No, the giant concrete-block shell rising off Nicholas Parkway and Pine Island Road in Cape Coral is NOT another new self-storage facility. It’s actually something a little more exciting.

With locations in Naples, Bonita Springs, Fort Myers, Sarasota and elsewhere, Crunch Fitness is expanding with a 33,000-square-foot gym, slated to open later this summer, according to writer David Dorsey.

As work continues on that $3 million project, the Incredible Hulk, also known as bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno, will be on hand at Gulf Coast Town Center for the opening of a new Astro-Durance fitness studio on May 15. The operation uses bungee-jumping equipment to get folks in shape.

Workout places are banking on a return of clients as more customers are vaccinated this year.

“I call it COVID-10, COVID-20 OR COVID-30,” Astro-Durance’s Patty Cummings said, meaning the number of pounds gained over the past year or so. “If anything, I think people just want to start moving again. I want to move. I want to exercise. So many people started getting joint pain because they weren’t doing anything. It does show results very quickly.”

Patty Cummings, of the Cape Coral fitness company, Astro-Durance, and Lou Ferrigno, who portrayed the Incredible Hulk on TV during the late 1970s and early 1980s.
