In addition to the opening of the Brookfield Ale House and the impending renovation of the former Helping Hand thrift store, another businesses has recently opened in the Grand/Prairie business district.

Strive 4 Fitness, a personal and group fitness training studio, opened Nov. 1 at 3749½ Grand Blvd. The business is owned by Shawn Groll, who says he’s been working as a fitness trainer for the past decade and wanted to finally open his own gym.

“Brookfield is right in the middle of all the locations where I was before,” Groll said. “I’m a natural-born entrepreneur and wanted my own concept, my own studio.”

Strive 4 Fitness offers about 30 different classes in categories including boot camp, spin, TRX and kettles. The studio also offers personal and small group training, which Groll schedules in between class times.

Groll has a business management degree and received personal training certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. He says he’s also a fitness nutrition specialist.

The studio is open for classes seven days a week. The studio’s Facebook page can be found at @strive4fitnessbrookfield.
