Flex-Fit-Gym 24/7 closed with no notice on Sunday evening, and the company that has taken over their memberships is not saying how they acquired them, how many customers are affected and how the transition affects key personal and financial information.

Freedom Fitness spokesman Jake Garry told KRIS-6 news Freedom Fitness “acquired” the memberships from Flex Fit, but called details beyond that a “private matter.”

Questions on how many customers are affected and whether Flex Fit members who wish to cancel their new – if unwanted – Freedom Fitness memberships, also were not answered. Instead, Garry instructed Flex Fit members to call or visit the nearest Freedom Fitness location to discuss individual memberships.

“Flex Fitness is no longer in business but Freedom Fitness is serving their members. We look forward to adding them to the Freedom Fitness family,” he said.
