New gym opening October 1st at Retrofit location

Starting October 1st there will be a new gym opening up in the former Retrofit location in Cedar Plaza. Fitness 19, a company with around 130 locations around the country, has purchased all of Retrofit’s equipment and plans on doing a significant remodel of the space before opening up October 1st.

Retrofit closed in March of 2009 due to financial struggles. They ultimately ended up filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Fitness 19 differentiates itself from other fitness clubs by what they say is a revolutionary concept in the fitness club world: an extremely affordable, family-friendly facility that offers state-of-the-art cardio, strength and free weight equipment. One major part of the remodel will be the addition of a fully staffed kids space stocked with toys, games and a TV/DVD player.

Regular dues are $19.95 a month. If you have multiple members in your family dues get even cheaper: $9.95/month for the second person and only $5.95/mont for the third. Right Fitness 19 is having a pre-sale membership special and if you stop by their enrollment center next door to the gym, you can take advantage of discounted membership dues.

Fitness 19 has 13 other locations in Washington state including Maple Valley, Bonney Lake and Yakima. Most of the Washington State locations are open Monday-Thursday 5am-10pm, Friday 5am – 9pm and Saturday-Sunday 8am – 6pm.

  1. With the way these places come and go, I would only pay per visit. I give this one about 3 months and it will be gone too.
