24 Hour Fitness bankruptcy: Which gyms are closing?

24 Hour Fitness Worldwide Inc. sought court protection from its creditors, unable to keep up with debt payments after the COVID-19 pandemic shut down gyms nationwide.

The company will permanently close about 130 gyms, including 18 locations around the Greater Los Angeles area and Orange County.

The fitness chain’s Chapter 11 petition was filed in Delaware, court papers show. Such a restructuring allows a company to keep operating while it works out a plan to pay its creditors and ease its debt load of $1.4 billion, plus lease obligations.

24 Hour lined up $250 million in so-called debtor-in-possession financing backed by its creditors to allow the company to continue operating as it starts reopening locations across the

Coronavirus rules for reopening California gyms coming soon

Gov. Gavin Newsom on Wednesday said his administration will release guidelines “in a week or so” for allowing gyms, yoga studios and other fitness facilities to reopen, though stringent safeguards will need to be adopted to protect customers from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Newsom cautioned that the state directives will be tailored to the unique characteristics of each business, from large fitness chains to small studios, and will rely heavily on the advice of public health officials in each county.

The governor made the comments during an online roundtable with fitness professionals and business owners Wednesday morning, saying he hopes to allow them to be back in business as soon as possible.

“We also recognize your sector is multifaceted and we don’t want to be naive and just put out something that’s bland and that doesn’t meet your unique criteria and your unique considerations,” Newsom said.

The news comes as Dr.

California gyms reopening: Gov. Gavin Newsom says guidelines for reopening CA gyms, fitness centers coming in ‘week or so’

SAN FRANCISCO — When do gyms reopen in California and what will they look like when they do? Gov. Gavin Newsom held a roundtable discussion on Wednesday to talk about reopening the fitness industry amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The participants shared how they are dealing with the crisis, how they are adapting their workplaces, and what opportunities they see to reinvent their businesses and our state’s economy.

Newsom says he hopes that within a week or so, the state can release guidelines for reopening gyms. But he also points out that the fitness industry is multi-faceted and he doesn’t want to be naive and just put out something bland that doesn’t meet the unique criteria and considerations.

In the meantime, some gyms and instructors have been able to switch to virtual, one-on-one classes to make money. “We’re continuing to work our mission virtually,” one fitness industry member said.

The club’s CEO, Tony Ueber, says they’re ready to reopen with modifications.           

“The most important is we’re going to open the clubs for an hour at a time; let people come in and workout, then we’ll close the club for 30 minutes in order to do a deep cleaning.  And then open it back up for another 60-minute segment,” says Ueber.

Ueber says the hour on, 30 minutes off will give cleaning

Gym that opened during lockdown closes after getting 4 citations in 2 days

A Pennsylvania gym that reopened during the state’s stay-at-home order closed again after receiving four citations.

10X Fitness, in Lackawanna County, reopened on Monday. The gym had been shuttered since Gov. Tom Wolf ordered nonessential businesses to close their doors on March 19 to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

But Tuesday night, the gym posted on Facebook that it had decided to once again close.

“Unfortunately, due to citations, we will have to close our doors once again until further notice,” the post said. “In preparing to take this unprecedented stand, we did expect these consequences.”

The gym received four citations — two on Monday and on

The 5 Best Personal Trainers in State College, PA (with Free Estimates)

Fitness boot camps are a heart-pounding way to boost your fitness level. Boot camps are led by a fitness instructor and are based on the concept of military boot camps — intensive workout programs to get new recruits into shape, quickly. Fitness boot camps encourage camaraderie, and the group momentum helps participants get through fast-paced intervals of cardio, isometric training, strength training and endurance drills. Classes may range anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, and usually meet multiple days per week. Boot camps often run a specific duration of time, say four to six weeks, which creates a team-like environment for class members. Other boot camps run year-round and students purchase package pricing for classes, similar to subscriptions that allow them a set amount of classes per week or per month.

Boot camps can be held indoors at a gym, outdoors in a park or on a beach, in a

How are Fitbit Users Finding New Ways to Achieve Their Fitness Goals?

Shelter-in-place orders have changed much of Fitbit users’ everyday lives. We’ve been staying home, getting more quality rest (a happy surprise), cooking more, and finding new ways to stay active, given that our step counts are down. But, our resting heart rates have improved across the board, which is great news for heart health.  

When it comes to staying active, we’ve had to get creative—and Fitbit users have risen to the challenge. In fact, data from mid-April shows that more users exercised one to two times a week in April 2020 than in April 2019. (Exercises were either auto-detected or manually logged on users’ Fitbit devices, and lasted for a duration of at least 15 minutes.) This rings true across major American cities including San Francisco, Denver, and New York, as well as global cities including Paris, Seoul, and Tokyo—with Madrid being one notable exception.  

Note that week 15 is
