We begin tonight right here in Claremont with news that yet another Pleasant Street storefront will soon become vacant as the result of foreclosure.
The Twisted Fitness workout club owned by Jon and Leigh Ann Root announced Monday on its Facebook page the gym will soon be closing its doors due to pressure from its bank.
According to the post, “they no longer have the faith in our business or in the Claremont market. … The decision to close operations was theirs not ours.”
The husband and wife duo opened the business back in 2001, but has been losing business in recent years since the opening of the Claremont Savings Bank Community Center in 2013.
The Valley News reports that Twisted Fitness had about 1,000 clients when the community center opened, with those numbers dropping to approximately 500 just six months later. The gym has said it will remain open until it receives further notice from its bank, though the building is slated for auction Dec. 8.
