Lincoln gyms offering deals to former Anytime Fitness members

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The YMCA of Lincoln is looking to help out former Anytime Fitness members, who were left hanging after the gyms unexpectedly closed.

Now through Jan. 31, former Anytime Fitness members who sign up for a YMCA membership will get the remainder of that month free, the business said in a Wednesday press release.

People must show proof of their Anytime Fitness membership to get the offer, which is valid at all four YMCA of Lincoln locations.

“We recognize the importance of one’s health and wellness, and want to take care of everyone in our community,” said Barb Bettin, president & CEO of the YMCA of Lincoln, in the release. “The holidays are an especially critical time for our mental and physical health, and for over 150 years the Y has provided a space to nurture both.”

On Nov. 25, members of Anytime Fitness locations in Lincoln were surprised to find a note on the door saying the gyms had been closed.

Channel 8 spoke with some gym members, who said they received no prior notice of the closure.

An Anytime Fitness location in Hickman is still open.
