Jenny John joins us now live from that new fitness center.
She's a client there, and is here to tell us all about it.


There are plenty of gyms to choose from in the Roanoke Valley, but the new LAB Sports Performance offers a new twist on working out.

You can check it out at an open house Wednesday from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. at its location on 9th Street in Roanoke.

The owners are Certified Strength and Conditioning Coaches, which is the most elite level a fitness profession can obtain.

They are also both former semi-pro baseball players, so they train many local high school athlete teams.

The LAB is also partnering with several local bike and triathlete groups.

Each cyclist can track his or her  heart rate, calories, and energy output during the class.

They are immediately emailed the results, which they can track long term results and progress.
