It could have been the longest workout of his life. Utah resident Dan Hill said he was surprised when workers at a 24 Hour Fitness gym locked the doors at midnight on Jan. 11. “I am literally locked inside 24 Hour Fitness right now,” Hill posted on his Facebook page. “They closed the doors and went home while I was swimming my laps in the pool. Doesn’t the name suggest that they stay open 24 hours?” Apparently not. According to a statement by the fitness chain, some locations close between midnight and 4 a.m. Hill told KTVX he called his wife—who told him to take a nap. He also phoned police, and officers arrived more than an hour later to unlock the facility.
