Virgin Active South Africa has banned a man who was filmed masturbating inside on of their gyms in Stellenbosch in full view of other gym members.
In a statement released to News24, Virgin Active spokesperson Carla White said the man has been banned for life.

“Virgin Active is aware of a video circulating on social media and WhatsApp,” she said in a later statement.
“Our clubs are shared spaces and we will absolutely not tolerate depraved behaviour.
“We commenced our investigation as soon as we received the video. We have identified the member in question and have terminated his membership with immediate effect.”
The video was captured from one of the exercise machines by another gym-goer at the club’s Stellenbosch branch, and has since been shared on WhatsApp and social media.
