Capacity Fitness Opens in Locust Point

| September 30, 2020 | 0 Comments

Capacity Fitness opened over the summer at 1000 Key Hwy. East in Locust Point. The H.I.I.T. and functional fitness gym led by personal local trainer Hugh Green takes over  700 sq. ft. of garage space that was once part of Egan Marine Contracting Co. and later Weller Development Company.

Green, who is a former college football player, has been coaching at CrossFit gyms and has been a certified personal trainer for the past five years. He decided it was a good time to open his own gym after one he worked at temporarily closed due to the city-wide shutdown of gyms. Green was born and raised in Baltimore and has been a resident of South Baltimore for the past five years.

Capacity Fitness offers three 60-minute classes Sunday to Friday and four classes on Saturdays. Each class, which is a combination of intense cardio and strength training, is capped at six participants. Capacity Fitness also offers one-on-one personal training sessions and an open gym on weekend mornings. Green also offers nutrition coaching.

Capacity Fitness offers monthly memberships, class packages, personal training packages, and a nutrition membership. Green is currently offering a 10 days for $10 special so people can try out the new gym.

Members of Capacity Fitness can use the bathroom and locker room in the main office building on the property.

Capacity Fitness will be hosting events for its members like Legs & Eggs and Bacon & Barbells.

Green took on a light renovation of the garage and filled it with weights and some cardio equipment. The garage door opens and allows Capacity Fitness to do indoor/outdoor workouts in the waterfront parking lot. Green said he was attracted to the space because of the parking, the great views, and the ability to have an indoor and outdoor training space. He loves that South Baltimore has a great energy and a neighborhood feel at the same time.

Another gym is under construction in the garage next to Capacity Fitness. Green said both gyms complement each other well.
