Bally Fitness was a large American Fitness club chain that went through Chapter 11 bankruptcy and eventually sold all of its 440 facilities located in 29 U.S. states, Mexico, Canada, South Korea, China, and the Caribbean to various operators including L.A. Fitness, 24 Hour Fitness, and Blast Fitness. The company’s headquarters are located in Chicago, Illinois. 171 branches were sold to competitor L.A. Fitness in November of 2011; 39 facilities were sold to Blast Fitness in December 2014, and the remaining 32 gyms were sold to 24-Hour Fitness.
Should your membership at Bally Fitness have transferred automatically to any one of these fitness franchises, it’s very important to contact your financial institution if this has not yet been resolved.
Pro Tip: √ Billing for most of these new locations are most often coming from a third party. Check with your bank to determine who you need to contact if billing for canceled memberships is still occurring.
