In February of 2011, the club was purchased by local business owner Stan Pace and his wife Kim. Stan, the founder of Gold Star Fitness, began operations in 1986 in a barn type building in Rogersville, Tennessee.
With mostly homemade equipment, it served as a place for Stan and a few friends to work out. Each member was given a key for a small monthly fee. During the next decade, Stan grew Gold Star Fitness to 5 area locations by continuously investing the membership dues into new and better equipment. Gold Star Fitness grew into the area’s premier fitness facility provider and is now part of Lifestyle Fitness.
