Former NFL Player to Open Fitness Franchise in State College

Juqua Parker, who spent 12 seasons in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles, Tennessee Titans, and Cleveland Browns, is set to open a Power Train Fitness franchise in State College on May 16.

Steve Saunders, founder and president of Power Train Fitness, said that Parker was previously Saunders’ client and expressed interest in opening his own shop. It will be the 15th location for the chain.

The other centers are scattered across Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Virginia.

Saunders says Power Train is different than other gyms in that it offers individualized programs through small groups led by certified trainers.

“What really it amounts to is a personalized training service for a fraction of the price,” Saunders says. “We’re really hands on with our clients. … Everybody that comes in the place gets treated like they are a pro-athlete.”

Saunders says the gym is for everyone from pro-athletes to high school and youth athletes to senior golfers to housewives looking to lose a few extra pounds.

Saunders adds that Power Train is the “complete opposite” of other fitness centers that offer gimmicks and circuits.

“We’re looking to have meaningful impact on each of our clients,” he says.

Membership rates will range from $59 to $279 a month.
