Chance to snap up cheap gear as gym closes doors

For those with New Year’s fitness resolutions, a Gladstone gym’s closure could be your chance to snap up some cheap equipment.

Snap Fitness Gladstone, previously located in the Valley Shopping Centre on Goondoon St, closed its doors to patrons on December 4.

In a statement released later, a spokesman for the gym detailed its indefinite closure to the public.

“Snap Fitness have enjoyed the eight years we have operated from Gladstone and the thousands of people we have had the chance to impact in a positive way,” the spokesman said.

“We wish all members past and present the very best in their wellness journey and thank you for being part of ours.

“We will be updating online any equipment that will be sold and this will be offered on a first in first serviced basis once we close.”

A subsequent social media post on December 14 sent the gym and fitness community into a spin, with cheap equipment being advertised on the gym’s Facebook page.
