What You Need to Know About the Cancellation of Movement Gyms Chicago’s Yoga and Fitness Programs

On December 9, 2023, Movement Chicago gym members received an email notice of the cancellation of the fitness and yoga programs due to “underperformance” with the final classes set for December 15. Class instructors and coaches were given the same amount of notice of their termination.

Movement cancelled these programs without asking for any feedback from members. They also claim to have notified the programs supervisors ahead of time, but supervisors say they were not contacted.

The “underperformance” Movement claims is shown through consistently full classes, happy class participants, and a thriving community that extends beyond the walls of the gym.

They did not specify, but it seems that the layoffs of the instructors is likely without the intention of re-hiring (and some instructors would not return anyway).

We are Movement members organizing a formal petition against the cancellation of these programs. You’ll be able to sign the petition on this website when it goes live.
