at Market Square at Frederick in Frederick, MD

Potomac, Maryland, May 2, 2011. . . Vanguard Realty Group today announced a lease for Sport & Health Clubs; a 42,000 square foot facility to be constructed at Market Square at Frederick. The development is located between the intersections of Route 26 and Route 355, adjacent to Clemson Corner, which will be the future home to Regional supermarket chain Wegmans (scheduled to open June, 2010).


The Market Square deal marks the 27th location for Sport & Health, the largest health and fitness operator in the Washington DC area.  Greg Klein of Vanguard Realty Group, Sport & Health's exclusive real estate representative, notes that "For quite some time Sport & Health has recognized North Frederick as a great market and a logical extension of their presence along the I-270 Corridor.  Market Square represents a perfect match for the high-quality health club experience Sport & Health provides."


Sport & Health Clubs and Vanguard Realty Group announced a new lease in December 2010, for a 42,000 square foot facility at Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center, and in January of this year, for a 46,500 square foot facility at Heritage Hunt in Gainesville, VA.   Sport & Health continues to look for new locations, all in the Greater Washington DC area.   Sport & Health President and COO Mark Fisher adds "The Frederick market is an amazing area with a healthy, active lifestyle and a strong sense of community. This new facility will be beautiful, bearing Sport & Health's signature amenities, including state-of-the-art fitness, the latest in group exercise classes, an indoor swimming pool, basketball court, Kidz Klub and more.  It's a perfect match to our South Frederick location on Buckeystown Pike, enabling us to serve the North and South Frederick communities and extend our presence along the I-270 Corridor."
