From French fries to flab fighting: Old McDonald’s could do CrossFit, bro

The McDonald’s restaurant on Apple St. in Boise closed in late 2015 – much to the chagrin of Timberline HS students.

For nearly two years, the building sat vacant – still owned by McDonald’s Corporate.

Now, permits into the City of Boise indicate the property will help folks burn calories instead of consuming them.

Maria Aragon de Gonzales applied to revamp the 3,735 square foot building for a health and fitness facility. De Gonzales operates Arbor CrossFit, which currently provides fitness services in a warehouse on Highland St. in Boise.

De Gonzales is one of the top 500 CrossFit athletes in the country, and opened Arbor CrossFit in 2013. The Conditional Use Permit application says her company, Virtus Service LLC, is “interested in purchasing the property.”

Plans show the majority of the interior of the building removed with a large open fitness area in its place.
