LA Fitness to begin reopening gyms starting Thursday

TUCSON (KVOA) - Pima County residents who have been craving to pump some iron and work up a sweat may have a place to go soon after LA Fitness announced Wednesday that it will begin opening its gyms across Arizona on Thursday.

Back on June 29, Gov. Doug Ducey made the decision to close gyms, bars, nightclubs, water parks and tubing about a month after Arizona's first Stay-At-Home order.

After a judge ruled that Arizona gyms should have the opportunity to reopen on Aug. 4, Arizona Department of Health Services released its benchmarks counties need to reach in order to allow businesses, such as gyms and fitness clubs, to resume operations.

ADHS announced Tuesday that Pima, Pinal and Maricopa counties are projected to reach the requirements to allow indoor gyms and fitness centers to open at 25 percent capacity by Thursday.

With this new information, LA Fitness shared that is plans to start reopening its facilities that day.

At this time, LA Fitness officials have not shared at what capacity their gyms will be open or which gyms across Pima County will reopen Thursday.
