Clayton Anderson Takes Over Fitness Facility

[Elbow Lake, MN] Prairie Ridge Healthcare in Elbow Lake is pleased to announce that Clayton Anderson, will be taking over the business previously known as “Prairie Ridge Fitness” in May. Other than a name change and bringing his wife Patsy in to help run the center, Anderson says he plans to operate the business pretty much unchanged.

“We’ll be in the same location with the same rates and same programming for now,” Anderson said. The only big difference people will notice is the name change to Anderson Fitness. Among the places they’ll notice the name change is on the automatic withdrawal of membership fees on bank statements.

Anderson has been the Fitness Center Coordinator for the past five years and has had an interest in running the business himself for a while now. “COVID was certainly a hard time for many businesses, fitness centers included,” he said. While COVID could have spelled the end of a local fitness center, Anderson says he believes strongly in the importance of having fitness opportunities available to our local community. “I’m happy that it has worked out so I can help keep these options available here in Elbow Lake,” Anderson added.

For the latest information and pricing, you can visit Anderson Fitness 24/7 on Facebook.
