Carlsbad is Getting a New Fitness Club in La Costa

It won’t be long before a new fitness club will be opening in the old La Town Towne Center at the corner of El Camino Real and La Costa Avenue in South Carlsbad.

The new fitness facility is EQUINOX, a 31,000 SF luxury health club offering a wide range of services including personal training, group fitness (e.g., spinning, yoga), a spa and much more. This Equinox Club marks the debut in San Diego, serving Carlsbad and other nearby North San Diego communities;  there are 19 other Equinox clubs in Southern California, many in the LA area.

Equinox is being built in the old VONS Grocery Store building which closed some years ago, and will anchor the new shopping center called The Beacon La Costa, a 123,000 SF facility with both retail and office space in addition to Equinox; other new tenants are expected.

According to the Coast News last year the new owners of the facility, Linwood Ventures, are investing about $15M in improvements, a revitalization that has been sorely needed at this shopping center for some time, in my opinion.

The improved shopping center comes on the heels of the recently completed La Costa Town Square at the corner of La Costa Avenue and Rancho Santa Fe Road, and most recently the opening of the new Gelson’s Market in the old Albertsons Shopping Center across La Costa Avenue from The Beacon La Costa.
