Vasa Fitness based in Orem, Utah plans to enter the Indianapolis market at a former Kroger store in the southeast side at 5325 E. Thompson Rd., Indianapolis Business Journal (IBJ) reports.
Documents filed with the city last month indicate the company intends to build a gym with an indoor pool, basketball court, individual and group fitness areas, a massage and tanning area, a childcare area and other amenities.
“Vasa seeks out locations that are very large, and the 60,000-sq.ft. Thompson facility in Indianapolis is a perfect venue for us to transform,” Vasa CEO Rich Nelsen told IBJ in an email.
Nelsen declined to share details about the Indianapolis project, including its expected opening date and possible future expansion plans here.
Meanwhile, WLFI-TV in West Lafayette has reported that Vasa plans to open a Lafayette location in a former Marsh supermarket there.
