Health Department Permits Re-Opening of LA Fitness on Dempster St, Morton Grove

After numerous reports of lack of toilet paper, lack of shampoo and detection of mold and mildew conditions, Morton Grove Health Department officials closed the facility “in an effort to protect the health of the public”. The facility was closed Wednesday February 22, 2012 at 3:00 p.m.

The swimming pool at the fitness center has been closed since October 2011, after failing to comply with a state law mirroring the federal Virginia Graeme Baker Act, which protects against a dangerous issue with older pool drains. Several fitness centers had swimming pools that were temporarily closed to comply with the new law.

LA Fitness was permitted to reopen this morning at 10:00 a.m.

The fitness center has also had a serious problem with locker room theft recently.
