Thousands of expatriate and Thai fitness customers are screaming for their money back as True Fitness shut operation at two Bangkok locations.

Customers screamA sign at reception yesterday at the company’s Exchange Tower operation in Asoke said it was the last day. The firm’s other center in Ngam Wong Wan at the Esplanade is also shuttered.

Many expats went on forums on Facebook to say they had been scammed with some furious customers having forked out yearly memberships.

Calls to the company were being ignored and the company were not commenting on their website.

The closure comes just four years after the closure of California Wow left their customers high and dry.

Manager quoted insiders as saying that rent and utility bills at Exchange Tower had not been paid. The news media said that receptionists told them that they had not been paid for up to four months.

Other staff were simply not there.

Earlier this month customers were concerned when the company said that there had been a “power cut” at their Khae Rai branch and the “air conditioners were broken”.

Customers were advised to go to Asoke but now it looks as though the comments at Khae Rai may have been a ruse to buy time.

True Fitness opened their flagship branch at Asoke in 2006. The facility is on several floors utilizing 50,000 square feet of space.

No mention is made of the closure on the company’s sign up page.
