One of the 300 outlets of the Little Gym International Inc. franchise that caters for children, the Little Gym of Rockland has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy this month. The gym provides gym, karate, and dance classes for children up to age 12 besides offering birthday party services. The sudden and unexpected action by the gym, announced to members via an email dated November 10, has left its 200 children members and their parents stranded.

“It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that The Little Gym of Rockland County will be permanently closing its doors, effective immediately,” the email said. “It has truly been a pleasure teaching your children and being a part of your family’s lives.” According to the email, the gym is currently negotiating with other gyms to take in their children members. Records show that the gym has about 175 members. The email went on to ask its recipients to direct all enquiries on the gym’s status or finances to its lawyer.
