____________________________________________________________________________

For the last 25 years 7 Flags has been an important part of the Des Moines community.  It has been our great pleasure to serve and make lasting memories with the community.  We are sad to announce that on June 8th we will close the doors to the 7 Flags Fitness center.

There is a silver lining for our members; Aspen Athletic Club has agreed to serve the 7 Flags membership as their own will acquire all dues paying memberships.  This means that even though we will have to close our doors, our members will not be left without a workout home.

FAQ

Why are you closing?

Rising costs, increased competition and a drastic reduction in fair market membership price have made it difficult for us to recover from the damage and neglect from the previous owner.

What happens on June 8th?

7 Flags will remain open for operation until 9 PM CST on June 8th, 2014. All members will have the option to continue using their membership at Aspen Athletic Clubs through the month of June.

What happens to my membership?

All 7 Flags memberships will be honored until June 30th at Aspen Athletic Club. Aspen and 7 Flags are asking all members to please take a minute to transfer their membership to Aspen agreements (this will not include any additional cost for Month to Month or Active Paid in Full memberships) See below for your specific membership type.

Prepaid Membership

Aspen has agreed to serve you as their own until the end of your current term at 7 Flags. For example, if your expiration date is September 1st, 2015, you will be allowed to workout at All Aspen locations until the membership has expired. At that time you would then need to purchase a new membership from Aspen.

Your membership will be honored at its current rate through the end of this year. If the membership dues are below fair market value, Aspen may adjust the dues to align with fair market rates. Aspen will notify you with a letter no less than 30 days prior to any changes regarding your account.

When will my Dues Come out?

In the month of June your dues will come out as scheduled. Starting in July, Aspen will bill on the 1st, 8th, 15th, and 23rd. We will match to the closest date on your current agreement.

Can I cancel?

Yes, you may cancel. However, you will be subject to all rejoining fees should you choose to join Aspen at a later date. Because Aspen has purchased your membership you will still be charged June dues even if you cancel.  There will be no refunds on Paid in Full memberships.
