Atlanta-based Workout Anytime, a chain of fitness centers, is planning to open in the Shops at Hurst in January, the franchise owner said.
“It was an eight-month search. We like the community and the demographics of this area,” said franchise owner Kevin Marrs. “We are super-excited about this.”
Marrs said work should start in two to three weeks at 712 W. Pipeline Road, near the Walmart Neighborhood Market. He said the shell of the building already is in place
The equipment and services include treadmills, weights, stair-stepping machines, tanning beds and massage.
He said overall growth in Tarrant County makes Hurst a good location for the business.
A Workout Anytime gym is already open in Princeton near McKinney, and along with the Hurst location, other facilities are planned for Plano and Duncanville.
Steve Bowden, the city’s executive director of economic development said that a Planet Fitness, also under construction, is opening in the next 30-60 days in the Bellaire Shopping Center in southeast Hurst.
City leaders are focusing on revitalization in south Hurst — the Walmart Neighborhood Market opened last year and other businesses are also doing in at Shops at Hurst, once a vacant shopping center
