Reston, VA

The opening of LA Fitness in Herndon Centre has been delayed to March.

This is not the first time the opening date of the fitness gym, which will open in Herndon Centre (494 Elden Street), has been pushed back.

Last year, the business was expected to open Jan. 16, a few weeks earlier than originally anticipated. Then, the gym announced it would open sometime in early 2020.

Now, the Kristhian Reyes, the general manager of the location, says the “best-case scenario” is that the gym will open by the beginning of March. In any case, he hopes the gym will be up and running by the end of next month.

“We understand everyone’s concerns on our opening date, but some things have been out of our hands,” Reyes said.

The delay was caused by delays in the permitting and inspection process, according to the general manager.

“We have people working 5 a.m. to 12 a.m. seven days a week trying to make sure the gym gets finished as quickly as possible now,” Reyes said.

Anyone who already signed up to use the facility will have access to other LA Fitness locations in the area.

Editor’s note: A press release from the company previously misstated a location was planned at Reston Station.

Australian fitness company F45 Training will open a location in Reston Town Center, according to a company news release.

F45 Training plans to open at 11840 Freedom Drive in Reston Town Center by May this year.

Here’s more from the company about the expansion in Reston:

The rapid growth of F45 Training indicates that F45 is filling the gap left in the fitness industry by traditional gyms, where members commit to a cheap membership fee to work out individually, but pay for high-cost personal training sessions.

“We are very excited to have F45 Training as a part of Reston,” says Tariq Mojadidi, Studio Manager of F45 Reston Town Center and F45 Reston Station. “What we will bring to the Reston community is very unique and unlike anything else that is offered in terms of boutique fitness. F45 offers a unique concept, where personal training is offered in a group team environment, and trainers will work with you to correct your form, prevent injuries and offer nutritional support. The concept is a perfect fit for the Reston community.”

F45 Training combines elements of three separate cutting-edge fitness training styles: High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Circuit Training, and Functional Training. The blend of these three training concepts offers a variety of different 45 minute workout experiences, keeping F45 members challenged, eager to grow and set to have fun. This combination of cardiovascular, strength and resistance training has been proven to be most effective in burning fat and building lean muscle.

The business will begin offering limited memberships on March 1. Membership reservations — which include discounted month-to-month rates — are available online.

F45 also plans to open a location in South Riding in April.

A new fitness center devoted to children’s health is setting its eyes for a location in Reston.

My Gym, which offers programs that help children six weeks through 10 years of age to develop physically, plans to open in Reston within the next year, according to the owner of the company’s Vienna location.

The business, which has locations in more than 30 countries, celebrated its grand opening this week. It has another location in Tysons and also plans to expand to Ashburn.

Here’s more from the company:

Our programs focus on growth in all three categories because we view each step of development in these areas as an essential “building block” toward becoming a happy, healthy, well-adjusted human being.
