Vesta is looking to bulk-up only a year after opening.

On the heels of its one year anniversary, Vesta Movement, a fitness center with a kickboxing focus, is already planning to expand.

Vesta is looking to take over the second floor of its current home, at 744 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Co-Owner Missy Mostrom, told What Now Atlanta in an email this week.

The additional space would afford Vesta the opportunity to introduce a new "strength-endurance program" and the ability to add more classes to accommodate the growth of the business, Mostrom said.

The fitness center, co-owned by Mostrom, a bartender-turned fitness junkie and Alixx Hetzel, a former stylist and salon owner, offers "high-intensity" kickboxing classes in 60 minute sessions led by "encouraging" trainers and the "hottest" playlists.

The new space, which current Vesta members "previewed" late last week, should open January 2017.
