Group Fitness With An Individuality At The Exchange

By Elisha Neubauer

Maggie and Cale Owen saw a need in Saint Augustine for a specific fitness environment and they sought to fill it themselves. Tired of searching for a facility that was safe, effective, community-centric, and fun; they shifted gears and created exactly what they had been looking for.

"Our goal was to create a gym that focused on macro and micro needs of the community," Maggie & Cale said.

The Owens launched The Exchange, a fitness center located on Commerce Lake Drive. The business focuses on group training. The Owens' knew they wanted this to be the focus as it plays into their conjunctive beliefs.

"We believe that the power of a vibrant community will lift people up, push them past their self-imposed limitations, and provide an encouraging atmosphere," they said.

While the facility operates with a group training method, they don't want anyone to feel as if they've fallen between the cracks. Unlike a large scale corporate gym, members are more than just a number, they're individuals.

"We make sure each person who walks through our door is treated individually based on their needs, desire, previous experience, injury history, and more," the couple said.

The Owens aimed to provide a fun, engaging, non-judgmental, hard-working facility. However, they knew education was vital to the success of the business.

"The fitness world is inundated with alternative facts that make it hard to tell the difference between what's real and what's not," they said. "Our staff are professionals who have spent their lives dedicated to helping people live a healthy, happy, and long life."

They believe their instructors are the perfect partners to help people avoid pitfalls and get results faster. The coaches employed at The Exchange genuinely care about each member and strive to create a routine which benefits their individual goals and needs.

Whether you're looking to be ready for swimsuit season, want to improve your athletic ability, or you're just interested in gaining a little more self-confidence, The Exchange has the tools and the staff needed to accomplish all of your physical fitness goals.
