AEROBICS instructors from a stricken Huddersfield health club are planning a salvage mission.
Louise Smyth and Tina Watkins, who ran classes at the Reviva Club in King Street, are trying to arrange alternative sessions for many of the club members.
Hundreds were left in the dark when the owners shut the health club without warning last week.
And many of the members are also out of pocket, as they had paid fees in advance.
Now the two instructors, who worked on a freelance basis, hope to arrange classes in other premises in Huddersfield.
Louise said: "I ran seven classes and Tina did four and they were very popular.
"People have been stunned by the closure and have asked what we can do. We are now contacting community centres in Huddersfield trying to fix up an alternative so club members can continue their routines.
"I knew nothing about the move into receivership until last Thursday. I got a phone call from a staff member telling me the club would be shut down and locked from the following morning.
"The last time it went into receivership, many months ago, it continued trading but now it has been locked."
She said there were about 1,000 women on the books, of all ages. Many are Asian women who can only exercise at women-only classes.
The Reviva chain of 17 clubs was taken over last summer by Bourton Mill, who run other fitness centres.
A spokesman for Bourton Mill said the Reviva businesses had closed and been put into administration.
The two instructors urged members to contact them on 01484 350535 or 01484 431498.
