APOPKA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--24 Hour Fitness is expanding its presence in Apopka, the second largest city in Orange County, Florida. Named in 2012 by Forbes Magazine as the friendliest city in America, the city’s population topped 45,000 in 2016, increasing by more than 50 percent since 2000. By 2020, city officials expect the population projections to nearly double.
A grand opening event is scheduled for Saturday, October 28, 2017, 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., 24 Hour Fitness® Apopka Club, 2360 E. Semoran Blvd. Apopka, FL 32703. The community is invited to this free celebration, which includes club tours, prize drawings, group training demonstrations, innovative GX24® studio classes and more.
Widely recognized as a farming community, Apopka’s reputation may soon be changing with the addition of three major developments. The 25 mile long Wekiva Parkway is scheduled for completion in 2021 and will create a loop around Orlando, connecting surrounding cities, communities and businesses, offering a much-needed alternative to congested local roads. Additionally, Apopka is developing a 207,000 square foot City Center comprised of restaurants, shops and office space, and a new, $203 million Florida Hospital Apopka with 120 private-patient rooms, a 50,000-square-foot emergency department and an 80,000-square-foot medical office building. These developments will provide thousands of jobs, shopping and health and wellness resources for the growing Apopka community.

Apopka is known for its friendly and welcoming residents, and we hope to mirror that energy within the walls of our new club,” said Danny Azón, General Manager. “24 Hour Fitness offers a variety of programs and fitness solutions for every age and fitness ability.
