Woman Sues Gym for Refusing to Suspend Memberships

Brock Fritz Headshot

Fitness studios and gyms across the United States are trying to navigate the loss of business due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A fitness club in the northeast is being sued for failing to suspend memberships while the gym is closed as a social-distancing precaution. According to The Washington Times, Mary Namorato filed a 23-page class-action lawsuit against New York Sports Clubs last week, saying that the club has breached its contract and is denying its 600,000-plus members the option to cancel their memberships.

New York Sports Clubs, which are owned by Town Sports International LLC and Town Sports International Holdings Inc., have been closed since March 16. Namorato, who lives in New York, said the club has ignored her attempts to contact them about her $70 a month membership.
