MUV Fitness Pool Reopens After Fire Damage


On December 19th, 2023, Portland Fire & Rescue crews responded to reports of smoke coming from within the MUV Fitness at 10414 SE Washington StreetReports indicated smoke centered around the gym’s sauna room, where fire sprinklers activated. Damage from the event closed the pool and sauna for months, with staff unable to advise on a potential repair date. This month, the SE MUV Fitness fully reopened, allowing members access to swim and sauna services.

Many Montavilla residents began attending this MUV Fitness location after Cascade Athletic Clubs closed their neighborhood gym and pool, making this nearly three-month-long pool closure particularly inconvenient. Some gym members expressed frustration with MUV Fitness’s poor communication regarding the repair timeline. For over a month, the company failed to respond to customer inquiries and Montavilla News’ requests for information. The company website never mentioned the pool closure and continued advertising that amenity.

Despite the delay in restoration, MUV Fitness members will appreciate having access to the pool and sauna again. Area residents have fewer choices for full-service fitness centers since Cascade Athletic Clubs and 24-Hour Fitness closed their Interstate 205 adjacent locations. Many area residents appreciate having the MUV Fitness location in the neighborhood due to its extended hours of operation and various amenities. Now, customers have regained access to all the gym services they have grown accustomed to using.
