LIVERMORE -- South Livermore will soon have a new 24-hour fitness center, likely by the spring.

The Livermore Planning Commission on Jan. 7 approved a conditional use permit for an Anytime Fitness in the Lucky shopping center, at the northwest corner of Holmes Street and Concannon Boulevard.

The family-owned, 5,300 square-foot facility will occupy existing vacant buildings and include cardio and strength machines, free weights and a multi-purpose room for fitness classes, said co-owner Darren Leggett.

"We want to get to know everyone and keep it a community-based gym," Leggett said.

Livermore will be the sixth Anytime Fitness location in the East Bay, joining others in Concord, Brentwood, Alameda, Berkeley and Newark. Leggett said he plans on opening another in Pleasanton at a future date.
