Gold’s Gym Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy, Permanently Closes 30 Centers

by Taylor Williams

DALLAS — Gold’s Gym, a fitness chain founded in California in 1965 and now headquartered in Dallas, has filed voluntary petitions for protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code as it works to restructure its debt. In a statement issued earlier this week, the company said that the financial fallout from COVID-19 has forced it to permanently close about 30 company-owned gyms. The company also said that the filing would not impact its licensing division and was not associated with any of its locally owned franchise gyms. Gold’s Gym has about 700 locations worldwide.
