UNDATED -- A popular area health club franchise is changing their brand. Fitness Evolution will now operate under the name Sta-Fit starting Monday.

Regional Manager Kevin Hardy says the Fitness Evolution brand focused on West Coast growth, and they wanted to take a local approach for their members.

Over the last few months the company has invested nearly $800,000 in club improvements, equipment upgrades, and new programs like heart rate monitor training classes and fitness programs for children.

Hardy says with the change in branding, there will be no change in pricing.

This is the first brand owned company Owner Brad Kloss has owned and operated.

Sta-Fit has 10 clubs, three in Minnesota, Sartell, St. Cloud and Rochester and seven in Arizona.

This is the third name change for the club in the last 17 years, first as Gold's Gym, then Fitness Evolution.
