SALT LAKE CITY — People who exercise at 24 Hour Fitness in Utah got news this weekend that their gym is permanently closing.
The company announced it will close all of its locations in Utah.
“After much consideration, we’ve made the difficult decision to close some of our clubs, including all of our Utah locations,” read a statement sent to KSL Newsradio on Sunday.
The news came two days after 24 Hour Fitness notified its Utah employees they’d be losing their jobs.
According to the health club watchdog Club Industry, 24 Hour Fitness had 446 clubs in 14 states and 22,000 employees.
24 Hour partners with VASA
In order to fulfill its membership obligations, 24 Hour Fitness said they have “partnered with VASA Fitness to help you stay true to your goals.”
“Your membership and any personal training sessions have been transferred to VASA Fitness, a supportive and inclusive network of gyms that is well equipped to provide you with dedicated personal trainers, exciting studio classes and all you need to keep fit.
The statement indicated that 24 Hour clients can begin to work out at VASA gyms on June 17.
