In a statement Energie Fitness Clubs did not refer to the job losses but said changes at the club were necessary to ensure its viability.
The statement to members, the club said: “As a result of the current economic climate we at Energie Fitness Clubs are restructuring the club in order to provide you with a more cost effective service.
“With our current membership set at €45 per month and set to increase at the beginning of the next business quarter, we don’t believe that this is what the public are looking for.
“By restructuring the club and cutting out the extras that are rarely used we are now in a position to offer membership fees from as little as €25 per month.”
However some club members aren’t happy with the decision.
“This has to be a joke,” said one, “I’ll be looking go elsewhere. I joined gym three years and its the instructors that have got me where I am…. There’s no gym without them.”
