BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
It is the end of the road for the embattled Powerhouse Gym in Baton Rouge. Friday the owners of the gym were officially evicted from the building in court.
The eviction process officially started when attorneys representing the Muriel Land Corporation filed suit to have Ronnie and Connie Olah evicted from the premises.
There are still many people looking to get refunds for memberships paid to the gym even before it open. Stephanie Montalbano paid more than $800 to the owners, Connie and Ronnie Olah. She has yet to get her promised refund and Friday's news wasn't what she was looking forward to hearing.
"I had kind of had some hope that I was going to be able to get a refund," Montalbano said.
"I've been kind of waiting and giving them the benefit of the doubt- it's very disappointing to hear this."
Ronnie Olah promised the gym would be completely operation soon as his team started deducting membership fees from hundreds of accounts in the last few weeks.
Powerhouse Gym and its construction's financial problems have been well documented, including several battles with contractors over a year and half period.
The gym owners advertised a huge, state of the art gym in Baton Rouge to open January 2012.
Olah opened a small temporary part of the gym just a few weeks ago, but with Friday's eviction, now that too is closed.
"I have emailed and called the billing company to cancel all members and refund money effective immediately. I also texted the owner of the billing company to make him aware," said Ronnie Olah.
The attorney for the building's owners says the Olahs still owe money for the building and there are several liens in place, so that part of the litigation will go on.
Members are left in a holding pattern- and will have to wait and see.
Montalbano says she has been promised some money on Monday, if that doesn't happen, she plans to file a suit in small claims court.
"I've been going back and forth with the billing company and him just trying to get some answers," Montalbano said.
"Unfortunately they (the billing company) don't refund paid-in-full customers."
