Fresh from opening new fitness centers in Sparks and Reno, the
company developing Gold's Gym in Northern Nevada has its sights on northern
Westfit LLC, which holds the area development rights for Gold's,
plans a 12,000-square-foot fitness center at Clear Creek Plaza, just across the
Douglas County line at the south edge of Carson City.
The company expects the center to be open by Jan. 1, said Brad
Kloss, owner of Westfit.

Longley Lane in Reno a year ago or its 45,000-square-foot center recently opened

It will include fitness equipment, classes and children's
programming, said Kloss, but won't include the swimming pools, basketball courts
and other facilities of larger Gold's Gym locations.
Like the Reno and Sparks locations, the Carson City fitness
center will look to make ties with the community.
The grand opening of the Sparks location a few days ago, for

Nevada, Make-A-Wish Foundation and other groups.
"We want to be a part of the community, instead of being apart
from it," said Kloss.

said. That will bring the company's total employment in the region to about 100.
