Are you health conscious? Love being around health oriented people? In 1984 LA fitness opened its first health club in Los Angeles, California. The company expanded in the 1990’s by purchasing under-performing clubs in the Southern California area. They would then take these clubs, develop them and reopen them as newly constructed properties.
By the middle of the 90’s the club had been redesigned to give the members multiple ways to work out. Many of these sites included not just cardio, group exercise, and free weights but also a swimming pool and court sport areas.
By building new clubs and acquiring under performing club chains throughout the nation, LA Fitness ascended to the top and became the “King” of the gym mountain and has added over 180 new clubs between 2006 to 2009.
The behemoth fitness club chain remains a privately owned company and currently owns and operates over 620 clubs across the United States and Canada. They also opened up fitness clubs across the pond in London.
Today, they are now constantly on top of the list of Club Industry’s Top 100 Clubs of the year with yearly revenues coming in at close to $2 billion dollars.
As with most fitness clubs there are lots of opportunities in the LA Fitness family. One of the most important jobs is the Fitness Sales Manager.
