January news from the Troy BID

Downtown Happenings 
January 2016


We hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and our unseasonably warm weather. 

As we head into 2016, and the bicentennial celebration of Troy's incorporation, we are looking at some downtown Troy projects that are beyond exciting. Stay in touch with us so that you don't miss out!

It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to Troy's Director of Operations, Bill Chamberlain, who tragically left us all too soon in December. We will do all that we can to honor Bill's memory and work ethic as we continue to program the city he loved so much. 

We are so grateful for all of the support that we receive on Troy's behalf every day. Here is to charging forward, into what we feel will be a record year for downtown!

Grand Opening & Open House - The Balance Loft 
Friday, January 29
11 State Street

The Balance Loft is owned and operated by Kelly Kendall who has been working on opening an integrative fitness studio since 2013. Kelly looked at many different areas to open her studio but when she came to Troy she felt a "fresh, friendly and creative"energy that she hadn't felt in other areas. Kelly is so happy to both live and operate her business on in historic Troy, as she says "the studio just feels right here."

The Balance Loft is a boutique fitness studio offering warm and hot yoga, Barre and Boot Camp in an Infrared heated studio. The studio also offers private TRX personal training from Adam Howard who has over 9,000 hours of experience.
