An old building in Meyers is being remodeled to accommodate a new fitness facility, which plans to open for business July 1.

CrossFit 6250’ has taken over the old Alpaca Pete’s building at 3008 Highway 50, and owners Tim Anderson and Monique LeMay said they are excited to serve the Meyers community.

“We’re going to make that old Alpaca Pete’s building look real nice and functional for what we want to do,” Anderson said. “So everyone who hates that old Alpaca Pete’s building is going to have a really cool CrossFit there in its place.”

CrossFit centers are different from traditional gyms in that they focus on building core strength and conditioning without using certain weight and cardio machines that are often commonplace at a typical gym.

The workouts are constantly varied and extremely challenging to optimize physical fitness in the entire body.

Anderson said CrossFit 6250’ will offer regular CrossFit workouts along with a number of classes, including powerlifting, strongman and freerunning. The fitness center will also offer a number of activities for kids.

Both owners have extensive background in CrossFit and are competitive power lifters. They both plan on being trainers at the facility when they open it later this year.

“We believe the stronger you are, the easier life is,” Anderson said.

Although no further details have been officially released at this time, some new businesses will also be coming to South Lake Tahoe this summer when the Chateau project finishes construction.

The fence surrounding the Chateau project will come down Monday.
