FGN Fitness
Owning her own space for a gym was Tiffany Wheatley’s life dream for 28 years. The Build Fund helped do just that so she could acquire and rehabilitate her site on Bates Street in Fountain Square. FGN Fitness is 100% woman-owned, offering weekly boot camps and personal training. Tiffany hopes to eventually offer much more; from sports-specific training to working with kids and the obesity problem in Indianapolis.
