New LA Fitness open on Staten Island

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — After months of delay, LA Fitness in Forest Avenue Shopper’s Town, Port Richmond, is open.

The gym opened on Tuesday at noon to a crowd of anxious new members who say they have been waiting months for the gym to open.

“I’m happy for our customers,” said James O’Sullivan, director of development for Fitness International LLC.

“There were a few delays, but I’m happy that we are open and it joins our other two clubs on Staten island. We’re excited,” he added.

He noted there will be a grand opening ceremony in the future.


The 34,000-square-foot gym includes a three-lane lap pool, locker rooms, and separate aerobics, personal training and cycling studios, said O’Sullivan.

There also are cardio, free weight, and circuit training areas, as well as a kid’s club, he said.

The gyms hours are: 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday; Friday 5 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
