The former Tecumseh Family YMCA reopened as a privately-owned fitness center after years of falling into disrepair.
The New Carlisle Sports and Fitness Club has been purchased by local Doctor Ashok Devatha which also runs the New Carlisle Family Medicine and Urgent Care, located on North Main Street.
“When the YMCA shut down it was like we’d lost a member of the community,” said Devatha.
He said after waiting to see if anyone would buy the old Y, he decided to step up and do it. The people around here don’t have much to do or anything to get involved in,” Devatha said.
“The Turner Foundation had already spent $1.2 million on the pool and I didn’t want it to go to waste. “The building was in extremely bad shape,” he said. “I bought it under the assumption we could clean it up and go right in, but it took almost six months.” Devatha is still fixing the exterior damage and had to buy all new equipment.
“It’s a close place for people to exercise and get healthy and stay in their own city,” said City Manager Kimberly Jones. “We’re glad it’s not sitting there empty.”
The club will offer fitness classes, has all new equipment, a conference room, a cafe and a two-hour day care for parents. Devatha is now giving tours of the New Carlisle Sports and Fitness Club and soliciting potential members
“It’s more of a country club feel,” Devatha said. “I’m confident this will be a place people will want to be.”
