On its Facebook page the company’s management apologized to members and promised that current memberships will be cross-honored at an unnamed gym.
“As soon as we are legally able to share the name of this gym and details, we will provide this information to you. We urge you to wait for news from us, which will be coming shortly, before signing a new agreement elsewhere,” the gym’s Facebook page stated.
Premier Fitness’ owner Ellen Goneconti declined to comment on the closure when called about it Tuesday.
Terry Grosselfinger, director of Rockland County’s Office of Consumer Protection, said on Tuesday that his office has received about 10 calls from unhappy customers who bought memberships at the gym.
Grosselfinger said his office will investigate callers’ allegations and coordinate with state officials that license health clubs.
