The Sportsplex Set to Close Friday – Post Updated February 22nd


According to staff, there are no plans for any gym to reopen at this location, and members who paid in advance are having their accounts reviewed for a prorated reimbursement.

Statement from The Sportsplex:

It is with a mix of emotions that we inform you that the gym will be closing its doors on Friday, February 23rd. We understand that some of you may have already heard variations of this decision, and we wanted to provide you with clarity and transparency at this time.

After careful consideration and negotiations, the sale of the Sportsplex campus is nearing its final stages, and we now feel confident in sharing this information with our members. While we know that the gym will be greatly missed, we also believe that this transition presents an opportunity for positivity within our community.

We are excited for the new owners who will be taking over the space, and we believe that a vital, thriving Texarkana business will be able to grow there. We also want to express our gratitude to our tenant, Heat-it-Up, for the partnership we’ve shared over the years, and we wish them all the best.

Twin City CrossFit will remain open for the next month at its current location. Twin City CrossFit is committed to continuing to grow their program and community, and you can stay up-to-date on their latest news and developments by following them on social media.

As we prepare for this last week at The Plex, we want to assure you that we plan to remain open for the remainder of the week. However, due to recent incidents of vandalism and theft, we will only be open during staffed hours. Staffed hours will be from 5 am – 9 pm through Thursday, February 22 and 5 am – 5pm on Friday, February 23. Please take care to get any personal belongings from the Sportsplex campus including items in lockers.

Should you have any questions or concerns about your membership during this transition, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at We are here to assist you and ensure a smooth transition during this time of change.

We want to take this opportunity to express our deepest gratitude to each and every one of you for your support and dedication over the years. It has been an honor to serve the Texarkana community, and we are proud of the positive impact we have made together.

Thank you for being a part of our gym family.

UPDATED STATMENT from The Plex Team,

Texarkana, February 22, 2024 – It is with mixed emotions that we announce the closure of The  Sportsplex, effective Friday, February 23rd, at 5:00 PM. 

For the past seven years, The Sportsplex has served as a beacon of health, wellness, and  community in Texarkana. We’ve had the privilege of working with incredible individuals – from  dedicated trainers and teachers to families and aspiring athletes. It has been an incredible journey watching individuals better themselves and making memories with their families. 

As we embark on the next chapter, we reflect on the memories shared and the impact made.  While we will miss our beloved community dearly, we are excited to pave the way for new  opportunities. We extend our best wishes to Total Medical Supply, who will be taking over the  property. We are confident that they will thrive and contribute positively to the Texarkana community. 

We are pleased to announce that Twin City CrossFit will continue to operate in the same  location for 30 days beyond our closure. We encourage everyone to support them during this  transition, join their passionate community, and stay updated on their future plans through their social media channels. 

Furthermore, we appreciate our partnership with Heat It Up, who will also continue to operate at the same location until they transition to their new premises.  

Texarkana is home to numerous family-owned fitness facilities, which are the heart and soul of  our community’s wellness landscape. We urge the community to continue patronizing these  local businesses. Without their support, these family-owned establishments cannot thrive. Your support ensures the vibrancy and sustainability of Texarkana’s fitness community. 

If any member has questions regarding their membership or any other inquiries, please  feel free to email us at 

As we bid farewell to The Sportsplex, we extend our deepest gratitude to everyone who has  supported us over the years. Your patronage has allowed us to support you, and for that, we are truly grateful. 

Thank you for being a part of our journey. 

The Plex Team
