“Primo Fitness will be relocating its entire operation from Santa Ana, Calif. to the new location in Fresno, Texas,” a Colliers press release said.
“As a supplier of high-end fitness equipment, Primo’s business has grown quickly across the state of Texas. Texas’ business-friendly atmosphere along with the lower cost of living made a very compelling case for Primo’s relocation,” said Jason Scholtz of Colliers. “Their new location is also located a short distance from Pearland, Missouri City, and Manvel which all provide attractive housing, amenities, and a strong and talented labor pool.”
Primo Fitness sells a wide variety of gym equipment including treadmills, indoor cycles, stepmills, spin bikes, strength machines and recumbent bikes.
Its customers include gyms, schools, personal training studios, police and fire departments, hotels, condos, apartments and corporate gyms.

The Primo Fitness site is west of Highway 288, near FM 521, between the Sienna and Shadow Creek Ranch master planned communities. The town of Fresno reported was named by a settler who relocated to the area from Fresno, Calif. over 120 years ago. Fresno’s first post office opened in 1910.
The property is located in what Colliers calls Houston’s “Southwest Far” industrial submarket. The submarket contains 22.9 million SF of industrial space, which is currently 91.3 percent occupied and the average asking market rental rate is $8.66 per SF.
Construction of warehouse and distribution buildings in the Far Southwest area has been strong as it is across Houston. More than 1.3 million SF of new industrial buildings have been delivered in the past 12 months and there is an additional 941,000 SF of industrial space currently under construction in the submarket.
