Boston Native and Experienced Health & Fitness Industry Veteran Steve Stabile Opening Second Blink Fitness in New Year
January 10, 2019 // Franchising.com // NEW YORK, NY - Blazing a new trail for body positivity in Massachusetts, Blink Fitness and its Feel Good Experience® is opening in Medford! Ringing in the New Year, experienced and passionate Medford native Steve Stabile is opening the doors of his new gym in on January 10.
Less than two months after the first Blink Fitness gym opened in Beverly, Stabile is confident that the new gym - located at 465 Salem St. - will offer the Medford community a much needed service. Through Blink’s premium gym experience and accessible price point, Stabile will cater to all Medford residents.
“In the two months since opening in Beverly, we have garnered a strong following among the wellness community and have no doubt we will see the same intrigue in Medford,” said Stabile. “With the New Year, we hope to meet people looking to commit to a healthier and happier lifestyle and provide a premium experience at an accessible price point, and be there for them throughout their whole journey, even after the excitement of the New Year wears off.”
No stranger to entrepreneurship and wellness, Stabile has been an active businessman for nearly 30 years, first launching his own businesses - LocalTel Yellow Pages and Platinum Real Estate Investments - before entering the franchising world in 2005 with Fitness Together and Elements Massage. He opened the first franchise location for the massage concept and won numerous awards from the brand, including the Top Franchise of the Year, Area Director of the Year, and most recently, their first Legacy Award.
Born and raised in Medford, Stabile is passionate about giving back to his home community. Prior to his gym opening, Blink Fitness of Medford has already sponsored the Pete Frates 5K, along with participating in various smaller community events and fundraisers. In celebration of the grand opening, Blink Fitness Medford will donate 50 of the grey $15 memberships to Walnut Street Center.
“Steve’s strong franchising history, as well as his passion for wellness in his home community makes him a great partner to bring Blink Fitness in Medford,” said CEO Todd Magazine. ”There is no doubt that he will continue providing our Feel Good Experience® throughout Boston, creating lasting healthy and happy communities for years to come.”
