Dear Fellow Salisbury Small Business Owners,
This is a great opportunity to thank the community we have thrived in for almost 30 years. Latitude Sports Club, Salisbury is our flagship facility. Our success in Salisbury has been an integral part of our ability to grow in several other communities throughout the north shore area. We are humbled by the overwhelming support of the community and of course our members. Some of which have been members since the very beginning. That type of loyalty is rare and it is something we are extremely grateful for. Our members are our family.
Several years back, we operated our facilities as Gold’s Gym. When we started, Gold’s Gym was a formidable brand in the gym industry and still is today. However, our partnership of owners and especially our CEO, John Grossi, embraced our evolving industry. That said, our focus was more than just weight training, it was about creating facilities that brought families and people together. It was about community. It was about friendship and having a common bond with our fellow members and living a healthy life style both physically and mentally. We were no longer a gym; we became a “Club”. That was the time we decided to break away from our old brand and create our own, Latitude Sports Clubs.
Latitude, by definition, is without restraint or limitation. Our wellness approach was no longer old school one-dimensional training. Our focus was creating facilities where our members could train anyway they want. Whether you are a high level competitive athlete or a 90-year-old senior citizen, we provide the facility to accommodate all. Moreover and most importantly, we provide the professionals to get you to your fitness objective. Our goal is to get you to your goal.
Thank you Salisbury and the greater Newburyport area. You have made our brand what it is today. We hope with your support, to continue to bring you the best the fitness industry has to offer for another 30 years to come…

Salisbury, established in 1638, is one of the oldest towns in Massachusetts. There are many historical homes and sites throughout the town and was instrumental in the early overland trade routes to the north. Salisbury is an ideal vacation spot that has been a vacation destination for decades. It boasts a scenic five mile long sandy ocean beach that features modern facilities, swimming and lifeguards. It is an easy vacation commute to Boston (40 minutes), New Hampshire (10 minutes) and Maine (30 minutes). The town offers restaurants, small shops, motel or ocean front cottage rentals, weekly fireworks, concerts and many other summer activities. Salisbury is also bordered by the Merrimack River that flows into the Atlantic Ocean where one can take fishing and whale watching cruises or just take a jog, casual stroll or bike ride among the unspoiled marshes on the paved Coastal Trails Network. Lodging options include five campgrounds that collectively have over 1,000 campsites and feature wooded or sites that are directly on the beach.
