As you may already be aware, Active Fitness was
evicted from our location on May 4, 2015 by the landlord.
We unfortunately had absolutely no notice this was
All of you deserve to know what happened, and why.
In the winter, for 4 months the landlord had agreed to
charge us half rent on the 1st, and half on the 15th, to
help us because of all the construction they were doing, and
the lost revenue because of this (approximately $100,000).
Unfortunately they did not charge us on the 15th, and
it was never caught until a few months
later. Because of the mounting losses in
revenue, we did not have the money to pay them it, and
was working on refinancing the gym, or selling to one of two
interested buyers. The landlord received a letter of
intent from one of the interested parties last week, and the
plan was to finalize the sale within the next 10 days.
Our rent was paid up until April, and we were working
on May, which was common.
We were given no notice of 'pay up or else', and this
came as a shock to all of us.
With the outstanding money owed, plus now the
bailiff's fees on top of this, we are dealing with an amount
that is way above what we can afford to pay, and
unfortunately we will not be reopening Active Fitness.
In the past 12 years, ownership has lost approximately $1
million dollars in trying to make it work.
We are trying to work with a company that may be
interested in taking over our space, and hope to know more
as soon as possible.
We are very sorry for this happening, and again we
fully did not anticipate anything like this happening.
We have setup an email address where you can email our
ownership directly. Please note that it may take time
for them to respond, but they will as soon as they can.
We thank our members for their continued loyalty, and
our amazing staff that worked with us.
