We're proud to be one of the largest and fastest-growing franchisors and operators of fitness centers in the United States by number of members and locations. Join us as we further our mission of enhancing people’s lives by providing an affordable, high-quality fitness experience in a welcoming, non-intimidating environment.
Most of our franchisees do not come from a background in the fitness club industry (and we love that). Our clean and simple-to-run model (typically 13-18 employees per store, total!) attracts men and women from diverse backgrounds.
From other multi-unit franchise owners and investors to doctors and attorneys, what's the one thing that all of our franchisees have in common? An entrepreneurial spirit and the desire to follow a time-tested and proven franchise model.
THE ONE AND ONLY JUDGEMENT FREE ZONE®
We started our business in 1992 and refined our brand for a decade or so before franchising in 2003. We were opening our 5th store then.
We now have:
- 1,500+ locations open (and we're just getting started!)
- Across 50 states and in Canada and Latin America
- More than 10 million members (that doesn't happen by accident!)
