LA Sports Fitness Center, located on Main Street at Presho, officially changed ownership Friday when Bob and Nancy Karlen and Don and Edith Jennings, all of Presho, purchased the business from Dean Reumann.

The fitness center, which was built by Reumann about 8 years ago, will now be called Lyman Fitness Center. The new owners are busy cleaning, painting, and fixing up in anticipation of a grand opening to be held in a few weeks. We will remain open to members while the renovation is underway, said Bob. The majority of the work will be completed during the evening hours and on the weekends since both couples are employed with full time jobs. The fitness centers hours remain 6 AM to 11 PM.
