Urban Active Fitness Celebrates Grand Opening In Buckhead

Atlanta just got healthier… in the blink of an eye. Urban Active Fitness’ Grand Opening for its’ new Buckhead location (in the Lenox Marketplace Plaza) was complete with red carpet, celebrities, vendors and tons of visitors on Saturday, June 25th. VIPs such as Jasmine Guy (actress, singer, dancer), Brandi D (formerly of R&B group Blaque), Angel McCoughtry (WNBA & Team USA Allstar) and more were on hand for the opening. The membership areas were standing room only most of the 12 hour day, as patrons poured in as fast as they left smiling – membership in hand.
