"Regrettably, our staff unnecessarily escalated the situation and called the police rather than work through it", the national fitness club chain said in a statement. When he refused to oblige, the manager tried to get the police officers to make him stop recording, which they promptly informed him they could not legally do. "Clearly, this is a long time member with a now valid membership. 2 mins later 5 police men show up asking us to leave".
"This La Fitness manager who refused to give us his reason to kicking us out, and refused to give us his name stated that I was banned from the gym and my friend's gym membership has been terminated effective immediately", Oates wrote on Facebook. "We have spoken to the member to apologize and assured him that he and his guests are welcome in our clubs at all times".
