Fitness Machine Technicians, specialists in the maintenance and repair of exercise equipment for commercial and residential customers, announced it will open in the Jacksonville area today. Chuck Hood of St. John’s county and his family will own and manage the local office.
Chuck and his wife Sharon are excited to make this new endeavor a family affair. Their youngest son Josh will have a role as a lead technician along with sales and service duties, and Sharon will help with day-to-day business operations and scheduling. Chuck shares, “Our family is ready to start a new venture together – it will be a great opportunity for us to connect with our entrepreneurial spirit and grow a business on Florida’s First Coast that helps keep people’s fitness equipment fit in order to help themselves stay fit.”
The Hoods have lived and worked in the Jacksonville area for the past 25 years. Chuck has worked in manufacturing, focused on machine automation design, fabrication and production operations, while Sharon has worked as a nurse in various roles and settings. In looking for opportunities to pursue a lifelong dream of owning his own business that would complement his technical background, Chuck found Fitness Machine Technicians to be the perfect fit.
A graduate of University of Tennessee at Chattanooga with a undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Master’s in Business, Chuck states, “With North Florida’s high population growth rate and increasing development of new hotels, resorts, condos, and HOAs with gyms, there’s an increasing need for a service that streamlines and optimizes repairing and maintaining fitness equipment to meet the needs of Floridians who expect quality fitness machines to complete their workouts.” He adds, “It’s our goal to provide the best possible service for those who use, own, or supply fitness equipment throughout the North Florida area for both residential and commercial customers.”
