Town Sports International (TSI) Adds Fitcorp Private Fitness Division
Acquired Organization's Successful Business Model Paves Way For New Growth
NEW YORK, June 26, 2013
NEW YORK, June 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Town Sports International (TSI), the
owner and operator of New York Sports Clubs, Boston Sports Clubs, Washington
Sports Clubs and Philadelphia Sports Clubs, today announced the launch of its
new Fitcorp Private Fitness Division designed to manage private fitness
centers for both large and small companies.
The announcement comes on the heels of TSI's May 2013 acquisition of
Boston-based Fitcorp, which, for more than forty years, has managed private
fitness centers for companies such as Fidelity Investments, Biogen Idec,
Gillette, Raytheon, Boston Scientific, PTC and Bingham McCutchen. This
partnership allows the successful Fitcorp wellness model to expand beyond the
Boston area and into New York, Washington and Philadelphia. Gary Klencheski,
the former Founder and CEO of Fitcorp, will be the President of the Fitcorp
Private Fitness Center Division.
"We are very excited about the addition of the Fitcorp Private Fitness
Division to TSI and the nearly four decades of experience they have designing,
developing and managing corporate fitness centers," said Bob Giardina, CEO of
Town Sports International. "Additionally, all of the Fitcorp Private Fitness
Division gym members and their families can now use our 159 clubs, which
creates a very attractive product for consumers."
"Our fitness and wellness programs have a positive impact on a company's
bottom line," said Klencheski. "Employees that improve their fitness have
lower healthcare costs, better productivity, fewer medical claims and reduced
absenteeism. The result is a win/win for both the employee's personal health
and the company's financial health."
"Corporations are discovering the benefits of developing private fitness
centers," added Bob Giardina. "What was once seen as a luxury, or an executive
perk, has become a necessary component for forward-thinking organizations."
