San Antonio’s gym scene is adding extra weight with the opening of a new athletic brand club on Zarzamora. The artery of the Southside is now home to a Tru Fit Athletic Club. The Texas-based chain of gyms replaces a Gold’s Gym that was housed in the shopping center at the corner of S.W. Military and Zarzamora for 25 years.
Gold’s announced at the end of 2021 that the location would permanently close on December 2 because the landlord opted to not renew the lease. Since then, Tru Fit has been reworking the space to become a 40,000-square-foot fitness center. The location officially opened on Tuesday, May 10. Tru Fit also operates a gym further east at 165 S.W. Military Drive.
