SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CA — The national gym chain 24 Hour Fitness has filed for bankruptcy and is closing more than 100 locations, including in San Diego County.
24 Hour Fitness is permanently shuttering four locations in the county:
- Chula Vista: 320 Third Ave.
- La Jolla: 7680 Girard Ave.
- San Marcos: 641 S. Rancho Sante Fe Road
- Vista: 324 Sycamore Ave.
“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 the coronavirus-related shutdowns.
