A global fitness concept is coming to Hackensack after leasing space at Summit Plaza, an 88,000-square-foot retail complex owned by Alfred Sanzari Enterprises.
In a news release, the landlord said F45 Training is taking 2,749 square feet at the Stop & Shop-anchored property, which sits at 370-380 West Pleasantview Ave. The site is among the newest locations for the franchise, which specializes in circuit and high-intensity interval training workouts, boasting more than 1,750 studios across 45 countries.
David Greenman of Silbert Realty and Gary Krauss of Pierson Commercial represented the landlord and tenant, respectively.
“One of the leading causes of people opting to avoid the gym is a lack of approachable options within a reasonable distance of their home,” said Tara Levitt, senior director of operations of Club Sports Group, the owner-operator of the Summit Plaza F45 franchise. “Summit Plaza’s location within Hackensack and its easy access points to the surrounding highways affords us the opportunity to reach a large number of residents and ultimately provide the community with a fun, unique training experience that can improve their health and wellbeing.”
Other tenants at Summit Plaza include Trinity Rehab, GNC, Harmon Face Values, Great Expressions Dental Centers and Labcorp, benefiting from a location at the intersection of Route 17 and Interstate 80.
“As Hackensack continues to focus on redevelopment, we see a corresponding need for goods and service providers nearby the growing population,” said Steve Jennings, vice president of leasing and marketing for Alfred Sanzari Enterprises. “Summit Plaza’s strategic location and diverse array of tenants make it the ideal location for these tenants and we’re proud to bring this premier fitness community to Hackensack.”
