We are excited to announce that Eat The Frog Fitness has officially opened our 23rd location this week in Naperville, Illinois! Naperville South opened for VIP Early Access on May 10th, marking a two-week time frame for Founding Frog Members to enjoy early access to the studio. They get an opportunity to meet their coaches and experience all of the live-coached session types offered by Eat The Frog Fitness.


The newest studio to hit our fitness franchise network is owned and operated by Bhavin and Neera Patel. They have been local to the Chicago area for most of their lives. Bhavin has an extensive background in franchising, owning, and operating several Jimmy John's franchise locations in the Chicago area.


When asked why he chose Eat The Frog Fitness as their next adventure and what excites him most about opening their new studio, he said: "What I love about being a part of Eat The Frog is the community we are building. I love how diverse our members are. Some are very active, and some are just starting their journey into fitness. Eat The Frog Fitness is personalized to help achieve the fitness goals of everyone, no matter their background". 



The Patel's have always been drawn to group fitness, and when an Eat The Frog Fitness location opened near them in Wheaton, IL, they wanted to learn more. What got them the most excited was the 24/7 access to the fitness studio, which takes away the age-old excuse of "not having enough time" to prioritize fitness. It is also rare that a boutique fitness studio would offer this unique benefit to its members. After learning that the 24/7 access was supported through robust tech systems that allowed the studio to run without any staff present during off hours - he was hooked.  


The team in Naperville has been hard at work getting their beautiful new studio ready to open. In the excitement of opening, they are doing everything to ensure that their new members' safety is a top priority. Eat The Frog Fitness studios are uniquely situated to offer a safe environment for our members; with the ability to limit session sizes, avoid equipment sharing and maintain 6-foot distances - we can ensure that our studios offer member's a safe place to work out. 


Bhavin, Neera, and their team are looking forward to showing the Naperville community what personalized group training and the #FrogSquad is all about!
