Small Business Saturday: The Weight House


Each day, leading up to Small Business Saturday, we want to feature a small business owner within Orange County. Nicolette believes in small business, as she and her husband both come from small business families. Please remember to shop local throughout the year and support these unique establishments.

The second small business we want to spotlight is The Weight House, owned and operated by Nick McFarland. He wanted his space to be a community place for people to lift and feel safe, welcomed and know that the equipment is up-to-date and well maintained. This is a place to lift and build a stronger version of you. Our town is a beautiful town to ride, walk, or run around, but when it's time to implement strength training, where do you go? The Weight House is here, and ready for you!

"After completely changing my life around, I realized that this is what I wanted to do. I jumped into personal training and then immediately became certified. I fell in love with impacting the lives of others in a positive way. I knew immediately that this is what I wanted to commit my life to. So here we are! Welcome to The Weight House." - Nick McFarland
