Fitness Edge owner Joanna Dunn said the gym was shut down without warning.
cannot talk to her
clients because everything, including her
contact list, computer and $350,000 worth of gym equipment, is inside the club and she
cannot access it.
is considering legal action to get her
empathizes with concerned clients but has been legally cautioned to not say too much.
"We're absolutely going to court about this," said Dunn
"I'd love (clients) to understand we're doing everything that we can to re-open the gym as quickly as we can.
In no case have I skipped town with everyone's money."
, who has owned the gym for more than a decade, said her
five-year lease on the Nicol Street property ended in October.
There were no discussions about renewals with the landlord but Dunn
has paid rent since, although she
might be "a little behind."
On Wednesday morning, the landlord, seen entering the gym, declined to comment on the situation.
is also looking for another location to open the gym and plans to reimburse members if that never happens.
Let's hope that Joanna
can make this work for all her
The gym is great, it's fully equiped, the trainers are great, there's lots of space, the location is perfect for those who work in the downtown area, there are just too many pluses here to see it close.
I for one will keep my fingers crossed that it will reopen, hopefully in the same location.

I just dropped $800 on the boot camp and so did 30 others... So Joanna
just walked away with $24,000 so there is NO REASON she
should be a "bit behind in rent".... from what i hear now there has been alot of shady business with partners and with other businesses.
I certainly hope all the members band together and sue her
as a united force and that another gym welcomes these disgrunted clients with open arms.
