That latter feature is particularly interesting.

But 24 Hour Fitness representatives told KSL.com that signs stating the hours of operation are posted in visible places in all of their clubs. After reaching out to family and friends for advice on what to do, Hill contacted Sandy emergency dispatchers and was freed about an hour after he initially tried to leave.

Afraid he could set off an alarm by opening the door, Hill called police.

While he was waiting, he wrote he called his wife who told him to “find a comfortable place to sleep.”

Hill jokingly compared his experience to the movie “Home Alone.”

“Like oh my gosh. I have this gym to myself,” he said.

After more than an hour locked inside, Hill posted on Facebook: “Free at last! Free at last! Thanks to three nice cops I am free at last.”

“We apologize to Mr. Hill and the unfortunate experience he had in the 24 Hour Fitness Sandy club,” 24 Hour Fitness said in a statement, according to the station.

They said they've decided to close some of their locations between midnight and 4 a.m. based on “low usage" among other factors.
