August 26, 2015 // Franchising.com // NEW YORK - Blink Fitness, a premium quality, value-based fitness club, announced today the promotion of Todd Magazine to President. Magazine has overseen Blink’s expansion of its company-owned locations from four to 37 and has led the development of the brand’s franchising initiative, which launched in June 2015.
Magazine joined Equinox, which created Blink Fitness, in 2012 as the Executive Vice President of New Businesses, where he focused on accelerating growth strategies for the company’s new brands such as Blink.

Todd has spearheaded the development of Blink’s recently launched franchising initiative, positioning the brand for immense nationwide growth and offering entrepreneurs throughout the country a chance to join this successful business model. We have no doubt that Todd will continue to propel Blink to the next level as a leader in the value-based fitness industry.”
