Shock as city gym closes

THOUSANDS of staff and members are pondering their next move after a rent row caused the sudden closure of Lancaster’s Total Fitness gym.

The gym on Lancaster Business Park, Caton Road, closed on Tuesday evening. Staff were asked to stand at the entrance to give members the bad news as they arrived – just minutes after being told they had lost their jobs. A notice on the door of the gym apologised for the closure.

About 4,000 members now face an anxious wait to find out if their membership fees will be refunded.
