LA Fitness opened its doors in Commack just in time for New Year resolutions on Dec. 15 within the King Kullen shopping center on Veteran's Memorial Highway.
The gym took over the vacant space that Borders left behind when the book store closed after filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2011.
LA Fitnesss in Commack is approximately 25,000 square feet, according to manager John Bracken. It offers members the use of state-of-the-art equipment, free weights, group fitness classes including kickbox cardio and yoga. Other amenities will include a sauna and "kid's klub" (babysitting), according to Bracken.
The company is expanding across the state. LA Fitness opened a Smithown location in October in the Branch Shopping Plaza on Main Street.
LA Fitness's new Commack location was one of four locations the national chain opened in New York between November and December of 2012. It is already in pre-sale of gym memberships for an upcoming Garden City location on Long Island, according to its website.
