    Saw this one coming from a mile away. They sold all their TO clubs a few months ago to Goodlife and Extreme Fitness.

    thats not belly up... thats reorganization. They'll still be open... basically they'll fire a lot of people and try to consolidate some things.

    I hope they stay open for the fact that all gyms in my area will look like New Years x's 10 if Bally's closes.

    I was paying 12 bucks a month at Ballys, not I pay 30 a month at Golds with my corporate discount.
