The Tri-City Fitness in St. Charles closed for business Friday.

ST. CHARLES – After seven years in business, Tri-City Fitness, 1505 W. Main St. in St. Charles, closed Friday.

Manager Jim Van Syckle said the gym is going out of business.

“It would not be worth moving, and the building is not worth staying [in],” Van Syckle said. “We are closing and not reopening.”

Property manager Ryan Corcoran, of Corcoran Commercial Real Estate, said he could not immediately comment on the future of Valley Shopping Center, where the gym is located.

“I can’t say anything until a couple of weeks from now,” Corcoran said.

Receptionist Katie Russo said the boxing club and one trainer will remain through March, but then they will move on to open their own facility. The shortened hours will be posted on the website and Facebook, Russo said.

“I am going to work with the guys who are continuing on and help them out, and then we’ll see what happens,” Russo said “It’s really sad. We have a very great following and a lot of great people.”
