Fitness Center Changes Name

“Changes inside a familiar Rosemont fitness club have prompted changes outside the club as well. Willow Creek health club officially changed its name to Rosemont Health and Fitness last week and installed new signage outside the facility on Higgins Rd. between Mannheim and Scott. Club Director Doug DuBrock said the new name more accurately reflects changes that have been occurring inside the state of the art, village-owned health club for the last four or five years. He said the old name brought some confusion to local residents in understanding that the fitness center is open to the public and that it is owned and operated by the village. DuBrock said that, though it was only a secondary consideration for the change, the old name was often confused with Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington. The health club sits adjacent to Willow Creek which flows through Rosemont. New signs were installed last week, but DuBrock said a grand reopening celebration will wait until next fall when activity picks up at the club as colder weather forces exercise activities inside. DuBrock also clarified that the club is open to the public at large, not just to Rosemont residents, and is not a part of the Rosemont Park District.”
