There will be a new business going in the vacant downtown building on Ridge Street in Glens Falls.
Kathy Porcell will be opening a specialty fitness studio on May 1 on the buildings second floor. The business is going to be called Elevation Pilates.
The Greater Glens Falls Local Development is helping finance the project with up to $60,000 in state Main Street program grant funding. The grants will be for the renovations and improving the building.
Porcell said she has been teaching pilates since 2008 and was first introduced to it when she was recovering from a dance injury. Pilates is a way to exercise using graceful movements to improve flexibility, posture and physical strength.
When the renovations are completed the interior will look like a brand new building. It is sure to be a great place to get your fitness on and try a new way to get fit.
