Fitness centers ban news channels from their TVs

Life Time fitness is removing cable news from their gym TVs.

In a statement from Life Time officials, the chain said the move is in a response to member requests.

"We made the decision to remove cable news channels from the large TV screens in the cardio and fitness floor areas at the start of 2018. This was based on many member requests received over time across the country, and in keeping with our overall healthy way of life philosophy and commitment to provide family oriented environments free of consistently negative or politically charged content."

Included in the cable news blackout is CNN, FOX, MSNBC and CNBC.
