PureGym in Ipswich, which is open 24 hours a day and seven days a week, put up a notice to warn its members of the consequences of not putting them items back in their allotted slots after using them.

The blackboard notice at the gym, in Buttermarket Shopping Centre, reads: “Any member found not to be returning free weights could be liable to suspension or ban.”

It went on to say that one person had been suspended and two people banned.

The rules section of PureGym’s website states: “Can you ensure that you put your weights back in their original place when finished, failure to do so may result in your membership being terminated.

“Please do not misuse the weights by dropping them on the floor, failure to do so may result in your membership being terminated.”
