HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - Another local business has fallen due to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis in New Jersey, as the Corporate Owner of the gym, 24-Hour Fitness Worldwide, LLC, has filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protection in Bankruptcy Court in Delaware on Monday morning.
24-Hour Fitness Super Sport in Hasbrouck Heights will not re-open its doors, according to an announcement on its corporate website. A note with on the page with the Closed Gym Locations for New Jersey noted "24-Hour Fitness has made the difficult decision to close the following locations." A sign on the front doors noted indicated that the site is closing.
Several other sites will also not re-open, including those in Piscataway, Saddle Brook, Wayne Town Center, Whippany, and Woodbridge. The following Bergen County locations will remain open, Englewood Cliffs, Paramus, and Ramsey.
Hasbrouck Heights resident Rosa Cappadona, her husband and son, were all members of the gym. She said she first heard about the gym closing "from trainers and instructors who were fired. The next day an email came out but honestly it wasn’t well written, and I am sure most people don’t realize they are closing." She said that her family has "been members almost since the beginning and became close to a lot of the staff."
Gyms and health clubs were closed by Governor Phil Murphy in mid-March as part of his executive order closing non-essential businesses. As of Sunday, the governor has yet to announce a target re-opening date for these businesses.
