24 Hour Fitness Closing 2 Locations In North Bay

·1 min read

NORTH BAY, CA —The national gym chain 24 Hour Fitness has filed for bankruptcy and is closing more than 100 locations. Nearly half of the closures –42 – are in California and 13 are in the Bay Area.

In the North Bay, 24 Hour Fitness is permanently shuttering two locations, both of which are in Solano County:

  • Solano Mall – Fairfield, 1519 Gateway Blvd., Fairfield, CA 94533

  • Vallejo, 4300 Sonoma Blvd., Vallejo, CA 94589

"If it were not for COVID-19 and its devastating effects, we would not be filing for Chapter 11," CEO Tony Ueber said in a statement. "We expect to have substantial financing with a path to restructuring our balance sheet and operations to ensure a resilient future."

Despite the forced closures, 24 Hour Fitness said Monday in its Chapter 11 filings that it has secured $250 million in funding to support the reopening of its other locations by the end of June. Those locations had been closed for months because of coronavirus-related shutdowns.

Four San Francisco locations are among those in the Bay Area slated for closure; other closures are in Morgan Hill, Alamo, Berkeley, San Jose, Fremont, Milpitas and Walnut Creek.

Yet, four 24 Hour Fitness locations in the North Bay are expected to remain open:

  • Santa Rosa, 3550 Industrial Drive, Santa Rosa, CA 95403

  • Rohnert Park, 6345 Commerce Blvd, Rohnert Park, CA 94928

  • Petaluma, 6 Petaluma Blvd North, Petaluma, CA 94952

  • Larkspur, 1001 Larkspur Landing Circle, Larkspur, CA 94939

24 Hour Fitness now joins Gold’s Gym as a medium-sized fitness chain that has filed for bankruptcy due to coronavirus-related losses.
