Gold’s Gym of Ashburn had previously been located in Ashbrook Commons shopping center, but that location closed. Of the new site, Sales Manager Alex James said, “it is centrally located in Ashburn. We are easily accessible and close to the Toll Road.”
The gym began selling memberships at the beginning of the year upon completion of the 24-hour express gym. There have been a few delays in construction on the main gym, but James said that "everything has been done pretty much on schedule."
The staff and clients are very enthusiastic about the opening. Weeks before the gym opened, James couldn’t keep up with the inquiries.
“Every five minutes people are asking when the full gym will open. We are all eager and waiting,” he said.
One-year, two-year and month-to-month memberships are available.
Hours: Monday-Thursday, 4 a.m. to midnight; Friday, 4 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Saturday, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Sunday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Of course, the 24-hour express gym is open around the clock.
