Kvell Fitness Meridian is partnering with local businesses to raise money for the community during its grand opening event April 20.
Kvell Fitness opened its Meridian location in February on the corner of Ten Mile and McMillan roads.

n 8 a.m. — Make a Wish Idaho
n 9 a.m. — Girl Scouts
n 10 a.m. — West Ada Education Foundation
n 11 a.m. — Children’s Museum of Idaho

Kvell Fitness is partnering with The STIL, Boise Juice Co., FitDonut, Athleta, FeedMyFi, Elements Massage, Cycle Bar, McUs Sports and Hello Dinner to raising money for the five local nonprofits during the event. The businesses will provide goodies throughout the day as part of the event.
Kvell Fitness got first place for best exercise studio in the 2019 Best of the Treasure Valley contest. Owner Brett Denton also got first place in the personal trainer category.
Kvell is based in downtown Boise and is designed to encourage people to workout as much as they can. If residents go to the studio 12 or more times in a month, they get a $50 rebate off the cost of their membership and are entered into a cash giveaway, Denton said.
“Kvell means feeling happy and proud especially in community. We want to use our grand opening as a way to feature great local vendors and non-profits in an effort to help as many people as possible,” Denton said in a release from the studio.
