Alaska Training Room to move to Ocean Drive

An exercise facility that caters to athletes of all ages and backgrounds will move to a new location on Ocean Drive this month.

Owned and operated by Mary Jo Campbell, Alaska Training Room, or ATR, is now in a big steel building on Kachemak Drive, but will move to 1130 Ocean Drive starting next week.

The new location is in a white building across the street from the Homer Farmers Market and Homer Sustainable Wares. It will be in the back side of the building and share the structure with Cornerstone Counseling.

The new location will be more visible and closer to town, Campbell said.

Started in June 2012, ATR offers functional circuit training using body weights, ropes and other equipment.

“We do movements that mimic what we do in daily living, whether you’re a fisherman, an athlete or a housewife,” Campbell said. “It’s just really a nice group circut training program that focuses on function. I don’t care how much people can lift. I care that they can do their lives better.”

Campbell said she hopes to have classes in the new location starting next week, but will definitely be moved in by Feb. 1. Classes are held at 8 and 10 a.m., noon, and 4 and 5:30 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and at 6:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays.

People can buy punch cards for classes or a monthly membership. For more information call 299-8505 or visit alaskatrainingroom.com.
