Bally Total Fitness (NYSE: BFT), one of the largest operators of fitness centers in the U.S., announced today that it has entered into agreements to sell its 16 Toronto, Canada facilities to Extreme Fitness, Inc., which is acquiring six of the facilities, and GoodLife Fitness Centres Inc., which is acquiring ten of the facilities. The properties include nine Sports Clubs of Canada and seven Bally Total Fitness clubs. The transactions are subject to customary closing conditions, including lease negotiations. Terms of the transactions were not disclosed.

The sale is part of the Company's strategy to divest non-core assets in order to focus on the core Bally Total Fitness brand and operations in the United States. Proceeds from the transactions are estimated to be approximately $19.6 million (Canadian) and will be available to support operations.

"These transactions are important steps forward in Bally's business and financial restructuring initiatives. The proceeds will enhance Bally's liquidity in support of the Company's ongoing efforts to negotiate a consensual restructuring with our debt holders," said Don R. Kornstein, Bally's interim Chairman. "I would like to acknowledge all of our Canadian employees for their dedicated service to Bally Total Fitness and wish them continued success."
