Oakbrook Terrace-based Mid-America Asset Management Inc. recently finalized a lease for 8,700 square feet with Naperville-based Eco Gym to open a solar- and kinetic-powered gym at Glenbrook Market Place in Glenview.

According to Mid-America Principal Richard Spinell, whose firm is the exclusive representative for the center, the independent gym opened its first location in Naperville in 2012, and plans to open the Glenview gym in September 2013.

Eco Gym uses a combination of human kinetic and solar technology to power its fitness equipment. As members use the equipment, they generate more power to the central power grid, which lowers monthly dues with each workout. In addition to traditional gym services, Eco Gym offers personal training, child fitness classes and nutritional products.

Mid-America Vice President Katie Hennegan and Leasing Representative Sarah Drumgould represented the landlord in the lease, while the tenant was self-represented.

Glenbrook Market Place is located at the northeast corner of Willow and Pfingsten roads in Glenview. Anchors at the 62,815-square-foot center are Walgreens, MB Financial Bank and McDonald’s, with other tenants including  TK’s Smoke Pit, Szechwan North, Merry Richards Jewelers and Jimmy John’s.
