The DiTomasso family has spoken with Farmington's Town Planner about opening a Cross-Fit gym inside its Farmington Sports Arena facility at 11 Executive Drive.
Robert Phillips, Farmington's new town planner, told the Town Planning and Zoning Commission at its Oct. 15 meeting that Rob DiTomasso, one of the owners, talked to him about his desire to put the gym in a 1,200-square-foot vacant storage room on the property, according to the draft minutes from the meeting.
Commissioner Barbara Bernneman asked whether the gym would be open to adults. DiTomasso told the commission that only youth and adults affiliated with the program would be permitted to use the gym, the draft minutes state. The gym would not be marketed to people outside of FSA.
Commissioner Don Doeg asked whether the gym would mean an increase in parking needed at FSA and DiTomasso said that it would not.
In response to Commissioner Todd Litchfield's question about class size at the gym, DiTomasso said that classes would not exceed 15 people at a time. Commissioner Peter Mastrobattista asked if tire flipping would be a part of the training and DiTomasso said it would not and the classes would focus on "functional movement," the draft minutes stated.
While DiTomasso requested being allowed to put a sign for Cross-Fit outside the building, commissioners largely did not support the sign as the gym would be for existing soccer club members only.
