24 Hour Fitness announced Monday it has filed for bankruptcy after the gym chain closed 18 of its Southern California locations.
On its website, the company said it made the difficult decision to close locations in several states, 18 of them across the Southland. The company has closed 100 locations in the U.S.
"If it were not for COVID-19 and its devastating effects, we would not be filing for Chapter 11," said Chief Executive Officer Tony Ueber in a statement on Monday.
24 Hour Fitness, which is based in San Ramon, says it hopes to reopen the majority of its locations by the end of June.
