Area Developers and long time franchisee team, Erik and Wendy Skaalerud and Trent and Paig Peaker are expanding the Denver territory with the Stapleton location, which marks their 14th studio in Colorado.
"The concept sold itself! After taking our first class and meeting the corporate team, we not only wanted one studio but an entire region," said Wendy Skaalerud, one of the four co-owners of the new studio. "The all inclusive nature of the science based work out spoke to the desire we had to positively impact an entire community. We were sold on the integrity of the founding team behind the franchise."
After becoming members at their local Orangetheory Fitness, Rich and Diane Nipert believed so strongly in the concept that they decided to develop their own studios. The duo brings an extensive background in sales, marketing and business management from IBM and a variety of other business ventures. The Union Station studio marks their second location in the Denver market, with their first located in Denver Highlands.

The 60-minute, five zone heart-rate monitored interval training concept has helped tens of thousands of members lose weight, get toned and meet their overall fitness goals in a short amount of time.
