SAN FRANCISCO, Monday, December 4 – The Bay Club Company (“Bay Club”) today announced the acquisition of PRO Club Inc., owners/operators of the renowned health and wellness facilities in Seattle, marking a significant milestone in the company’s growth in the Pacific Northwest.
Bay Club’s acquisition of the two PRO Club locations marks the company’s third major acquisition in just three months and further ignites their strategic expansion along the West Coast. Bay Club now boasts 26 locations including 10 Campuses from Seattle to San Diego. With a projected membership exceeding 135,000 and a workforce of over 4,000 employees, the company is poised for ongoing, sustainable growth, with more acquisitions coming in 2024.

Caro commented, “this transaction involves the single largest revenue-grossing health/athletic club in the U.S. PRO Club has been a market leader for decades in terms of revenue, memberships, programming and its service levels.”
PRO Club’s Seattle and Bellevue locations offer a combined 600,000 square feet of active lifestyle, leisure, and luxury amenities for members. In addition, PRO Club amplifies members’ experiences with a five-star spa and medical services, such as physician and dietician supervised weight management programs, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and more—most of which were pioneered by co-founder Dr. Mark Dedomenico.
