Fitness One-Moore ending before it begins



However, that hasn’t satisfied some Moore residents who were looking forward to the new gym.

“We only became members at the Norman location to wait for the Moore one to be built,” Brandi Miller-Dykes posted on Facebook. “I was counting on the pool and child care. I think we may cancel our Norman membership and look elsewhere.”

Tonya Hacker was more concerned with those who thought they would have a job at Fitness One-Moore.

“How disappointing,” Hacker posted. “I know people that have been waiting to start work there and now they do not have a job after being told it would be open very soon. A lot of wasted time when they could have already had a job or been looking for one. Posting photos of progress and inside while this was going on is lying to people waiting to work.”

Fitness One officials said they are doing what they can to make this transition go smoothly for their customers. They know there is confusion surrounding the situation since the sale of the club was so unexpected. A hotline has been set up at 215-9577 for members who have questions.

“It was a business decision,” Zachary Wood said. “There is no way that market could survive two large clubs. It’s just not big enough. That’s hard for people to understand. We wanted to open it as much as anyone else did. Just one of those things. We are just trying to make everyone happy at this point.”
