A popular Falls Township gym has expanded and moved to a new location.
Extreme Fitness Beast Factory Gym recently moved from Fallsington to Levittown. The gym opened in a larger location at 8724 New Falls Road.
The gym was built out in 12,000 square foot part of the shopping center that was previously part of Pete’s Liquidators, which downsized. Decades ago, the location was that of Levittown’s first grocery store.
Husband-and-wife owners Martin McLoughlin and Linda Stout have grown the gym from a space in their Levittown home to progressively larger locations. They plan for the new location to be its fifth and final spot.
The move to expand their business came after looking at the boost provided by virtual classes during the pandemic.
McLoughlin said his goal in the six-month renovation project that led up to the opening was to create “the look of a gym that no one had ever seen.”
The gym owners worked with Promaxima, a built-to-order fitness equipment manufacturer, to create the layout for the roughly two dozen workout spaces, each with bench, weights, stability ball and more, McLoughlin said.
“They can do every single thing from their own rack,” he said. “We don’t want people to feel like they don’t have access to the equipment.”
The new space has allowed the couple that owns Extreme Fitness to add new programs, benefits for members, and better serve clients, they said.
The gym owners have invested in state-of-the-art speakers and wireless microphones that boost the experience for in-person and virtual users.
McLoughlin stated his overall goal “is to make everyone feel like they’re in a private gym.”
Members of the Falls Township Board of Supervisors, Township Manager Matthew Takita, Falls Township Police Chief Nelson Whitney, and Bucks County Commissioner Chairperson Bob Harvie took part in the grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony.
“We are proud to support Marty and Linda on this new venture,” Falls Township Supervisors Chairman Jeff Dence said. “Small businesses like theirs are the fabric of our community. We wish them many years of continued success.”
McLoughlin and Stout are known in the community not just for their business but for giving back to the community. The have been big supporters of the Falls Township Police Department through annual fundraising 5K races.
