Popular Boxing-Inspired Workout Studio Opens First Utah Studio

SALT LAKE CITY – Jabz is packing a punch in Utah.

Distinguishable as a boxing-inspired workout, Jabz has announced the opening of its first studio inSalt Lake City. Slated to open to the public on Feb. 15, the new studio will be located at 1094 S in the 300 West Town Center.

To celebrate its opening, Jabz Salt Like is inviting members of the community to a grand opening event on Saturday, February 13 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. The event will kick-off with a ribbon cutting, and guests can enjoy refreshments, gym tours and giveaways. Attendees will have the opportunity to snap photos at the Jabz-branded photobooth and listen to live music from a local DJ throughout the event.

The new studio is owned and operated by North Salt Lake resident Megan Hitt, who fell in love with Jabz while living in Arizona. When she moved to Utah, Hitt knew she had to bring the studio fitness concept to Salt Lake.

“When my family and I moved to Salt Lake, I saw a clear need for the empowering community that Jabz fosters,” said Hitt. “Having my own background in business, my husband encouraged me to open a Jabz studio. For the past year, many haven’t been able to see their parents, siblings and friends, and they are longing to be surrounded by a group of driven people. I can’t wait to provide that community and support for our members in Salt Lake and help everyone who walks through our doors reach their physical and mental goals.”

Prior to opening her new Jabz studio, Hittworked in corporate accounting and business administration. Utilizing her experience will be a key component in operating her new business, while her passion for fitness and inspiring others will be vital in building up her Jabz community. Hitt aims to make her Jabz location a safe space for all members, including those in the LGBTQ+ communities.

Jabz offers intense, results-driven full-body workouts to help clients achieve their fitness goals. Jabz classes are kept small to encourage an individual and positive workout experience. All classes are led by dedicated, certified instructors who offer one-on-one support for all members. 

“We’re excited to see Jabz make the move into a new state and have full confidence in Megan’s ability to succeed,” said Danielle Scott, Brand President of Jabz. “We know she will excel in building relationships with the members of Salt Lake as they come to recognize what makes the Jabz experience so unique.”
