FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Jan. 7, 2018 // PRNewswire // - PickUp USA Fitness (www.pickupusafitness.com) announced today that they have awarded a new franchise in Fort Lauderdale, FL. This will be the second PickUp USA gym that will open in Florida, joining their club located at 4515 Oak Fair Blvd, Suite #102 in Tampa. PickUp USA also has gyms in Arizona, California, Nevada, and Texas.
Founded in 2011, PickUp USA gyms are full-service fitness clubs with services focused on basketball. Their clubs offer group and private basketball training, weight and cardio rooms, lounges, locker rooms, retail merchandise, and the company's main attraction - pickup basketball with referees.
Ramon and Stacy Scott are the owners of the new PickUp USA club in Fort Lauderdale. "When we first came across the PickUp USA franchise opportunity, we were very intrigued," said Stacy. "After going through the process of learning about the company, and the services they offer customers, we realized it was a perfect fit for our community."
The Scotts are heavily involved with the basketball community in the Fort Lauderdale area. Ramon plays basketball in a local adult league, and their son is involved with travel basketball. "I've seen the need for something like PickUp USA in our area for a long time," says Ramon. "PickUp USA is going to be a great addition to the basketball scene in South Florida."
In a statement released from PickUp USA's corporate office in Los Angeles, PickUp USA President and Founder, Jordan Meinster, emphasized the potential for the new location in South Florida. "Our Tampa location has been outperforming expectations, and we have been very eager to expand into the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area for quite some time," says Meinster. "Stacy and Ramon fully understand the vision of our brand, and are truly perfect partners for us in South Florida. We're beyond excited."
Fort Lauderdale is a city on Florida's southeastern coast, known for its beaches and boating canals, upscale restaurants, bars, boutiques and luxury hotels. The Fort Lauderdale area also has a robust and growing basketball culture that the Scotts referenced as a major reason for their desire to bring PickUp USA to the area.
PickUp USA Fort Lauderdale is aiming to open in mid 2018. More information on PickUp USA can be found at: www.pickupusafitness.com
