Fitness centers to join forces

Jan. 18, 2019

Two Dell Rapids fitness centers are teaming up in a joint location.

Matt Beukelman, the owner of Rapid Fitness, bought a former auto parts building in the south part of town and is remodeling it for his 24-hour gym with cardio equipment and free weights, his training programs, and tanning and infrared sauna services. The site also will be the home of Revive Fitness’ group training classes, which Brittani Bollock started in 2014.

The fitness centers are expected to make the move into their new home in February.

Beukelman, who specializes in personal training, started Rapid Fitness in 2015, buying out a Tryon Gym which wasn’t being used much and “needed TLC,” he said. His clients in Sioux Falls followed him to Dell Rapids, “and it just continued to grow from there.”

A few student-athletes signed on for one-on-one training, and their success created interest in Rapid Fitness’ services, Beukelman said. Now, he’s also working with area schools, providing programs such as strength conditioning and basketball training for student-athletes.

With the new location, Rapid Fitness will take over the operational side of Revive Fitness for Bollock. Classes will continue on the same schedule with the same instructors, Bollock said. Revive offers at least a dozen classes a week. Most of them are kettle ball and functional fitness, she said, but instructors also lead boot camps and Beachbody, Turbo Kick, Core de Force, PiYo and yoga classes.

The addition of Revive Fitness will expand Rapid Fitness’ top membership program to include unlimited group fitness classes, Beukelman said. As an additional benefit, participants who miss a class will be able to complete their workout with virtual classes shown on a 75-inch monitor in the fitness center, he said.

Beukelman and Bollock said they’re looking forward to working together.

“The cool part is that it will benefit the members and the community,” Bollock said.
