People Are Upset Over This Media PA Fitness Center Closure
It’s difficult to find a gym that you enjoy going to, is convenient and affordable and open when you need it. That’s why lots of People Are Upset Over This Media PA Fitness Center Closure.
The gym at Riddle Hospital is set to close May 31, just a couple of weeks away.
Many members of this Media PA Fitness Center have let it be known that they are not happy about the news.
The gym location has been specifically convenient for senior citizens in the area.
The facility is owned by Riddle Hospital and is on the second floor of the Rothman Institute building. The center is operated by Newark, Del.-based CardioKinetics.
According to the Delco Times, Paul Sandler who is an eight-year member of the center said, “It would appear to me that if they really wanted to keep it open, there would be a way to do so. I can’t conceive of how a hospital concerned with good health and wellness would terminate a facility which deals almost exclusively with senior citizens.”
Riddle representatives met with the members in mid-March and Buck said they reviewed the possibility of keeping the center open but said the legal and compliance teams determined that was not possible.
As a result, she offered them a reduce rate membership for one person at $61 per month and $53 per month with a spouse for the Main Line Health Fitness & Wellness Center at 1020 Baltimore Pike in Glen Mills.
While that seems like a fair trade, it doesn’t seem to be enough to appease the masses.
Apparently Main Line Health examined possibilities of how to keep fitness space there but determined it would take a significant investment to do so.
