LA Fitness, an operator of 44 clubs in the state of Arizona, has opened its new LA Fitness Signature Club in Gilbert, Ariz. As the first Signature Club in Arizona, the new 34,000-square-foot facility is located at 1310 S. Higley Road on the southwest corner of S. Higley Road and the Loop 202. 

The new state-of-the-art facility features many resort-style amenities, including a full basketball court, 25-yard three-lane lap pool, whirlpool spa, spacious executive-style locker rooms with digital lockers, larger showers and infrared dry sauna with complimentary toiletries and towel service, as well as a separate group exercise studio and a new HIIT by LAF studio for the club’s cutting-edge, high-intensity interval training workout, which was recently introduced nationwide. The Gilbert Signature Club is only the tenth club in the nation to offer HIIT by LAF, which is also offered at the Bell Road studio in Phoenix.

In addition to the many amenities available, the Signature Club offers a wide range of training equipment, including more than 75 pieces of the most advanced cardio equipment, complete with individual viewing screens, as well as circuit training and a free weights area. This is complemented by a variety of group fitness classes seven days a week, including Zumba®, indoor cycling, aqua fitness, kickboxing, yoga and Pilates at no extra charge. As well, the club offers personal training and babysitting services as part of membership.

“The location in one of the fastest-growing cities in the state along with the vibrant fitness-conscious community, made Gilbert the ideal choice to introduce our higher-end Signature Club to Arizona,” said Dion Gentile, LA Fitness’ regional vice president of sales and marketing. “The new club blends the best of what LA Fitness offers with more exclusive amenities than ever before to better serve members of the East Valley.” 

The new ultra-modern sports club expects to employ up to 45 people ranging from part-time group fitness instructors to full-time club staff.
