A concerned citizen found a dumpster overflowing with old gym memberships.  Member credit card information, Social Security numbers, addresses, and other information.  The information dates back from the late 1990s and early 2000s.  Memberships were originally from Fitness 1, but Fitness 1 sold the location to LA Fitness in 2000.  The hundreds of sensitive documents appear to have been abandoned by LA Fitness when it vacated the space.  A former Fitness 1 attorney took the exposed documents out of the dumpster after the discovery.
