LA Fitness gym in Adelaide Street, Belfast, set to close

The LA Fitness gym in Belfast city centre is to close after a deal to sell it to another operator fell through.

The gym was one of 33 being sold by the chain as part of a major corporate restructuring.

A deal had been reached to sell it to Sports Direct that would have involved it taking over the lease of premises on Adelaide Street.

However, the landlord has not agreed to the transfer and so the gym will close on 4 July.

The company said that no further payments will be taken from members.

The other LA Fitness branches in Northern Ireland are not affected.
