A fitness studio in Highlands Ranch has closed and faces the possibility of being formally evicted.

Burn Boot Camp – Highlands Ranch, located at C-470 and Colorado Boulevard, was sued last week by its landlord, Matrix Group, which said the studio owes at least $31,020 in rent and other costs.

Matrix is asking the court to give it possession of the premises. The lawsuit was filed in Douglas County District Court.

Dena Hudson is the owner of Burn Boot Camp’s Highlands Ranch franchise, which announced its opening in 2016. The studio did not return requests for comment.

The studio hasn’t held classes in nearly a month, according to a Nov. 8 Facebook post, which reads, “I apologize for any inconvenience this may pose but camps will be cancelled indefinitely and ask that you refer to your email for further details.” The studio has not posted on Facebook since.

Matrix declined to comment on the case. Denver attorney Theodore W. Brin is representing the firm.

Burn Boot Camp, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, is a fitness franchise founded by married couple Devan and Morgan Kline. The company, geared toward women, takes participants through 45-minute high-intensity workouts.

The company still has franchises in Parker, Fort Collins and Colorado Springs, as well as more than 150 other locations in more than 35 states, according to its website.

Other fitness studios that have closed in the Denver area recently include three Yoga Pod studios and QiFlow in the Cole neighborhood.
