiatus finishing up the new facility at 1905 Judson, Smallville Crossfit opens today for classes.
“Our first classes will be held here Monday,” owner Aaron Watts said on Nov. 29. His wife, Lindsey is his partner in the fitness business.
The reconfigured facility, once Fort Scott Lumber, is just off West 19th Street in the southern part of the city. They were formerly in a downtown location but outgrew the space.
Smallville Crossfit has 130 members, Aaron said.
They now have about 60 percent more space to accommodate those members, Aaron said.
“We now have three large heated rooms for classes, as opposed to two large and an auxiliary room,” he said.
Smallville Crossfit provides regular Crossfit classes, a “sweat class” and a pre-teen class for kids eight to 12 years old, Aaron said.
The Watts are going to add some new classes, a dance fitness class and strength and conditioning classes, in the future.
“We are going to get through a couple of months to determine new equipment that might be needed,” Aaron said.
New showers and bathrooms have been added to the building and Aaron was putting the mat floor down on Friday, while Lindsey was cleaning the walls in one of the new classrooms, with a little help from family and friends.
Smallville Crossfit classes are Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 5 a.m., 6 a.m., 7:15 a.m., 8 a.m. 11:15 a.m., the 4 p.m. pre-teen class to the last class at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday classes are at 5 a.m., 6 a.m., 11:15 a.m., 4 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.
Saturday there is an open gym which starts at 9 a.m.

A grand opening at the new facility will be after the first of the year.
