Work Out World Opening in November in Foxborough

Work Out World plans to open on Nov. 7 in Foxborough.

Work Out World (WOW) hung their banner on the former Bradlees building, officially announcing their presence in Foxborough back in March of 2011.

WOW, a fitness chain founded in New Jersey, is just about ready to officially occupy a 20,000-square-foot portion of the vacant Bradlees building on Commercial Street.

WOW will join neighboring businesses Ocean State Job Lot, Dunkin Donuts, and Personal Best Karate.

The fitness chain plans to open Monday, Nov. 7 in Foxborough.

I can't wait I hope its sooner than later! I love the norwood loc but not convenient for me anymore. I was going to.switch to somewhere else but now don't have to

Does anyone have any idea when WOW will be opening up in Foxboro?
Courtney Jansson March 29, 2011 at 10:10 PM
WOW has yet to determine an official opening date. I will post it as soon as I hear!

I just cancelled my Norwood WOW membership, cannot believe the woman did not tell me a Foxboro location was opening.
Elaine Gildred April 08, 2011 at 03:14 PM
I emailed WOW to ask when they would be opening in Foxboro. They plan to start construction in September and hope to be open within a few months after that!

I think it's wonderful--and about time! I always love it when a perfectly good, but empty, building gets revitalized and put to good use. I'm all for commerce. AND for fitness. Janet Parkhurst

when is this going to happen
Elaine Gildred May 16, 2011 at 06:26 PM
Don, WOW informed me that they hope to start construction in September, and hope to be open a few months after that .

Why has WOW removed the signs on the property in Foxboro if they are going to start constuction. Have they changed their mind about opening in the Bradlee's plaza.
Elaine Gildred May 24, 2011 at 03:38 PM
I am hoping the sign got blown away and is on top of the building..hope its still going to happen!

Go in and join now. Pre Sale has started!!
Elaine Gildred August 14, 2011 at 12:56 AM
Candy do they have an official date of opening yet? I am already a member in Norwood, do I need to transfer over to Foxboro or can I just go in?

I think having a WOW in Foxboro is a good thing for the town, it offers a healthier more fit lifestyle at a fraction of the cost of some of the other local health clubs.

Glad to hear this! Great location. Hope it'll have a good yoga class like Norwood.
Debra Shaw Sabourin September 15, 2011 at 04:49 PM
In case anyone is wondering I was told they would be opening September 21st. I hope this is the case because I really need to get to the gym, of course it will probably be mobbed the first day but oh well!
Courtney Jansson September 15, 2011 at 06:03 PM
Heard it was pushed back until October 1!
Elaine Gildred September 16, 2011 at 02:40 AM
yes my husband and I stopped by there this weekend, they hope to be open Oct !st!
Debra Shaw Sabourin September 19, 2011 at 02:48 PM
BOO! I was really hoping that it would be open this week. *Sigh* Off to Norwood...AGAIN!
Elaine Gildred October 13, 2011 at 07:47 PM
Well seems they are stalling on opening. We stopped in and was informed they would be open middle of Oct. Stopped in yet again and was told it would be another couple of weeks.... so who knows?

I'm getting a bit tired of waiting. But the thing that is borderline p'ing me off is that they are blaming the delay on hurricane Irene. Yes, the power in Foxboro may have been out for a few days but that was almost 8 weeks ago. The opening is now more than 3 weeks overdue with no opening date in sight. I think it's way past time that WOW make a detailed statement about what is causing the delay, with specifics like: What construction is left to be completed. The status of the equipment. Has it been ordered? Where is it? Have they really ordered it?
Elaine Gildred October 14, 2011 at 12:32 AM
The equipment is certainly not in the building yet! Wouldn’t it be nice to just have some honesty?
Stephanie October 19, 2011 at 04:07 AM
I understand everyone is anxious but remember anything can happen during construction. If you have ever built a house the slightest thing can cause a huge delay. They told us the "target" date was the 21st of September. They are not that far off and they never guaranteed the grand opening to be on that day. You should check out one of the other WOW's just to see what it is like. I went to the East Taunton WOW...it is GREAT!! I could not believe how much equipment it has and how clean! The atmosphere was awesome! In a couple of weeks we'll forget all about the delay and will be enjoying a great club!

I am happy to hear of WOW opening. I've been a member of the Foxboro Y for 7 years and have seen nothing but price increases every year. It would be great to have something affordable and have the insurance pay for all of it.
Debra Shaw Sabourin November 03, 2011 at 03:55 PM
Anyone else having the issue of joining and getting charged the monthly fee but its not open yet? I know someone who is having this issue.
Julie November 03, 2011 at 06:44 PM
Not too sure why you would cancel a WOW membership in Norwood, you can go to any WOW once you are a member. Our family signed up at the Foxboro WOW and my son has been going to the Norwood one to get started. They plan on opening Foxboro Monday Nov 7th
Debra Shaw Sabourin November 03, 2011 at 08:34 PM
Who said anything about canceling a membership? I am a member of WOW and have been going to Norwood over a year now. But I know someone who signed up at the Foxboro location (with no intention of traveling to Norwood). I am not sure if they were told her in interim that she could use the Norwood location, but in either case they took her membership and then started charging her before she could use that gym.
Elaine Gildred November 08, 2011 at 12:46 AM
Had my first work out today at WOW. Very nice place!!!
Cindy Khalifa November 08, 2011 at 07:01 PM
It's open already. How much does it cost?
Elaine Gildred November 10, 2011 at 07:37 PM
The cost is 10.00 a month for basic or 20.00 a month for platinum. Platium allows you to take classes, such as spinner, zumba, kettle bells yoga etc
Krysten February 21, 2012 at 05:15 PM
Is there a website for this gym?
