Go Legs Cycle Studio in the Magnolia Village has announced that it will close at the end of this month. Owner Karen Moyer says she plans to close the cycling studio that has been open since 2006. Prior to shutting down for good on November 1, Moyer says the studio will offer free spinning classes during the month of October for every class each day.
Moyer sent this note to members of the Go Legs Cycle Studio and posted it on the Go Legs website:
It is with deep regret I am writing to inform you that after three plus years, Go Legs Cycle Studio will be closing November 1st, 2009. Due to a combination of the economy, loosing members to a “better deal” at local health clubs, and a difficult location for the business, I cannot keep Go Legs open in Magnolia. With much effort to try to stay open, this decision has been very difficult and emotional for me. However, from a business point it makes the most sense to close as much as I would love to stay open.
I am SO thankful to my amazing, loyal staff through the years. SO proud of each of you! Many of you were clients turned into fantastic instructors! SO remarkable! I encourage you to follow them wherever they go to teach! Alisa will be in touch regarding any refunds.
Moyer says she plans to open another Go Legs in the Seattle area in the future at a different location. She also has a new cycle studio opening in the Sarasota, Florida area in December. Moyer and her family live in Florida during the school year while her sons attend a baseball academy. They recently put their home in Magnolia up for sale. Karen Moyer continues to run the Moyer Foundation with offices in Magnolia.
