The gym posted a letter to its members from Jarryd Moyer, senior VP of operations of Power Train Gym on its Facebook page informing them of the impending closing.

“We sincerely apologize for this unexpected notice, and any inconvenience this may cause,” Moyer said. “We are committed to fulfilling memberships and encourage you to make the most of the last few weeks here at Power Train Gym. Let’s go out on a strong note!”

The gym was forced to close in March when Gov. Tom Wolf ordered all non-essential businesses to close. And gyms were one of the last businesses to open under Wolf’s three phase state reopening plan. The gym said it did not collect any membership payments from April to June. The gym reopened in late June.

The company’s lease with Derry Township and the Derry Township School District is up for renewal on Oct. 31 and Power Train Gym said the three parties were unable to come to an agreement.

The gym has been in operation for five years and offers sports performance and personal training, fitness classes and gym memberships.

Power Train has 18 facilities in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Virginia, according to its website.

Power Train’s gym in Derry Township will follow other gym closings including Fitness U at Strawberry Square and Iron Fit Gym in Lititz. Nationally, Gold’s Gym announced the closing of 30 company-owned gyms but, none of them are located in Pennsylvania.
