Eastlake Athletic Club buys, closes iClubFit 24/7

Eastlake Athletic Club has bought out iClubFit 24/7, which had been in the Cobblestone Crossing plaza.

This is the third time Eastlake Athletic Club has acquired a smaller competitor, but the first time it is closing such a competitors's doors, said Eastlake co-owner Jason Evers. He felt the location wasn't needed because of the proximity of two Eastlake sites. A two-minute drive away, Eastlake's Henke Street location offers indoor tennis, basketball, showers, aerobics classes, a nursery and indoor baseball amenities. The Verdant Drive location, about a five-minute drive away, is also open 24/7.

Evers said Eastlake is honoring iClubFit 24/7 members' rates, as long as they want to remain Eastlake members.

iClubFit 24/7 was owned by Al Reasonover, who owns Tiki Tan.
