Boston Sports Club South End to close


Earlier this morning The Boston Sports Club notified members that they have “made the difficult decision to close our South End location permanently. The last day to work out inside this club will be March 31st.”

I first wrote about this possibility in January in my post Is the Boston Sports Club South End closing? What remains to be seen is what happens next? In my January post I speculated one of two likely options. The first would be for another fitness chain to come in and rent the space, but the other option which I think is likely would be for the landlord, GTI Properties to overtake and manage it much like they are doing with two former Aquitaine Group restaurant spaces (Gaslight and Cinquecento).

Stay tuned for more details.  

UPDATED March 2, 2022 at 5:00PM: GTI Properties announces they will reopen this space in the fall as a health and wellness facility that will have at least 5 studios and offer a variety of classes. The facility will be eliminating the pool and reusing the space for group fitness classes. More details about rates, membership and opening dates will be forthcoming in the summer.

  1. The pool is the best i’ve experienced in the area. Too bad GTI will eliminate it. Of course, as a 30 year resident of the neighborhood, I gotta say, GTI went from being a friendly neighbor to an aggressive one (staff included). GTI’s SOWA used to feel like a part of the neighborhood – now its just the parking lot thats fenced off with no trees and aggressive security guards at night. I guess i will feel happy to no longer have a reason to support them.


  2. Good riddance. Let’s hope a more reputable gym goes in.
