The Orlando Magic agreed in 2007 to build five community gyms to help seal a public-financing deal for the new $480 million arena, and today, its team-themed facilities burst with youth leagues, day campers, workout warriors and Zumba lovers. However, these new gyms are also going to cost taxpayers twice as much to run as the county originally estimated, a review of budget records shows. Instead of breaking even, the five facilities are expected to generate a $1.25 million annual deficit to operate, once user fees are balanced against staffing and other costs.
