Does anyone know any details about this facility? Last article I read said they would be open in 2028, but that article was dated 2016. I’m curious if it is still moving forward and what it will include. I am hoping for a new large fitness center to open in the area. It says it will be located off race track road between 95 and St. John’s parkway. Anyone hear anything about it, please share. Thanks!

It's not a traditional gym from what I gather, seems more like a place where you go and meet up with a coach/trainer to get individual or group training from them. But I admit I may not be fully getting this whole concept as I am uncertain how a place like that (36,000 sq feet) could possibly sustain that limited business model. Maybe they are counting on the fact that it is indoor and too hot for this sort of thing here outside for 7-8 months out of the year?

Slated to open this summer. The building is already up:

From the outside you'd never guess this was a training facility. Looks like an ordinary office building.

The completed building I believe will house some offices....not sure what else.
First Coast Gym will actually be in the structure directly to the right of this that currently has foundation and metal beams up but won't be completed until closer to May.

Sorry, yet meant 2018. I read there was going to be a fitness center with gym equipment as well in this facility.
