Rock Hill’s Gold’s Gym acquires Omni Health and Fitness

The owner of the Gold’s Gym franchise in Rock Hill franchise has acquired Omni Health and Fitness.

Dusty Mason, owner of Carolina’s Fitness Group, said the acquisition was a natural fit because “both of our organizations are built around a strong culture of service and a brand promise of delivering an outstanding fitness experience to members.”

Terms of the sale were not released.

Gold’s Gym is developing a 38,000-square-foot location off Cherry Road in the Cherry Road Crossings Shopping Center, adjacent to the Publix grocery.

Demolition at the property has been completed, Mason said Tuesday. The new club should be open by late November or December, Mason said.

Gold’s Gym will use the Omni Health and Fitness club as a pre-sale center for the club under construction, allowing members to work out while the club is being built.

Once the new club is open, the 5,000 current members of Omni Fitness will have access to the new Gold’s Gym, Mason said. They will also have access to other Gold’s Gyms, he said.

The Omni Fitness location at 2685 Celanese Road will then be rebranded and become a Gold’s Gym low cost express model with $9.99 monthly memberships.

Current Gold’s Gym members also have access now to Omni Fitness, Mason said.

Carolina Fitness Group Inc. owns three locations in the region: Harrisburg, N.C.; Albemarle, N.C.; and the Epicentre in downtown Charlotte. The Rock Hill location will be the largest of the four owned by Mason.

“We are very excited about our opportunity in Rock Hill. It has truly become a fitness-conscious city in recent years and the demand for health and fitness services has grown rapidly,” Mason said. “This acquisition is also a testament to our enthusiasm about the city and its potential.”
