  1. LA Fitness Security
    Seems this is second round of locker break ins in last two weeks. Don’t they have any locker room security?

    1. Security? Probably not.

      If the men's locker room is anything like the women's, I sincerely doubt it. Only rarely do I even see a cleaning lady in the women's & certainly no sort of security. Sometimes I'm literally the only person in the locker room. This is the type of publicity which causes negative outcomes for LA Fitness' bottom line so hopefully they will spring for some sort of security or vastly increase their membership so criminal behavior like this would be deterred by the presence of others.
