Rage Fitness finds success with locations in Springfield, Nixa

Amanda Gerla

If you drive past the parking lot of Rage Fitness at 2321 S. Campbell Ave. in Springfield, it seems to always be full.

Despite being more expensive than national chains like Planet Fitness, Rage Fitness has developed a loyal membership that the owners say is because of the top-notch facilities and family atmosphere.

Rage Fitness opened in Springfield last summer after starting with a location in Nixa. A year later, business is booming.

“We try to create an environment to where it feels like your gym,” said Sylas Shores, who co-owns the business with Brandon Davis.

The Rage Fitness location on Campbell Avenue is a 15,000 square-foot, two-story facility with hand-picked equipment, personal training, men’s and women’s locker rooms, private showers and more.

Membership, which gives customers 24-hour access to the Springfield and Nixa locations, starts at $34.99 a month.

Rage Fitness co-owner Sylas Shores talks about opening their second gym location at 2321 S. Campbell Avenue last summer.

Shores isn’t new to the gym culture. He told the News-leader that he started working out at the age of 13.

For Shores, working out was more than a way to train for sports. Shores had a rough upbringing and he went to the gym because he felt like he could control everything there.
