HUNDREDS of fitness fans have been hit by the shock shutdown of a Huddersfield health club.
The women-only Reviva club in King Street shut its doors this week.
The club's parent company has placed the Huddersfield club and 16 others into receivership.
But angry members were given no warning of the move.
And many are concerned that they are paying direct debits totalling hundreds of pounds into club funds.
The health club above the Abbey bank re-opened last January, four months after being hit by a fire.
Reviva was badly damaged by the blaze in October, 2003.
It affected the second and third floors of the building.
Club member Mrs Denise Brierley, of Crosland Moor, said: "I turned up as usual for my Friday workout and found the place locked up and in darkness.
"There was a note on the door simply saying the club was closed until further notice.
"We had no warning; indeed, the club was open as normal when I went on Monday and none of the staff said anything.
"The worry is that there are about 1,000 members of the club in Huddersfield and we are all expected to pay monthly fees, most of them by direct debit."
Another member said: "I paid my £200 fee by cheque last week and no-one said anything. Now I expect I will lose my money."
The Reviva chain of 17 health clubs, which includes branches in Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool and Sheffield, was taken over several months ago by another fitness chain, Bourton Mill.
A spokesman for the company would not go into details about the latest moves.
He said: "I can confirm the Reviva clubs have been put into receivership this week. I do not know what the next move will be."
