TOTAL fitness on Winwick road has been closed with immediate effect, bosses say.

It is not yet clear why the gym has been suddenly shut down, although in a statement officials said the building has been sold by the landlord. 

“We apologise to all of our members.

“We will refund any outstanding membership fees.

“Any members that have paid annually in advance for their memberships will be contacted directly by us and those that wish to arrange a full refund of any outstanding payments will be able to do so.

“Members are invited to transfer their membership to any other Total Fitness with a 50 per cent reduction on their membership rate for the next six months.

“Our nearest clubs are Wigan, and Altrincham.

“We again apologise for this inconvenience.”

The premises will be vacated by Thursday, September 13.
