It’s no secret I had a rather large falling out with Weston Fitness. However they are still a business and still were impact to my life. I’m not happy to hear them go, nor am I happy to see friends that I still had there have to find new jobs.
Under the circumstances I still feel I did solid work for Weston Fitness.
Here is an exert of their official statement.
Important Service Announcement
Weston Fitness has been a staple of the Center City fitness community for almost 2 decades. The memories we have made with our members are priceless. Recently, we have been under increasing pressure from our landlord to minimize sound as this has become a “distraction” and “violates other tenant’s quiet enjoyment rights” in the building. This has caused tremendous stress for both the staff and members. For those of you familiar with the unsettling relationship with our landlord, we are humbled by your support. To avoid what would otherwise be a very litigious 3.5 years remaining on our lease, we have reluctantly accepted a settlement with the landlord which means Weston Fitness will be closing at the end of January 2019.
As we recently learned about the inevitability of this settlement, we sought to partner with a Philadelphia based, established leader and provider that could offer our members great facilities and great programming.
We are excited to announce Sweat Fitness, with 7 locations in the greater Philadelphia area including the Brand New location just 5 blocks away at 1 South Broad will be honoring and servicing your Weston Fitness membership and terms effective 1/1/2019. In light of the current circumstances, we couldn’t be more excited for our members to join the Sweat Family. We have spoken at length with Sweat ownership and are confident they are committed to facilitating the best transition possible as all parties understand how a transition such as this can be difficult for everyone.
We wish you a joyous Holiday Season and we graciously thank you for being part of our family.
