MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO/CNN) - A gym is restricting television privileges for its members.

Life Time Fitness is blocking cable news channels from television monitors in its facilities.

The gym-chain is based in Chanhassen, MN, and has locations across the U.S. and Canada.

A representative said there were "many member requests" leading up to the decision.

The company believes it supports its mission to promote healthy lifestyles.

CNN, Fox News and MSNBC are some of the stations getting blocked.

Local news stations are still expected to be available.
