Shirlee’s Closing April 15: Farewell and Thank You


Shirlee’s Members,

As you know, Shirlee’s Gym has been working on finding a buyer for the gym, but it is with great sadness that I must inform you that the potential buyers decided not to complete the sale.  The last day Shirlee’s Ultimate Women’s Gym will be open is April 15, 2023.  We have made arrangements for all of members to continue their last two weeks of April at Fitness Results and Body Rituals, both located in Upland. We will have a class schedule posted there. 

We will be selling all the equipment and furnishings in the gym, so if you are interested in anything, contact Konnie as soon as possible.  Everything must go by April 15, 2023.

We will no longer draft your membership as of May 1, 2023, we will contact you in regards to pre-paid membership and personal training sessions.

I want to personally thank all of our team members and our loyal members for all of the years of support! 

If you have any questions or concerns, ask at the front desk or email me at [email protected].

Shirlee’s Ultimate Women’s Gym Closing April 15, 2023

Shirlee’s Ultimate Women’s Gym will be closing April 15, 2023. We are in discussions with a potential buyer and will keep members informed as we know more.  For the past 12 years, Shirlee’s has provided women in the Inland Valley with a supportive all-women gym. Many of our members have been here since the beginning and even before, when the gym was The Spa, Fitness for Women.  On behalf of our dedicated staff and instructors, I thank members for their support throughout the years, especially when facing difficult challenges presented by the pandemic. I’ve met fabulous women at Shirlee’s, and it has been my privilege to be part of the Shirlee’s community.

Why is the gym closing?
COVID disrupted the success of many small businesses and Shirlee’s was no exception. With support from our staff and our members, we managed to stay afloat, for which I am proud and grateful. Running a small business takes tremendous commitment even in the best of times. I enjoy meeting challenges, however due to personal health-related issues, I need to step back and focus on my health and recovery.

Will the gym stay in business under new ownership?
Over the past few months, I sought out potential buyers, and have been in negotiations with a potential buyer who would like to keep the gym open and honor the memberships of existing members. We were hopeful that a deal would be finalized by the end of March, however that has not happened. So at this time we are uncertain if the gym will be sold.  Because of my personal health situation, I cannot delay closing the gym.  So regardless of whether we have a buyer or not, Shirlee’s last day will be April 15, 2023. 

What happens if I paid in advance for a year?
For members who paid in advance, we will contact you regarding your membership.

What do members need to do if they are on monthly autopay?
There will be no further autopay deductions starting in May.

Is there another gym I can use the last two weeks of April?
Shirlee’s has made arrangements with two nearby gyms in Upland for our members to have 2 weeks complimentary from April 15 to April 30: Fitness Results and Body Rituals.  For more information, ask at the front desk.

If there is a buyer, will the gym be all women?
At first, the new owner may keep the gym all-women, but he may change that in the future.

If there is a new buyer, what changes will be made?
The potential owner plans to renovate and make improvements.  We hope to learn more in the coming weeks.

I have concerns or questions.  How can I learn more?
As we know more, we will post information in the gym and email members.  If you have additional questions, please email konnie at [email protected] 

Thank you again for your support over the years. I know that for many women, this gym has been a supportive place to work out, meet friends, and stay strong in mind, body, and soul. Change can be challenging.  Shirlee’s has been a big part of my life, and I look forward to keeping in touch with many of you.

Sincerely, Konnie

SoCal Gas Hikes and Heating the Pool in Winter


As you may know, the price of SoCal Gas has skyrocketed in recent weeks, causing gas bills to triple. Shirlee’s Gym, like many residents and businesses must find ways to cut back gas usage during this time. As a result, starting February 1, for a couple of months until the weather gets warmer, Shirlee’s will stop heating the pool and the jacuzzi. Aqua class starting Feb 1 will be cancelled until further notice. The pool will not be warm, but it is still open for use if you desire. We understand this will be a disappointment to our many loyal pool users, but heating the pool during the cold weeks of the winter is not feasible at current cost. We apologize for the inconvenience, and we understand the magnitude of this decision—however we feel that this is a necessary move at this time. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact [email protected] or [email protected] in regards to this matter. Thank you.
