LA Fitness’ first upscale Signature Club in Arizona has opened in Gilbert. The grand opening celebration is Saturday at the fitness club near Loop 202 and Higley Road.

A Signature Club is an “upscale” version of a typical LA Fitness with higher-level equipment, a full-size basketball court, sauna, and locker-room amenities including larger showers, digital lockers, and complimentary towel service and toiletries.

The Signature Club in Gilbert is also one of few LA Fitness clubs in the nation to offer HIIT (high-intensity interval training) classes, which is part of the brand’s “club within a club” concept.

“The new club blends the best of what LA Fitness offers with more exclusive amenities than ever before to better serve members of the East Valley,” said Dion Gentile, LA Fitness’ regional vice president of sales and marketing.

Why choose Gilbert for first Signature Club in Arizona?

Gentile cited Gilbert’s status as one of the fastest-growing cities in the state and called it a “vibrant fitness-conscious community.”

LA Fitness operates 43 clubs in Arizona, and is close to completing a large-scale remodeling effort of 21 metropolitan Phoenix and five southern Arizona locations.
