Renovations are under way for 24-hour fitness club Anytime Fitness, scheduled to open by the end of February.
The 4,900-square-foot space at The Crossings of Beaufort will include weight-training and cardio equipment, tanning facilities and group classes. Members can work out at any time of day, including when no staff is on duty, by using a security access key.
Owners Jode and Julia Kirk moved to the area from Mount Pleasant after spending months visiting small communities and gyms. Both have prior experience with Anytime Fitness, but this will be their first as owners.
"We decided Beaufort is a perfect little location for us to start our endeavor," Julia Kirk said.

Yemassee health center to be converted
The old health center in Yemassee will get new life as retail and office space through a $75,000 federal grant.
The vacant 884-square-foot building at 25 Salkehatchie Road will be renovated with the grant obtained by the Yemassee Revitalization Corp. The group is seeking bids for the work and expects the renovation to be completed in about two months, executive director Emily Ratliff said. The space could accommodate three businesses, Ratliff said, adding that a doctor already has expressed interest.
