24 Hour Fitness files for bankruptcy, announces about 130 gym closures

June 15, 2020

by Ken Bradley

On June 15, 2020, gym company 24 Hour Fitness Worldwide Inc. filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and announced the permanent closures of about 130 locations in the United States, mostly in California and Texas. The company was forced to close its locations nationwide in March 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Approximately 400 of the remaining 24 Hour Fitness locations are expected to re-open by the end of June or early July 2020, depending on gym re-opening policies of the state, county or city where each gym is located.

The re-opening of these 24 Hour Fitness gyms includes new policies for health precautions during the COVID-19 pandemic, such as requiring appointments, with each appointment limiting gym use to one hour per person; social distancing of people and equipment (at least 6 feet apart) throughout each location; no longer providing childcare and fitness done in groups; and discontinuing the use of showers, swimming pools, saunas and basketball courts.

Customer complaints about 24 Hour Fitness are flooding social media, with people claiming that they have not been able to obtain refunds for pre-paid or automatically paid gym membership during the period of time that 24 Hour Fitness locations have been closed. There are also concerns about getting refunds for locations that will be permanently closed. 24 Hour Fitness has not publicly addressed these complaints.

In a statement on the 24 Hour Fitness website and social-media accounts, the company announced the bankruptcy and restructuring:

“On June 15, 2020, we announced an important step to strengthen 24 Hour Fitness for the long-term. We are implementing a financial restructuring, through a voluntary Chapter 11 filing. This process gives us the opportunity to reposition 24 Hour Fitness by eliminating debt and closing clubs that were either out-of-date or in close proximity with other 24 Hour Fitness clubs.

“Removing these financial and operational constraints allows us to focus entirely on transforming our business and the club experience for the better. We will have the financial flexibility and resources to upgrade equipment and expand and improve our fitness offerings to best serve our members and continue our transformational journey.

“We have refreshed the club environment for the health and safety of our club members. As we continue to reopen clubs in a phased approach, you can learn more about the club environment here.

“While we reopen clubs, all members will have access to any available 24 Hour Fitness club through the end of 2020, regardless of membership level. For updates and further news about our phased club reopenings and locations, please visit us at https://www.24hourfitness.com/health_clubs/gyms-open-near-me.

“We are deeply grateful for your continued loyalty to 24 Hour Fitness. You provide the inspiration for what we do, and we are excited to continue supporting you along your fitness journey well into the future.”
