Downtown Harrisburg has a new place to break a sweat, as a fitness center is slated to open this month.

Fit on Market opens this week in Strawberry Square as a “boutique” fitness center, according to building owner Harristown Enterprises.

“We are very excited to have a fantastic new downtown fitness facility to serve both our workforce and residential populations here in the city,” said Brad Jones, Harristown’s president and CEO.

Strawberry Square’s previous fitness studio, Fitness U, closed in June.

Fit on Market is located in another area of Strawberry Square, on the Market Street side, and is accessible both from inside and outside, allowing members to enter the facility even when the building isn’t open.

Fit on Market will offer new, state-of-the-art Matrix cardio and strength training equipment, in addition to newly constructed locker and shower facilities. Harristown has installed bipolar ionization equipment to continuously disinfect the air and surfaces, Jones said.

A line of treadmills awaits users at Fit on Market.

According to Harristown, memberships are limited in number and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. The cost is $45 per month, billed quarterly.

The facility will be unstaffed, but safety systems will be in place to protect members, including connections to on-site security and emergency responders, as well as personal safety devices that can be used while working out, according to Harristown.

Members will be issued their own access cards to allow entry to Fit on Market during facility hours, 5 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week.

Fit on Market is located in Strawberry Square and at 312 Market St., Harrisburg. For more information, call 717-255-1021 or visit
