(The Chronicle-Independent celebrates Black History Month in February with a series of stories on area businesses owned and operated by African-Americans, starting with Fitness Zone in Lugoff and owner George Gibson.) To operate a successful business for nearly 15 years is what many would say is a notable accomplishment, especially when the service the business provides is not considered an absolute necessity in most circles. George Gibson has owned and operated Fitness Zone, 814 Hwy. 1 South, Lugoff, for nearly 15 years. He settled in Kershaw County after retiring from the U.S. Navy with the rank of captain in 1996.
