A ribbon cutting ceremony was held last week for Level Fitness at 106 N. Main St. in Swanton.
Among the small group classes offered are circuit, step, spin, SilverSneakers, yoga, TRX, according to owner Da Netra Smith. She also does personal training and nutritional guidance. In the future she plans to add more small group classes and do healthy seminars.
”I started this career path in 2014 a few years after I had my youngest,” said Smith. “At the time I was on my own health journey and loved going to a small fitness studio in Maumee. The owner encouraged me to get certified and I started teaching classes.”
Over the years, she has grown her knowledge in the field and added on certifications.
“I have several family members who have started their own businesses and I wanted to be able to continue that for my family. I chose Swanton for my location because we don’t have a fitness studio here,” Smith said. “When I started years ago it was in a studio out of town and then I wanted something local so I can be able to give back to the community.”
Smith has spent most of her life in Swanton. She graduated from Swanton High School and her kids attend Swanton Local Schools.
“Main Street is a perfect location and the support of the other business owners has been warm and caring,” said Smith. “I am excited for this adventure and to be here in Swanton.”
