BAY CLUB: FAQ | ClubSport Health and Fitness Gym

We are excited to announce that your membership options have expanded across the bay. Leisure Sports, Inc. has signed an agreement with the Bay Club Company to merge five of our locations into the Bay Club portfolio and enter into a development relationship for future opportunities. 

Upon completion of the agreement, estimated to be January 2, 2019, the Bay Club will acquire Renaissance ClubSport Walnut Creek, The Studio in Danville, ClubSport Pleasanton, ClubSport Fremont, and ClubSport Oregon. Throughout this time of transition Leisure Sports, Inc. remains committed to the wellbeing of our staff and members. The associates of your property will become Bay Club associates – so you will continue to see the same friendly faces at your club in the months to come!

 

Complimentary Access in the Month of December
The Bay Club has multiple locations throughout the Bay Area, so if you’re one of the many who work on one side of the bridge and live on the other, you’ll have a whole new set of fitness and recreation options available. 

To kick off the partnership, we have agreed to offer complimentary reciprocal access December 10-31. This will allow you to check out the various Bay Clubs in the area. In order to access any of these the Bay Club locations, you will need to present your photo ID and your membership card or app barcode upon arrival. Contact your home club’s membership team for details and in the meantime, please see our current list of FAQs.
