Workouts Fitness Center Leased To Gold’s Gym

As of Tuesday, the Workouts fitness center on Harrisburg Pike has been leased to the Gold's Gym franchise of York. Gold's franchisee, Kurt Kreiger, plans a $1.7 million upgrade for the East Hempfield center, which adjoins the Golden Meadows swimming pools on Harrisburg Pike.

Workout owners Don Anderson and Mike Kellam leased the 41,000- square-foot building to Gold's, hoping to take the gym "to the next level."

Gold's expects to spend more than $1 million for new equipment that will begin to arrive in October. Plans also have been made for a four-lane lap pool, a cardio-cinema room and a women-only workout room. All 15 Workouts employees have been offered jobs at Gold's, where the staff is expected to reach 30 to 40 employees in the coming months.
