ONTARIO – January 18, 2019.  A long time Ontario family of 53 years hopes to help re-energize Ontario’s downtown business district on Ridge Road.  Tim and Kim Strickland and their son, Colton, have opened two new businesses.  Tim, a financial advisor, opened Life-Vest Financial Group at 2011 Ridge Road and Core Fitness Center, with son, Colton, acting as the manager, at 2013 Ridge Road.

The building for the two businesses has been purchased by the Strickland family and offers 4,100 sq. ft. of useable business space. The gym area consists of 3,000 sq. ft. and the office area for Life-Vest is 1,100 sq. ft.  The facility has been completely renovated from top to bottom and in a couple instances uses the original oak wood from the bar that was previously located in The Barn Door, a restaurant/bar that occupied the space for many years.

Core Fitness Centeroffers customers use of a large variety of exercise machines including weights, dumb bells, medicine balls, battle ropes, and use of a private sauna.  A barbershop is operated by Colton Strickland, a master barber, and is part of the Core Fitness Center environment.  Hot towel and hot lather shaves are offered along with a full facial for men.  He uses Reuzelproducts, which are all natural from Holland.  Ricky Mastrodonatoalso works as an apprentice barber.  A membership discount is available to Core Fitness members for barbershop services.
