About Us

Otter Fitness Garage is a membership based fitness center located in downtown Ottertail, MN.  We offer a complete line of free weights, fitness machines and equipment for almost any type of workout.  We also have a large group classroom, private bathrooms & showers, TVs, free wifi, a members lounge and more.  The facility is open 24-7 with key card access for our Members.  You should join us!


We are located in the former Weibe's Garage which was built in 1927 and successfully operated for 90 years under the father-son team of Fred and Delmer Weibe.  In 2018 we completely rebuilt this structure true to the original design and today Otter Fitness Garage is a modern, convenient space that benefits our Members and the greater Ottertail community we hold so dear.
