NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today announced that she has secured commitments from the parent company of New York Sports Clubs (NYSC) and Lucille Roberts to institute a number of policy changes that will provide economic relief to members who were charged dues over the last six weeks, despite a state order that shut down all health clubs and gyms on March 16, 2020 to stop the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Both NYSC and Lucille Roberts have already followed through on a demand by Attorney General James to automatically freeze memberships at no cost to members, and have now pledged to credit members for time the gym is closed, allow members to electronically cancel memberships without penalties or conditions, and resolve all complaints filed with the Office of the Attorney General.
