Is VASA Fitness open 24 hours a day?
So, what about VASA FItness? Are they open 24-hours-a-day?
Sorry! Not a single VASA Fitness location is open all night. That's right: of their 50 gyms open nationwide, not a single one is open 24/7.
Should VASA be open 24 hours?
Absolutely—and we're wondering why it isn't already offered by them. We don't think every gym chain should have 24/7 hours just because it's a nice to have, we look at their entire package of offerings and see if there is a fit.
In VASA's case, we think all-night-hours fits quite nicely. As a younger and upcoming gym chain, they've been growing at an awesome pace. New locations are clean, bright and full of amenities. Their HVLP (high-value-low-price) model shows that a stellar gym experience can be had for a great price.
You put this all together and see a wonderous gym chain that offers almost everything to their members... except 24/7 hours. Is it on the horizon for VASA? We have no idea—but we certainly wouldn't be surprised to see it happen.
Why isn't VASA Fitness open 24 hours a day?
We're not exactly sure why VASA Fitness doesn't, but here are a few things they would need to consider:
- Would enough people show up? Generally there isn't a huge number of folks who workout in the middle of the night. This is the most important.
- Are there any permits, rules or regulations are needed? Usually the city/county has specific rules on business operating hours.
- Can they adequately staff and resource itself for 24-hour operations? That means front desk staff, managers/supervisors, janitorial and more.
- How can they safely operate in the event of an emergency or medical issue? What about fire, theft, earthquake or a storm?
In this case for VASA, it doesn't look like they found a gym that could satisfy these (and many more) requirements.
What time does VASA open?
While the exact times will differ for every location, the most common opening hours we've seen are:
- Monday: 5:00 AM – 11:00 PM
- Tuesday: 5:00 AM – 11:00 PM
- Wednesday: 5:00 AM – 11:00 PM
- Thursday: 5:00 AM – 11:00 PM
- Friday: 5:00 AM – 9:00 PM
- Saturday: 7:00 AM – 7:00 PM
- Sunday: 7:00 AM – 7:00 PM
VASA's operating hours are pretty standard compared to their competition. That 7:00 AM starting time on the weekends is also quite good—we've seen others at 8:00 AM.
Final words with VASA Fitness
The popular gym chain unfortunately does not have any locations that are open 24/7. While we know there are multiple things that need to go right to offer this amenity, we believe that VASA could make it work! Time will tell.
