Burn Boot Camp buys office in Cornelius for headquarters

June 3. By Dave Vieser. Burn Boot Camp, a nationwide exercise franchise designed specifically for women, has purchased a 20,000 square foot building at 17036 Kenton Drive for $3.15 million. The building, formerly occupied by Carolina Woman, will be Burn Boot Camp’s U.S. headquarters. Owners Devan and Morgan Kline, who have 300 fitness centers around the country in some three dozen states, expect to reach 1,000 franchise locations in the next few years.



“This is a spectacular move for Burn Boot Camp. This new location has plenty of parking and room for outdoor activities and the gym is beautiful,” said broker and real estate attorney Kimberly Thaxton. Burn Boot Camp’s rented office space on Gilead Road will be closed.

Burn Boot Camp was founded by the Klines in 2014. The first Burn Boot Camp was held five years ago in a parking lot. After the business beefed up in Charlotte—there are also locations in Pineville, Matthews, Concord and Steele Creek—the Klines took the concept nationally.
