Boost Fitness plans to open a Tewksbury location around Labor Day.
WOW Fitness failed in that location. Even a name change to Blast Fitness didn't help.
But the owners of Boost Fitness believe they can build a successful fitness business at 553 Main St., Tewksbury, next to Ocean State Job Lot.
Boost Fitness, a Hudson-based chain of fitness centers, has announced it will open its seventh fitness center in Tewksbury around Labor Day weekend. The facility would be open 24 hours a day.
Other Boost clubs are based in Auburn, Northboro, Hudson, Oxford, Westford and Worcester.
“One benefit of our multiple locations is that members can use any of our clubs, 24 hours a day,” said owner Mark Federico. “In addition to convenience, we offer fitness classes, personal trainers and the latest equipment. As a result, we’ve grown and are now the largest independent chain in central Massachusetts. Middlesex County is a natural extension of our expanding market.”
A traffic light being installed on Route 38 will improve access to the club, according to Federico.
Federico said the size of Boost Fitness is an advantage to his business, as well as to club members. Boost has been in business for about a decade and is big enough to provide members with stability, unlike smaller clubs, but it is also small enough to respond to member needs and provide more personal attention than large chains.
Federico decided to locate in Tewksbury, because he believes the area is underserved and because a prime location was available. To date, membership pre-sales are high, he said. Anyone interested in joining the Tewksbury club can sign up online for as little as $9.99 at www.myboostfitness.com.
The 20,000-square-foot Tewksbury club, which will employ 25 to 30 people, will feature a large exercise room for group classes, a cross-training area and a room for spin, an exercise using stationary bicycles.
