Richfield LA Fitness Opens Early

The new health club opened its doors to the public Wednesday.

Richfield's newest business opened its doors nearly a full month ahead of schedule Wednesday.

LA Fitness, which is located on the site of the former Kmart store in the Lyndale Station development, is a full-service athletic club that offers a variety of equipment types, including free weights, cardio machines, dumbells and plate machines. In addition, personal training services and group fitness classes (such as yoga) are also offered. Other amenities include a basketball court, saunas in each locker room, a three-lane lap pool, four racquetball courts, a spa, Kids Klub and a juice bar.

Site developer Steve Wellington, of Wellington Management Inc., had originally not expected the club to open until Nov. 1.

The redeveloped site will also house two other retail and restaurant complexes. One is currently under construction, with the other likely to begin next spring. Negotiations are still underway with interested tenants. No names of potential tenants have been made public.

For more information on LA Fitness class offerings and memberships, call the club directly at 612-861-5505. For more information on redevelopment projects in Richfield, visit Richfield Patch's Redevelopment topic page.

Monday through Thursday: 5 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Fridays: 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Saturdays and Sundays: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The new LA Fitness is really nice. They equipment is awesome. Can't wait for aqua-fit classes to start. So nice to have a club so close to home. I was suprised to see so many people there, but I did recongize people from some of the other local clubs (Edina, Uptown). I imagine a lot of South Minneapolis members will switch from the Uptown location to Richfield because it's bigger, newer, and has all the amenities (Uptown doesn't have a pool, whirlpool, raquetball, or basketball court).
