SANDPOINT — Whether your fitness goal is a healthier heart or 50 more pounds of muscle mass, the Cordles want to help.
That’s why Jason and Kristine Cordle and Luke and Andrea Cordle have started Cor24 Fitness. A new full-fitness gym with 24-hour access, Cor24 Fitness owners aim to create an environment that both the exercise neophyte and the hardcore body builder can find accessible. The Cordles are confident that the gym has all the necessary equipment to support any workout regiment.
“Our mission is to provide a well-equipped, safe and engaging environment for our members,” Andrea Cordle said.
Interested individuals can try a membership on for size at the fitness center’s grand opening Saturday. Scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the day will include food, snacks, prizes and perhaps most importantly, the chance to tour the facility and try out the equipment. The open house will be held at the gym’s Ponderay location located near Bonner General Immediate Care, 400 Schweitzer Plaza Suite 5.
According to the Cordles, the gym’s equipment might be enough to win some people over. After deciding to open a fitness center, the two couples began carefully researching the latest and greatest in fitness machines. After much investigation and a little help from fitness machine provider Better Body Fitness in Spokane, the Cordles settled on Hoist exercise equipment. Machine models like Roc-It and its ability to simultaneously work several muscle groups impressed the new business owners.
“For example, when you’re doing chest presses, the machine also works your core muscles,” Cordle said.
Cor24 Fitness will also provide opportunities for community members to participate in group sessions. Initially, the gym will offer Zumba, yoga and aerobics, but Cordle said they hope to soon expand into self-defense training. The two couples also aim to eventually open a small retail shop where members can purchase dietary supplements and other health necessities.
All this work is the result of the Cordles’ long-standing dream to own a business. As fitness enthusiasts, brothers Jason and Luke Cordle realized that a gym fit their personalities. In turn, the Cordles decided to inject a little of their own personality into the gym.
“Cor24 Fitness kind of reflects the four of us,” Cordle said. “We’re trying to make it simple but low-key and relaxed.”
