Tony Ueber Leaves 24 Hour Fitness

Tony Ueber

In a statement, 24 Hour Fitness shared CEO Tony Ueber has left the company. The brand’s COO, Karl Sanft, has taken over in the interim.

“Tony Ueber has decided to leave 24 Hour Fitness and Karl Sanft has been promoted to the role of interim CEO in a seamless transition that has no impact on our clubs or member experience,” said a 24 Hour Fitness spokesperson, in a statement shared with Club Solutions.

Ueber was appointed CEO of 24 Hour Fitness in January of 2019.

In June 2020, 24 Hour Fitness voluntarily filed for relief under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, with plans to restructure. The brand exited Chapter 11 on December 31, 2020.

Through Chapter 11, 24 Hour Fitness shed around 150 locations, and was able to divest much of the $1.4 billion in debt it had prior to filing for Chapter 11. 

Sanft has been with the organization since April 2019, and was formerly with Best Buy for 20 years.
