Recently there has been a sharp increase in thefts at area gyms. Wallets and purses have been taken from lockers as well as from cars in the parking lots around the gyms. The best advice is do not take valuables to the gym. If you are using a locker, get a quality lock. The price difference will be made up in the security of your items. Inexpensive locks, whether key or combination, are too easy to defeat. Thieves look for something quick in order to avoid being seen.
