Low-price gym prepares to open at former Sport Chalet space

Chuze Fitness

Chuze Fitness plans to take over the storefront along Stockdale Highway that was vacated in 2016 by Sport Chalet.

A prominent storefront next to one of Bakersfield's busiest intersections has finally been filled, six years after it was vacated, by a chain looking to break into the city's crowded market for indoor exercise venues.

San Diego County-based Chuze Fitness recently began tenant improvement work at the space formerly occupied by Sport Chalet on the north side of Stockdale Highway just east of California Avenue. Already selling monthly gym memberships starting at about $10 per month, the gym expects to open this summer.
