MORAN ? It?s what you?d expect in a small gym. Treadmills. Squat rack. Elliptical machine.

But 54 Fitness, located in the 500-person town of Moran, still holds remnants of the building?s previous lives. Tile flooring. Booth seating. A washroom designed for rinsing off grease, not sweat.

Before becoming the town?s fitness center, the gym was a steakhouse. And before that, a gas station.
