EL CENTRO — Gym and fitness enthusiasts in the Imperial Valley were left with somewhat of a void after the location that formerly housed Joe’s Powerhouse Gym and its predecessor Jacques 'n Jills Health Club at 220 Wake Ave. was vacated about 10 months ago.

Once the facility closed, former Joe’s Powerhouse members and Valley natives Daniel Vasquez and Juan Sanchez, who was also a Jacques 'n Jills member during its existence, teamed up and took it upon themselves to reopen the facility.

Congratulations and best of luck. As mentioned in the article, there is limited amounts of places to take little ones to in this valley. Hopefully they will incorporate something for the kids as well
