Loveland, Ohio – Loveland, Ohio is filled with so many opportunities to keep healthy and stay in shape! Although the Loveland Bike Trail provides plenty of fitness activities and there are of course a few pilates and yoga studios throughout Loveland, there still just didn’t seem to be a place that provided nutrition, personal training, and an open gym all combined into one well-rounded fitness facility right here in Loveland….until now! John Kennedy, owner of 650 Fitness, and Jen Kavensky, owner of Vibe Nutrition, took a leap of faith and are now preparing to open the well-rounded gym the Loveland community has been waiting for. Vibe Fitness, located at 10480 Loveland Madeira Road, is set to open it’s doors to the community at its grand opening on Friday, October 11th from 4 PM to 7 PM followed by an after-party at Bishop’s Quarter! The grand opening will be benefiting breast cancer awareness and Cancer Free Kids, a non-profit dedicated to children’s cancer research right here in Loveland.
Loveland Magazine decided to pay Vibe Fitness a visit to see what the community should expect for the grand opening Friday! Below is a press release provided by Kennedy and Kavensky with more in-depth details on how Vibe Fitness came about and why the grand opening is so huge for the community of Loveland.

Local Fitness and Nutrition Enthusiasts Collaborate to Open Vibe Fitness
Vibe Fitness will mark the opening of its first-class, 24-hour, fitness and nutrition center in an event on Friday in Loveland, Ohio. The grand opening celebration will be a fun-filled event with raffles, giveaways, food, and drinks. The newly expanded fitness center, located on 10480 Loveland Madeira Road, is a state-of-the-art, 6,000 square-foot facility that offers high-quality equipment, group classes, personal training, nutrition counseling, and meal planning.
John Kennedy the owner of Vibe Fitness is a true visionary. At 24 years old, John’s idea had been to build the best personal training studio for clients only and then expand into the market of general memberships. The idea became a reality, as John has successfully built a two-sided gym that gives personal training clients the privacy of one-on-one training and the general members the ability to workout freely.
“Since the very first business plan, my desire has always been to give Loveland the gym they deserve, and I will continue to do that until my vision is fulfilled,” said John Kennedy, owner of Vibe Fitness. “I enjoy seeing the look on people’s faces when they first see the new facility. Since the completion of this first phase, my attention and focus are already shifting towards the next expansion.”
Vibe Fitness was born when John was contemplating the idea of rebranding 650 Fitness when Vibe Nutrition moved in two doors down in January of 2019. Jennifer Kavensky, the owner of Vibe Nutrition, began training with John when she opened Vibe Nutrition’s doors. “We are so excited to be working with John Kennedy and Vibe Fitness. They have top-notch professionals who understand what it means to create a healthy community. The partnership is a natural fit because we share a common mission to create a positive place where community members can come together for a healthy lifestyle,” Kavensky said.
Vibe Nutrition of Loveland is a nutrition bar that offers a variety of shakes and teas that you can take on the go. They also offer wellness coaching, nutritional counseling, weight loss and fitness challenges, Cardio Drumming, and Fit Camps that empowers people to live a healthy and active lifestyle.
Since Kavensky started gym training at 650 Fitness Kennedy says they have formed a great business partnership.
“I never considered working with another company because history repeats itself and history has not been in my favor with partners. Jennifer understood my vision right away and before I knew it, she was taking off and pushing for it before I was, and I think that’s why the business relationship evolved so quickly. There is no contractual or monetary agreement between the two businesses and for the both of us, and everyone that works here, we genuinely all share the same vision of what we want for the community. Every day is still very surreal for me when I walk into work and see all the cylinders firing because believe me, it’s not because of what I have done, but what all the people around me have done because they pour their passion into their work,” Kennedy said.
There are about 3,000 square feet in the expansion with forty-five brand new pieces of equipment. Everything in the expansion is brand new. One section is for beginners with “pin-loaded” equipment so beginners can easily load their own weights. “Just by pulling a pin you can go from 25, 30, or 45 pounds,” Kennedy said, “The other side is “plated-loaded” equipment and a little more advanced for people who have been working out with weights for a little while.” To load the weight for your workout you actually pick up weights and load it onto the machines. “These advanced machines isolate the target muscles a lot more than you would see at commercial size gyms. This is the kind of stuff you see in high school, university, or professional gyms,” Kennedy added.
