California Fitness Singapore has issued a “no comments” directive to its staff. Staff of the once popular gym chain were told not to provide any comments to questions on whether it will also shut down the remaining branches here. The image shows a FAQ that was issued to their stuff.
The gym has shut its branches in China and Hong Kong.
In Singapore, the Republic Plaza branch was shut after the gym failed to make payment for its rent. Gym members noted that the closure brought chaos to the next nearest outlet, Bugis. Personal trainers and members flooded the Bugis outlet. This led to a shortage of towels.
California Fitness Singapore remains tight-lipped about its business developments in Singapore. Members are stuck in a limbo as they cannot terminate their membership due to the “Terms and Conditions” that were stipulated when they signed up with the gym. Yet, the “sign-up for membership” page on the company’s site is still in place and it continues to promote the gym’s packages.
