Fitness Together announced the sale of its 500th franchise. The 500th franchise is located in Glen Ellyn, Ill. Since 1996, when the company first began franchising, franchises have been sold in 42 states as well as Canada, Costa Rica, Ireland and Israel.
“We are extremely excited about the growth of the company and the fitness industry, in general,” said Rick Sikorski, president and CEO of Fitness Together. “Our growth is a testament to the great opportunity offered to our franchisees and the excellent service provided to our clients. Starting with our first franchise sale nearly 10 years ago, we have been able to provide personal fitness training to hundreds of thousands of clients during that time. We are excited about the future of our company. I firmly believe that the fitness industry, especially our segment, where we provide personal training at an affordable price, will continue to grow. Our goal of opening 1,000 studios by 2012 is within our reach.”
