ASCEND Youngstown

Closing February 29, 2024

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we must announce the permanent closure of ASCEND Youngstown at the end of February, 2024.

Alongside our trusted team at the Youngstown facility, we poured our hearts, sweat, and resources into trying to make ASCEND Youngstown a successful business - in addition to it being a successful community hub. Unfortunately, our best efforts were never able to yield the necessary financial results that were needed to keep the doors open for the long-haul.

We tried to pull out all of the stops: adding air-conditioning, opening earlier in the mornings, the build-out of the fitness, training, and yoga spaces, new marketing tactics and local partnerships, and ultimately a search to find a new, local operator who could take the reins from us. With no signs of the needle moving, and for the long-term sustainability of ASCEND as a whole, this difficult decision was made.

While we know this is not good news for the Youngstown community, we ask for your understanding in this decision, and we certainly ask for your grace and support of our team in Youngstown.

All other locations (South Side, Point Breeze, and Erie) will continue to operate normally.

With gratitude,




ASCEND Youngstown’s last day of operation will be Thursday, February 29, 2024. We aim to hold a small send-off celebration that evening. Details to follow.
