Gym closes doors, leaves customers in the dark

Posted: Updated:
DAVISON, MI (WNEM) -

A local gym closes its doors and moves out equipment but some customers say they had no warning and no refund.

One customer says he paid more than one hundred bucks for a six month gym membership. Then two weeks later, he says the gym shut down.

Customers of Elite Body Fitness in Davison say they weren't given any warning the gym was shutting down. Now, those customers say they want a refund but they haven't heard from the owner of the gym.

Davison city records identify the owner of the gym as Vern Calhoun.

WNEM tried unsuccessfully to contact several disconnected telephone numbers and even visited an address on file with the city.

Then Calhoun contacted TV5. He said he was more than willing to address the allegations and offer an explanation on why he shut down.

"The gym closed because of the economy. I would like to say it was not my intention to take anyone's money. It was to keep my gym open," said Calhoun.

Calhoun insists he never meant to leave anyone high and dry. The former gym owner also says he has every intention to give refunds to customers who prepaid their memberships.

Calhoun also says he has everyone's information and he will contact those members who prepaid to give them a refund. WNEM will stay in touch with Calhoun to see if this situation gets resolved.
