Robert: Man gets locked in 24 hour gym after it closes

A man in Utah found himself in a precarious situation after he became locked in a 24 hour gym after is closed. (?!)

Dan Hill says he went to the gym for a late night workout Saturday and after he finished swimming laps in the pool, he discovered he was alone in the building and the doors were locked.

“Doesn’t the name suggest that they stay open 24 hours?” Hill wrote in a Facebook post.

I am literally locked inside 24 hour fitness right now. They closed the doors and went home while I was swimming my laps…

Hill eventually called 911. “I called dispatch and the guy pauses for like 10 seconds and says ‘You’re where?’ And I said, ‘I’m in 24 Hour Fitness, and there’s an alarm system here and I don’t want to get busted for breaking and entering.'”

Police showed up to let him out of the building just before 1 a.m.

The manager of the gym explained that the hours for the gym changed back in December from 24 hours to 4 a.m.-midnight.
