Ft. Worth Location Changing Hands
“Personal training guru Larry North is getting out of downtown.
The sign out front at West 6th and Commerce Streets still says Larry North Fitness, but that will change soon. North has sold the Fort Worth end of his North Texas fitness empire after 24 years.
“Because he’s worked so closely with me, it makes for a very unique transition,” North told the Star-Telegram in a telephone interview. “We’re going to be funneling new members in his direction. We want him to be massively successful. He’s a young, up-and-coming entrepreneur with big ideas.”
Newhart, 34, is a Ph.D student and an adjunct professor in UT Arlington’s kinesiology department. He said he is on schedule to finish his degree in May 2019, but he isn’t waiting until then to take the reins of his own business.”
