    The gym I work out at was a Bally's, but was sold to Goodlife a few months back.

    Not that it really matters - these bankruptcy proceedings can take forever, and the custodian will no doubt want to keep (some of?) the gyms running because they're (presumably) more valuable as a going concern.

    Nah, it's not us fattys that drove it to Ch. 11. It's upper management pocketing those exorbitant fees they charge the members.

    Just learned about this from you, but I never really saw anything tangible about Bally's anyhoo, so no biggie.

    Bally's has a history of questionable business practices. And they wouldn't be the first gym franchise to entice patrons into lengthy contracts only to go out of business soon thereafter.
