Seems fitting to open a large chain fitness store. With Planet Fitness in Ardmore, this should work well to run all the local independent gyms out of business.

I like the LA Fitness idea but am concerned with the intent to make it into a 24 hour facility. "Walking" to the fitness center seems like a great idea.

I'm sure the LMPD would love the added calls resulting from a 24-hour establishment in that neighborhood.....NOT!

L A fitness would be awesome there. It will not be a 24 hour facility. You can walk to the gym and visit with neighborhood peeps! Fingers crossed!
