Power Shop Fitness has been an establishment in the Plant City area since 1990 and has been owned and operated by the Mays family. The building itself has been in the Mays family for generations.

Back in the 1970’s a gym, called Mega’s Gym, was opened for the first time. Joe Mega the owner, eventually sold the gym and in the 80’s Bobbie Watts purchased it and changed the name. With the name change, it was called the American Eagle Gym. The American Eagle Gym steadily became a growing business in the area. Mr. Watts sold the gym in the late 1980’s and the new owner kept the name. However, the new owner ended up closing the business down very unexpectedly in April of 1990. Unfortunately, all the member’s found out about the closing as they showed up to workout.

Kirk Mays was the current owner of the building and was just as surprised by the closing as the members of the American Eagle gym. Kirk got in touch with Mr. Watts, asked him about the equipment he owned, and made a deal to purchase the equipment from him. The gym closure only lasted about one week. It was just enough time for Kirk to get equipment back into the gym and get the utilities turned on.

So, on May 5th, 1990, the Power Shop Gym opened. The name was later changed to Power Shop Fitness, in order to better describe the business and it’s members.

There were many members from the American Eagle gym who had just joined with yearly memberships when it closed its doors. So, to show the old members of American Eagle Gym that the Power Shop was here to stay, as well as to show good will, Kirk gave those customers a free year membership.

It was this good will, and the good customers of Power Shop Fitness, that has helped the business grow into the successful fitness center that it is today. When the Power Shop started it only occupied one half of the building. Today, the gym encompasses the entire building. Power Shop Fitness has been able to be successful and grow, in a culture of unexpected gym closures, by never acquiring large amounts of debt. At Power Shop, we always keep the equipment and building up to date.

We look forward to many more years with our old and new members and we look forward to helping you meet your goals.

Power Shop Fitness is located in the heart of beautiful, historic downtown Plant City, Florida. Our fitness center is very unique, because it’s atmosphere and members are beyond compare. It’s a place where you can come and feel comfortable and at home.

Our members are a very diverse group of people here at Power Shop. Our members have a common goal: to better themselves. What we are not here at Power Shop is a “social club”. We don’t have pizza night, bagel mornings, we don’t come to make fashion statements, and our members are people who are serious about physical fitness and health.

We are a real gym, for both men and women, young and old. We have everything available, from free weights, to high tech cardio equipment, and everything in-between. We also have an outside workout area with battle ropes, sandbags, and tires. Additionally, we have all the equipment needed for power lifts and bodybuilders from power racks and dead lift platforms, to heavy weight dumbbells.

At Power Shop Fitness, we have a very experienced staff available to help you in your needs. We have personal trainers here to help you reach your fitness goals, whatever they may be, along with a train who has an onsite fitness lab. If you’re serious about bettering yourself, then Power Shop Fitness is where you need to be.

Don’t be upset by the results you didn’t get with the work you didn’t do.
