Showroom Location Found at 2136 Rutland Drive Suite C Austin 78758

showroom-outside-thumbAfter a very lengthy search of commercial property available for lease in Austin, we are thrilled to announce we found a location for opening our Austin Fitness Rentals showroom.

Community Impact -Industrial area offers businesses flexibility

Industrial area offers businesses flexibility

Community Impact Cover March April 2014

Opening his business in the Rutland Business Center, an industrial office park that offers warehouse access, saves owner Kyle May about four times on shipping costs.

Every other month a semitrailer brings in thousands of pounds of fitness equipment for his business, Austin Fitness Rentals. In the back warehouse he assembles the machines, which often weigh as much as 650 pounds each. The front half of May’s space is used for the showroom because 50 percent of his customers want to view the equipment in person.
