Island City Fitness Officially Changes Hands

WILTON MANORS — On February 1, Reece Darham, Managing Director and previous owner of Island City Health and Fitness (ICHF) announced that he has sold his remaining interest in the gym and fitness club to Ken Hunt, the owner of New York City-based Steel Gym, who had purchased an ownership stake in the popular facility last year.

According to an email from Darham, “Effective immediately, Steel Gym Fort Lauderdale will be the sole property of Ken Hunt, complimenting Steel Gym Miami and Steel Gym NYC.”

“It has been so wonderful to be part of this vibrant community both as a business owner and community leader,” said Darham, a South Africa native who ran the health club under its ICHF brand for more than four years.

“The gym and the [Rainbow Business Coalition, of which he served as founding Co-Chair] have been such a significant part of my life the past few years, however, it is time for me to pursue other business interests that need my full attention,” Darham explained. “I am proud to leave Steel Gym Fort Lauderdale in very good hands.”
