24 Hour Fitness Permanently Closing Four San Francisco Locations

SAN FRANCISCO, CA — The national gym chain 24 Hour Fitness has filed for bankruptcy and is permanently closing more than 100 locations, including four in San Francisco. The locations planning to remain closed:

  • Alemany Sport, 3951 Alemany Blvd., San Francisco, CA 94132

  • Market Street, 2145 Market St., San Francisco, CA 94114

  • Noe Valley FitLite, 3800 24th St., San Francisco, CA 94114

  • North Point, 350 Bay St., San Francisco, CA 94133

“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.

24 Hour Fitness has nearby clubs that are expected to remain open:

  • Sport, 1200 Van Ness Ave., San Francisco, CA

  • Sport, 1645 Bryant St., San Francisco, CA

  • Sport, 45 Montgomery St., San Francisco, CA

  • Sport, 100 California St., Suite 200, San Francisco, CA 94111

  • Sport, 1850 Ocean Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94112

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