A new upscale gym plans to open this January, as part of the Eighth and Main building under construction in Downtown Boise.

The gym, Zenergy Boise, is owned by a local private equity group, headed by managing partner Derek Agnew, who runs the Zenergy gym in Sun Valley.

"Down in Boise, we're striving to have an extremely luxurious club that has a high level of guest service," Agnew said.

The Zenergy spa will be open to nonmembers, but spa services will be full-priced, while members will get a discount.

Agnew gave the following details in a recent interview.

Membership: For now, it's capped at 1,000 members

Rates: $400 to $500 for initiation, then $85 to $95 per month

Included: Towel service, toiletries such as shaving cream and deodorant in the men's locker room, vanity areas with flat irons and hair dryers in the women's locker room.

Who will join: Agnew predicts a lot of the employers in the Eighth and Main building and nearby will be interested in corporate memberships, which will have lower initiation and monthly rates.

On site: Spa rooms, a boutique selling clothing and other gear. Physical-therapy patients of the Idaho Sports Medicine Institute will have free access to workout areas to help them keep up with treatments.

Exercise equipment: Includes kinesis stations, free weights, recumbent and upright bikes that allow a user to swipe a keycard and pull up previous workouts or plug in a phone to pull up music or social-media accounts.

Personal training: The gym offers its members group training, led by a certified trainer, at no extra cost. Groups are usually 12 to 14 people. One-on-one personal training will be available separately.

Extras: Weekend workshops, such as yoga or guest speakers.

Guest passes: Four free passes, then $20 per day for each guest

Gym manager: Yvette Hubbard.
