On Sunday, October 24th, join the Nazareth Area Chamber of Commerce, a proud partner of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, as they celebrate the Grand Opening of Nazareth Strength & Fitness’ new location with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony!

Partners Kris Hicks, Kerianne Hicks, Joe Fortunato, and Dani Fortunato opened their business at a different location in May 2020. Due to the pandemic, it officially opened its doors on June 26th, 2020. At the end of September 2021, they moved into this new location and opened their doors again. Nazareth Strength & Fitness is a one-stop shop for all things fitness related. They offer a variety of services, such as: membership access to their fitness facility, trainer guided adult fitness classes, one to one personal training, and more!

The event will kick off at 9 AM and the festivities will continue until 1 PM. The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will take place at 11:45 AM. “Whether a business is relocating, opening for the first time, or having an anniversary, we are always excited to shine the spotlight on them with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony,” commented Lauren Bertucci, Manager of Affiliated Chambers for the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce. “It’s a chance for them to showcase everything that they have to offer to the community, and it is such an honor to be a part of their celebration. We hope to see you on Sunday, October 24th!” During the festivities, Nazareth Strength & Fitness will be hosting a Small Business Showcase. With the holidays right around the corner, and small businesses taking a hit in the last year, they want to encourage people to “shop small” and support local this holiday season. Don’t miss the chance to shop, see the new space, and welcome the Nazareth Strength & Fitness team to the community!

Partners of Nazareth Strength & Fitness, Kris Hicks, Kerianne Hicks, Joe Fortunato, and Dani Fortunato, said, “Here at Nazareth Strength & Fitness, we believe that the community supports you, when you support the community. The Nazareth Area has some great small businesses, and we are excited to be a part of it. We hope to be an asset to Lower Nazareth Township for years to come.”

Mike Woodland, Chair of the Nazareth Area Chamber Board, commented, “Nazareth Strength & Fitness provides a wonderful solution for a variety of strength and conditioning needs. This family owned and operated business is a great addition to the Nazareth community, and we’re always thrilled when we have businesses choosing to open their doors and bring job opportunities to the area. Please join us in welcoming them and celebrating their opening.”
