Members of The Rush gyms throughout the Piedmont will soon see a new name hanging above the door.
The company announced Monday that all 23 of its locations have been bought by Gold’s Gym.
A spokesperson for Gold’s Gym says it will take over ownership of The Rush locations, which are in Tennessee and the Carolinas, in mid-August. It says current members of The Rush will have no interruption of service, and will be allowed to continue on their same contracts at the same rates.
Still, some members of The Rush say they aren’t too happy about this change of ownership.
“We used to belong to Gold’s, we left Gold’s for Rush,” says Cheri Tow, a member of The Rush. “Because they weren’t taking care of the gyms.”
Gold’s Gym says it plans to keep most, if not all, of the staff from The Rush.
