A Houston-based gym chain with an affordable membership is planning its first location in San Antonio. 

Fitness Connection plans to open a South Park location at SW Military Drive, Suite 2003, according to a recent filing with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. 

Fitness Connection will renovate a 73,135-square-foot space for an estimated $4.5 million with construction expected to start in February and finish in August. As always, details in TDLR filings are subject to change. 

On top of a general fitness area, Fitness Connection members also have access to racquetball courts, saunas and a basketball court, all for a down payment of $10 and $10 a month. 

The gym chain was purchased by Roark Capital Group in February 2019. It currently has over 31 locations in Texas and 10 more in states like Nevada and North Carolina.
