Trans Canada Fitness at Portage's Canad Inns has closed, and so far no reason has been given.

It's caught club members and employees off guard. Evening Manager Cori Bereza was with the club for about a year. She was shocked when she found out from the day staff. She went down to check for herself, adding the closure was a surprise.

Bereza is naturally sorry to lose her employment, but is more concerned about club members. She's thinking particularly about a kids' judo club, whose equipment is still in the gym.

Employee Austin Helie was also surprised when he arrived for his shift yesterday morning and found the locks changed.

Owner Leah Dyck couldn't be reached for comment in Lac du Bonnet.
