Frank Galloway, the gym’s general manager, said the 40,000-square-foot facility will have a soft opening between Jan. 25 and Feb. 7 with a grand opening about 30 days later.
The fitness center will feature a range of exercise options, including Pilates, tai chai, belly dancing, indoor cycling, aqua aerobics, yoga, step and kickbox cardio, and state-of-the-art equipment, including free weights.
There will be a kids club and baby-sitting services for children ages 3 months to 12 years.
The center will have a full-size basketball court, a heated lap pool, a group fitness studio, and executive-style locker rooms and saunas.
Galloway said month-to-month and discounted prepaid memberships are available. He said LA Fitness picked Lithonia because it didn’t have a gym.
“We want to get as many communities as healthy as we can,” said Galloway, who transferred from Arizona.
The gym will have 30 to 35 employees and Galloway said he will hold a job fair in mid-January for trainers, sales personnel, janitorial and maintenance workers, and child care and clerical employees.
Galloway’s office is at 6746 Covington Highway, Suite 103. For more information, visit LAFitness.com or call 770-308-0238.
