A Florida man was enjoying a relaxing session inside a LA Fitness sauna when he emerged to find that the gym had been closed down with him locked inside.
Nicholas Clayton of Clearwater, Florida, was relaxing in the sauna with his headphones on when he came out shortly after 5 p.m. to find all the lights turned off with no one in sight. He documented the experience on Facebook:
So, craziest thing of my life is taking place right this minute. I’VE BEEN LOCKED IN THE LA FITNESS! Was in the sauna with headphones. Came out. Everyone has gone home. #help #LAFitness #baffled

Eventually, Clayton was able to find a solution after calling his mom and then the manager of another LA Fitness gym.
Clayton was able to walk out of the locked gym without any alarms going off.
I guess that puts an end to the great mystery of whether gym equipment comes alive after closing time — they, in fact, do not.
