The Waltham City Council has granted Work Out World's request for extended hours and it will now open at 5 a.m.
The License & Franchise Committee recommended the council approve the new hours. Prior to Monday, Dec. 10, the fitness center's hours were 6 a.m. - 12 a.m.
The fitness center, located on on Foundry Avenue, had previously made a request to remain open 24 hours, only to be denied over concerns over traffic and noise. The company later filed a similar request to open one hour earlier at 5 a.m. and garnered community support for the move.
