RICHMOND, Virginia — Fitness equipment maker Core Health & Fitness is planning to invest $2 million to expand a Grayson County manufacturing plant, creating 250 jobs.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced plans Wednesday to expand the former Med-Fit operation that has made Nautilus fitness equipment for more than 34 years.

Vancouver, Washington-based Core Health & Fitness says it will continue to make Nautilus equipment as well as other fitness equipment brands such as Star Trac and StairMaster.

The governor's office says Virginia successfully competed against California and China for the project.

McAuliffe approved a $350,000 grant from the Governor's Opportunity Fund for the project. The Virginia Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization Commission approved about $1 million for the project.
