The gym in Mcomas, Melbourne’s CBD, has been a long-running disappointment for the residents of the suburb.
As a result, its owner has had to sell off his two-storey gym to pay for repairs.
He says the gym has been “shaky and dangerous” and the only place to go to do some physical work is a park in the back of the building.
Mr Mcomas has lived in the building for 20 years and is an avid fitness fan.
“I’ve gone to the gym once a week for 30 years,” he said.
But now that the gym is being sold, he will be unable to go out, and has put in place a “safe place” for his family.
MCCOMAS GYM RETURNS TO THE GROUND The gym, which has a capacity of about 300, is located at the corner of Park Avenue and Park Street, and was purchased by Mcomas in 2008.
The building was listed on the local property market for $8.5 million in August 2016, but it sold in June for $12.5.
It has been the subject of a number of complaints, including vandalism, the building is filthy, and the floors are not safe to use, according to the ABC.
Mcomas said he had contacted the City of Melbourne about the building’s condition, but was told that they were unable to provide any assistance.
On Friday, he said he hoped to have a replacement gym built, although the building will not be ready for a new owner for a few years.
