Anytime Fitness Northwood Gets A Facelift,

And Expands  Holds Grand Re-Opening

Interior Design Upgrades Enhance Member

Experience, New Group Fitness Room


Anytime Fitness, Northwood will unveil its upgraded look with a Grand Re-Opening celebration on Tuesday, September 27th, from 8 AM to 8 PM, with a chamber ribbon cutting at 2 PM.


The finished look is courtesy of Fabiano Designs, a New Jersey based design firm with over 20 years experience designing fitness clubs internationally.  General contractor for the project was JC Builders, of Goffstown, NH.


“Our goal was to help re-energize and evolve the workout areas by incorporating a warm yet energetic color palette while offering a functionally systematic design layout in the clubs,” says Rudy Fabiano, Design Director at Fabiano Designs.


The traditional Anytime Fitness purple color has maintained a presence in the club, but has been complemented by softer and more natural tones. A 600 square foot multipurpose room has been added to the club, allowing the site to now offer a variety of group classes, such as; Yoga, Zumba, TRX, Boot Camps, Tai Chi, Cardio Kickboxing, and more.


“The remodeling effort is another way for us to provide our members with a clean, upscale, inviting environment where they can achieve their fitness goals,” says owner Rebecca Capo of Anytime Fitness.


In addition to the new color and layout schemes, a new “Inspiration Wall” has been added to the club. It’s a place where we can write our goals down, offer words of encouragement, share tips, and celebrate our achievements.” Members and staff routinely gain inspiration and motivation from each other’s experiences, and we wanted a central location to share all that positivity” explains Rebecca.


With 24/7 access, Anytime Fitness offers a convenient and affordable alternative for today’s hectic, on-the-go lifestyles. Members use security-access keys to enter the club. Once inside, members have full use of state-of-the-art strength training and cardiovascular equipment. Most of the treadmills and bikes feature personalized viewing screens. A private shower and dressing area is available at each club.


To celebrate its Grand Re-Opening and Expansion, Anytime Fitness Northwood is offering a “Join for $1” promotion on September 27th from 8 AM to 8 PM.


Club tours will be available during the grand reopening celebration. Membership information is available at the club, by calling 603-942-6027, or by visiting



This Weekend’s Lrpa After Dark Feature: 1954’s “Suddenly”


Join Lakes Region Public Access Television at 10:30 p.m. this Friday and Saturday night (September 23 & 24) for this week’s “LRPA After Dark” encore presentation of 1954’s film noir crime drama “Suddenly,” starring Sterling Hayden and Ol’ Blue Eyes himself, Frank Sinatra.


“Suddenly” tells the tale of three would-be assassins who come to the California town of Suddenly with murder on their minds: specifically, killing the President of the United States as he travels through on the train. They pose as FBI agents to gain entrance to a home, then take everyone hostage while they plan their despicable deed. Sinatra made this film hot off of his Oscar-winning role in “From Here to Eternity,” and was keen to play a villain. He did so to high critical praise. A sad footnote to this film is that allegedly,” Suddenly” is the film that Lee Harvey Oswald watched the evening before he shot President Kennedy to death in Dallas, TX.  Hollywood legend has it that, upon hearing this news, Sinatra demanded that “Suddenly” be pulled from any further film distribution. Because of this, many younger viewers have never had the chance to see this film, one that The New York Times hailed as “… a compact study of terror and suspense, with a bit of a nervous contemplation of a psychopathic character thrown in.”  If you’ve never seen “Suddenly,” you’re in a classic film treat! So grab your popcorn and join LRPA after dark for this crime drama from the past.


You can’t find television like this it anywhere but LRPA TV, MetroCast Channel 25. Not a subscriber? Then log onto Live Stream through our website ( where you can catch all the fun.

Willow’s Run Exceeds Expectations In Second Year

Thanks to overwhelming community support, business sponsors who donated funds and physical goods or services, and individual donors, Willow’s Run far surpassed their goals this year.  The 5K trail race had 75 runners in its USATF sanctioned event, as well as 30 walkers.  Portsmouth Regional Hospital, Frisbie Memorial Hospital, Exeter Hospital, General Electric, and the Suncook Valley Sun were among the high level sponsors for this event.  More than 50 volunteers came together during race day and behind the scenes to orchestrate a successful race, with a primary mission of raising funds and awareness for suicide prevention, education, and implementation of proven mental health initiatives.


This year’s major beneficiary was Seacoast Pathways, a clubhouse model outpatient organization that provides an array of mental health services to support mental illness recovery including: job training, mentorship, peer support, purposeful work, and performing community service projects together, just to name a few.  The clubhouse operates on evidence based principals that everyone “needs to be needed” in a community and strives to engage its members in a supportive environment to foster wellness.  It’s a proven model that gets results as members achieve personal goals of going back to school, obtaining jobs, and resuming normal social interactions.


On 9/9/16 Willow’s Run presented Seacoast Pathways with a check for $10,000.00 which they will use to provide more services to more people. Willow’s Run also donated $1000.00 to Coe Brown Northwood Academy so the school based NAMI (National Alliance of Mental Illness) initiatives to prevent suicide and educate students that began last year can continue and expand.


Willow’s Run Board members and volunteers are very grateful to any individual and business who contributed in any way, making this year’s efforts so successful.  Our hope is these funds will allow access to services that will ultimately change and save lives as we continue to tell our story and erase the stigma that prevents important conversations about suicide and mental health from occurring.  If you would like more information on how you can get involved next year please visit our website: and like our Facebook page for updates.  If you or someone you love is having a mental health crisis please call 1-800-273-TALK.

Car Wash To Support The Suicide Prevention Foundation


Coe-Brown seniors Noah Wojtkowski and Ethan Barbeau will be hosting a car wash on September 24, 2016 from 10:00am to 2:00pm.

The Suicide Prevention Foundation provides services and aid to those whom have experienced loss due to suicide. Donations of any amount will be accepted for a clean car.  The event will be held at Northwood Garage, 258 1st NH Turnpike Northwood NH.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is dedicated to saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide. AFSP creates a culture that’s smart about mental health through education and community programs, develops suicide prevention through research and advocacy, and provides support for those affected by suicide.



Letter To The Editor


Having just lost my primary race for State Rep, I first and foremost wanted to thank those who voted for me. Having spoken to probably all who did, I appreciate the extra effort to write me in and the shared concern for many important issues. Unfortunately many who also expressed these concerns didn’t vote. Oh well.


I surprised  myself in that what troubles me more than losing is what voting means or doesn’t mean to people. Probably because I was a candidate, I paid a bit more attention to the characteristics of the vote. I was surprised AND saddened. Quite frankly, many who voted did so without any awareness of who or what issues they were voting for, merely casting their valuable vote for a name on a line. This is really not new, it’s just that I especially paid attention to it. I’m sure it applied in various ways to other candidates and in many past elections.


A last  thought.  Of those I talked to, many expressed grave concerns for what can only be described as the future of American democracy. We all have to try harder if it is to be conserved. The solution won’t be found in a single vote this coming November. A lot of extra effort will be needed by all who care for many years going forward. The price of Liberty is eternal vigilance, a wise man said, and a lot of us haven’t been paying attention.


That said, I would like to thank again those who made the effort to vote for me.


Joseph McCaffrey
