VOLANT, Pa– In the small town of Volant, you can find some interesting small shops and restaurants, but as you come down the hill on Route 208 the first thing you see is a small building that looks just like a ordinary building, but don’t let the look deceive you inside people working hard to achieve their fitness goals.
The Basement Fitness Center is a community workout facility that helps a wide variety of clientele. From young athletes getting ready for the upcoming season to the elderly just trying to stay mobile, they all look to owner and trainer Paul Yohman as a guide.
Yohman, a former Westminster College Strength and Conditioning Coach, started The Basement in his own basement when he was only 20 as a way for him and his friends to hang out and workout.
“It was just kind of our thing, it was a hang out. Then, when I grew as an athlete I trained more athletes and then people wanted to lose weight, tone up and from there it took on a life of its own.” -Paul Yohman
The reason Yohman choose Volant for the gym’s location was due to it being located in the middle of where most of his clients live from New Castle, New Wilmington, Grove City, and many more.
So if you looking for a friendly environment to workout head on down to The Basement.
