Urban Active closed its Mason location last Friday following a buyout of the Kentucky-based chain by LA Fitness.
The closure came on the same day LA Fitness announced it had completed an agreement to purchase “substantially all of the assets relating to Urban Active’s clubs in Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Nebraska, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.”
LA Fitness will honor all of Urban Active’s current membership and personal training agreements, officials said.
The 27,000-square-foot Mason club is the only location to close. Members of that club are being referred to a 50,000-square-foot LA Fitness Club at 11359 Montgomery Road, Symmes Township.
Urban Active had 36 locations, including 19 in Ohio and six in the Cincinnati area. Founded in 2007 in Lexington, Ky., the chain had an estimated $107.5 million in revenue in 2011, according to trade publication Club Industry.
Through Dec. 15, Urban Active club members can receive a free week of premier membership at the Mason Community Center when they show their club fitness cards.
Urban Active members who join the community center by Dec. 15 will receive their first month of membership free (administrative fee applies).
The Mason Community Center offers two pools, a spa, fitness center, personal training packages, track, gymnasium and field house with basketball courts, climbing wall, child care, cafe and programs for people of all ages.
The center is at 6050 Mason-Montgomery Road and can be reached at 513-229-8555.
