Gold’s Gym Adds Two New Facilities in Alamo City

By Camelia Bulea, Associate Editor

Gold’s Gym International continues to add new fitness facilities in growing San Antonio areas. The company recently announced plans to open two new gyms, totaling 103,000 square feet of space, adding to the 20 locations it already operates in the Alamo City.

The Venice, Calif.-based firm broke ground on a 54,000-square-foot facility at the Legacy Trails shopping center late last year and expects to open it for business later this summer. The gym will feature more than 15,000 square feet of outdoor space, including a lap and wellness pool and a basketball court.

The second facility, which the company expects to open for business at the beginning of the next year, will be located at the southeast corner of Loop 1604 and Culebra, also on the far West Side, according to the San Antonio Business Journal. The 49,000-square-foot Culebra location will also feature premium outdoor exercise space, including a 5,500-square-foot swimming pool, according to a company statement. Construction will start early this summer.

“We are very bullish on San Antonio,” said Jim Snow, president of Gold’s Gym International. “We look forward to growing with the San Antonio community for years to come.”

A year ago, GGI acquired 11 Spectrum Athletic Club locations in the San Antonio area, which quickly became the biggest market in its corporate portfolio and the second biggest Gold’s Gym market in the country, behind Washington, D.C.
