LA Fitness apologizes for NJ membership snafu

This was no consolation, however, as the gym's manager asked the men to leave about 10 minutes later, followed by five officers who instructed them to do the same.

NJ.com reports that the gym's manager and two other employees were fired from the company.

New Jersey Advance Media reported Tuesday that the manager and two employees involved in the incident were recently removed from the company, according to a current employee at the gym.

Amid nationwide backlash over a racial profiling incident at a Philadelphia Starbucks, three employees at a New Jersey gym have reportedly been fired for a similar situation. The two went back into the gym and continued their workout. Oates and his friend are then told that their memberships are being revoked and that they have been banned from the gym.

L.A. Fitness said in its statement that the employee who asked for the customer's membership card after he previously had it scanned "was not working when this member checked in the first time, so she was unaware".

His friend's membership was rescanned and showed "current active statues".

That's why it must truly stick in Trudeau's "Sunny ways" craw to publicly come out in favor of the Trans Mountain pipeline . Notley said the legislation sends the message that Alberta is prepared to defend its resources.

Oates's video has been shared almost 50,000 times on Facebook.

"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".

Raw Story has reached out to LA Fitness for comment but has not yet received any response.

At one point even the police officers seem to be confused as to why the gym doesn't want the two Black men on the premises.

Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson announced Tuesday that all stores will close for one day next month for "racial-bias education" classes.
