Thursday morning, the Fitness US in the Frandor Shopping Center closed without warning and, without notifying their members.

According to the Lansing State Journal, the gym has been "financially troubled". And, one of the gym's members believe they may have been scammed. That member, 84-year-old Penny Ancel of Dewitt, stated that a new policy required members to pay extra for classes or they couldn't attend the class, and that management "knew [the gym] was going to close on Thursday so they tried to get as much out of us as they could." Ancel had even paid for some water aerobics classes just the day before the gym closed.

Fitness US members can still take advantage of their membership if they'd like, if they want to make the 34 mile drive to the Powerhouse gym in Owosso. Read more about it HERE
