Fitness International LLC, the formal name of LA Fitness, said it is closing four of the former Vision Quest clubs and is transferring those members to larger LA Fitness clubs as of May 1.
Fitness International LLC, the owner and operator of Irvine, CA-based LA Fitness, is rebranding the Vision Quest Sport and Fitness clubs in the greater Seattle area as LA Fitness and closing four of the 10 Vision Quest clubs the company acquired in late December 2013.
Fitness International told Club Industry that the four former Vision Quest clubs are within 7 minutes of an existing LA Fitness club. The company is transferring members from those four clubs to larger LA Fitness clubs as of May 1. The transferring members will receive amenities such as a swimming pool and a basketball court at the LA Fitness clubs at no additional cost to their memberships, according to the company.
