This extremely difficult decision was made after a difficult evaluation process and other options suitable for us were also evaluated during this process. Unfortunately, our efforts to save the business and the scheduled work of our team in Istanbul were not enough to get the required income. In these circumstances, it has recently become clear that we cannot financially support Turkish business without influencing other members in our global activities.

The damage was extensive
One of the most talked about topics on the internet was how members get their money back.

Although no official statement has been issued by the company in this regard, it is said that the company has sent the following message to its employees in this regard:

Our company, which started operating in Turkey on 16.05.2011 as part of “Jatomi Fitness & Spa”, which has more than 60 sports clubs in Poland, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Romania, Indonesia and Malaysia, could not achieve the desired success despite all efforts. . Although measures taken and the recovery of savings were intended to curb rising costs, rising costs have pushed Turkey’s structure into a loss-making position among our other companies. As a result, it has become inevitable to shut down our operations in Turkey and report bankruptcies within the company to the appropriate courts so that losses do not escalate. In this regard, we inform you that the activities of our company will be closed from tomorrow and the clubs will be closed. We urge you to follow the legal process closely in terms of your legal rights and to appeal to the bankruptcy administration in this regard. “
