Youfit Health Club coming to Buford

BUFORD — A second Youfit Health Club is coming to northern Gwinnett.

Rick Berks, founder and owner of Youfit, has announced a new location at 3333 Buford Drive in Buford. A press release said the gym doesn’t have long-term contracts and doesn’t have a carbon footprint. The gym’s floors are made of recycled tires or sneakers. The gym is targeted for the average person, not the gym rat, Berks said.

It’s the second Youfit location to open in Gwinnett this year after Berks opened a location in Norcross in March. A Suwanee location is planned to open soon, and the company also has locations in Kennesaw and Douglasville.

“We’re building clubs for people who don’t want to deal with the trauma and drama of the usual health club,” Berks said. “You wouldn’t believe how many people tell me they have to get in shape before they’ll feel comfortable walking into a health club.”
