Springfield Nutrition, a nutrition, food prep and fitness one-stop shop, opens at 1501 N. Main Street and opens its doors on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – (Note: the video above is from an earlier report.)
Springfield, a unique black-owned fitness facility owned exclusively by women, is opening its doors on Saturday.
First Coast News first introduced you to Ryan McGriff in February. He is a personal trainer who has worked with professional and college athletes and never thought he would only help women achieve their fitness goals.
Until his mother JoAnn died at the age of 51 after leading an unhealthy lifestyle.
“My mom had heart problems, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, so not a really active lifestyle,” McGriff told First Coast News in January. “I haven’t really eaten healthy at all. So I wanted to make sure I could help as many women as possible. “
McGriff said a few days after his mother’s funeral that he felt called to train all women and to dedicate the business to his mother. He stopped working with college football players, NFL players, Orlando Magic players, and others to make sure women in Jacksonville were healthy and fit.
Springfield Nutrition, a one-stop shop for nutrition, meal prep and fitness, is now opening at 1501 North Main Street. The opening takes place on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., a joint venture between McGriff and his wife Chrystina.
The event features make-up, competitions, nutrition shakes, stimulating teas, a DJ and much more.
