Working Out? It Can Be A Snap

Jan Travers was sitting at Dunkin' Donuts at Patton Place Plaza, Lower Paxton Twp., when she saw the mall's fitness facility ‘And I thought I really should do something other than eat,’ said Travers, 58, of Lower Paxton. A year ago, she joined Snap Fitness, probably the midstate's only 24-hour, self-serve gym and has felt a difference in her leg strength. Bonnie and Edward Berkoski opened their 3,000-square-foot Snap Fitness franchise, purchased for $15,000, in October 2007. The Lower Paxton couple with two children, ages 16 and 19, already owned coin laundries and sought other business opportunities offering similar ‘hands-off management and self-service,’ Bonnie Berkoski said. ‘But we didn't want food or anything too out of the ordinary,’ Berkoski said. ‘We wanted something that people needed.’
