Veteran-run Three60fit gym aims to train and inspire

In recent years, Christian Koshaba has been helping clients do everything from lifting weights to engaging in other forms of exercise and stretching through his health and wellness gym business.

Since moving to Knoxville from her old home in the Chicago area, she feels like a weight has been lifted from her shoulders, too, realizing she’s come to the right community.

“It’s been a very welcoming community,” he said. “He appreciates veterans and is based in the Bible Belt. It’s perfect for me”.

Since mid-March, Koshaba has been operating what he calls a transformative health and fitness center, Three60fit, at 4028 Papermill Drive, not far from the South College campus.

Air Force veteran Christian Koshaba recently opened the Three60fit gym at 4028 Papermill Drive.

After having a more formal opening over Memorial Day weekend topped off with an intense Murph Challenge packed with physical activity for veterans, he’s very pleased with how business has gone so far.

“Everything is going great,” he said in a recent phone interview. “The last few weeks have been pretty hectic. I am full of clients. It’s been a bit chaotic.”
