More Uncertainty for Opening Date of LA Fitness in Herndon

LA Fitness announced nationwide closures on Monday (March 16) amid the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

The closures leave the opening date of the Herndon location, which has been delayed by several months, increasingly uncertain.

The manager of the future Herndon location says that the preview center will reopen on April 1. But the situation is entirely fluid. He hopes to have an estimate soon on when the grand opening will take place.

That could becoming increasingly unlikely. Yesterday (Tuesday), Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam ordered a 10-person cap at restaurants, fitness center, and theaters. Although the order comes short of closing all gyms, restaurants and theaters, the respective industries are expected to take a hit.

“I hope that everyone will have the common sense to stay home tonight and in the days ahead,” said Governor Northam. “This order will ensure that state and local officials have the tools they need to keep people safe.

Gold’s Gym locations, including the one in Plaza America, also closed nationwide through March.
