Blink Fitness - Marketing


Fitness for Everybody...Everybody Blinks.  We believe that exercise isn't just about looking good; it's also about how it makes you feel -- both in and out of the gym.   We know that if we create an environment where you feel good, you will come more often and get the results you desire.


Blink Fitness launched in early 2011 and has ~70 company-owned locations open or in development across the US. Blink has aggressive expansion plans in the coming years with both corporate and franchise locations.
