IRWINDALE, Calif., May 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- PickUp USA Fitness (www.pickupusafitness.com), headquartered in Irwindale, CA, announced today that they have awarded a new franchise in Sugar Land, TX. This marks the second location in Texas for the fast-growing basketball fitness club chain, and joins the list of PickUp USA gyms in Arizona, California, Texas, and Virginia.
Founded in 2011, PickUp USA gyms are full-service fitness clubs with a focus on basketball. Their clubs offer group and private basketball training, weight and cardio rooms, lounges, locker rooms, retail merchandise, and the company's main attraction – pickup basketball with referees.
Erick Acosta and his wife, Zulma Rivera, are the owners of the new PickUp USA club in Sugar Land. Acosta, a long-time worker in the energy industry with a PhD in Chemistry, has always had a passion for fitness and basketball. When the opportunity to acquire the rights to open a PickUp USA in Sugar Land presented itself, Acosta and Rivera moved quickly. "I love the idea of offering a better way to play basketball to the Sugar Land area," says Acosta. "People that are passionate about basketball like I am will find their dreams come true with PickUp USA."
Sugar Land is one of the fastest growing cities in Texas, and has a robust fitness club scene. There are dozens of gyms in the area that cater to a wide variety of consumer gym interests. PickUp USA will be the first basketball-focused gym in the Sugar Land market, and Acosta and Rivera see a major market opportunity for their club's services. "Sugar Land provides a great opportunity, with our town's residents composed of basketball lovers with high family values, great professional backgrounds, and health-conscious minds."
Jordan Meinster, President of PickUp USA Franchise Company, shares in the optimism for the new PickUp USA location in the Houston Market. "We've had the great pleasure of getting to know Erick and Zulma, as well as their children, Erick and Andrea, during our discovery process. It's a true family endeavor for them, and we have extraordinary confidence that their new club is going to be a great fit in the Sugar Land area," says Meinster.
