After three months of complete closures, 24 Hour Fitness is back.
The gym clubs, spanning eleven states, announced in a social media post on Monday that they’re ready to reopen in Washington on July 7. The message, however, came with the news that several clubs have had to close permanently due to the pandemic.
“We’ve looked hard at how we can best serve our members, and have refocused our resources where we believe they can do the most good,” said the company in a statement.
