Months after packing up their weights in the Shoppes of Amberly, LA Fitness has broken ground on a new facility in Tampa Palms.
According to documents filed with the City of Tampa, LA Fitness has broken ground on a new, two-story, 35,000-sq.-ft. facility across Compton Dr. from the New Tampa Family YMCA. The new gym is located immediately behind the Chase Bank.
New Tampa Y director Monica Mirza declined to comment about the new LA Fitness location.
“We’re just going to keep doing what we’re doing and serving our community,” Mirza says.
LA Fitness moved into the space previously held by Lifestyles Family Fitness, but moved out of the building on Amberly Dr. late last year, which since has been filled by Crunch Fitness.
The site plan for the new LA Fitness was approved last December. An expected opening date has not yet been released.
