Two LA Fitness centers were under investigation for Legionella bacteria after a total of four club members were diagnosed with Legionnaires’ disease. The fitness center located at 12700 South Orange Blossom Trail recently tested positive for Legionella bacteria. Now, the fitness center at 4792 Kirkman Road has also tested positive for Legionella bacteria.
Both gyms were advised by the health department to hyperchlorinate the water and put filters on shower heads located within their facilities. The facilities are awaiting the follow-up test results to see if these measures have eliminated the risk of Legionella transmission. LA Fitness has reportedly hired a water treatment company to treat both facilities.
