CAMDEN — The Camden Area Business Group welcomed Balanced Body Studio to Camden with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Nov. 9.

The boutique fitness studio, owned by Betsy Kingsley, who was been teaching fitness for more than 20 years, is located at 2 Virginia Ave.

Programs offered by Balanced Body Studio range from training for a specific event to programs geared toward "getting and staying healthy." Kingsley is an American Council on Exercise-certified personal trainer and orthopedic specialist, TRX Qualified, which is a suspension training system, she is certified in ballet-inspired Barre instruction, from BarSculpt and Barre Above. In her spare time, Kingsley plays competitive tennis, loves hiking, boating, skiing and fly-fishing.

Personal trainers Brystle Nobel, David MacMillan and Pilates trainer Jennifer Crane, of Crane Pilates, were on hand for the ribbon-cutting.

The ribbon-cutting was sponsored by CABG board members, and attended by Erick Anderson, Bay View Collection, Michelle Curtis and Jake Miller of First National Bank, Jodi Landrith, Camden National Bank, and Camden Community Development Director Karen Brace.

Balance Body Studio is located in a newly renovated building that was formerly owned by Tibbetts Industries. Current building owners Stuart and Tyler Smithy extensively renovated the structure, and sought Kingsley's input in constructing a state-of-the art space for the fitness facility. The facility is inviting, with lots of glass, gleaming wood flooring built to comfortably absorb impact, indirect lighting, high ceilings and four private showers and dressing rooms.

How wonderful. This building that sat for so long looking sad has been completely transformed! I'm so glad no one tore it down while it was waiting for its new purpose. It makes me think of MET... the school board should consider letting that one sit a little too if necessary. Why rush to demolish when wonderful things like this could be just around the corner?!

Good luck to everyone involved in this new endeavor!
