Inclusive Fitness Brand Brings Happiness to Houston with Grand Opening and Special Giveaways to Celebrate New Gyms in Spring Branch, Westchase, Glenbrook Valley, and Northline Houston, TX Neighborhoods
December 02, 2019 // Franchising.com // HOUSTON - Blink Fitness (Blink), an inclusive, affordable gym that values Mood Above Muscle®, is entering the Houston market with four new, state-of-the-art workout gyms. With the opening of the Spring Branch location, Blink has now reached a growth milestone of 100 gyms nationwide.
The secret to Blink’s rapid growth is its approach to fitness for all. Blink Fitness is a firm believer that exercise isn’t just about looking good; it’s also about how it makes you feel. In its commitment to putting Mood Above Muscle®, Blink Fitness gyms are brightly lit and feature colors that are scientifically proven to lift moods. Blink takes pride in its commitment to celebrating every unique body and its EveryBody Happy philosophy. Gym-goers are greeted and encouraged by specially trained employees called Mood Lifters®.
To mark this special occasion of the 100th Blink Fitness center opening, the Spring Branch location will be hosting a preview party from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, December 7. The first 100 eligible guests who arrive at the start of Spring Branch preview will receive a free membership, and Blink will be giving away prizes every hour. Kealia Ohai, a World Cup champion who plays for the Houston Dash soccer team, will be making an appearance and sharing tips about her fitness routine and why she shares the Blink philosophy that exercise contributes to both physical and emotional health. KBRE radio station will also be onsite playing music to keep the mood happy at the celebration.
Blink also has three other Blink locations opening in Houston, TX later this year and early in 2020. Staff at these locations are already accepting membership applications, and are offering a limited time pre-opening discount on memberships. All new gyms will offer monthly memberships starting at just $15. By the end of 2020, there will be eight Blink locations in the Houston area.
“Opening our first two gyms in Houston is just the beginning of our presence here in the market as well as our continued growth nationally,” said Todd Magazine, CEO of Blink Fitness. “A growing and diverse population brought us to Houston, where we plan to add 225 jobs to the local economy. We look forward to bringing our affordable, inclusive approach to health and wellness to Houston. We’re eager to enter the market and excited to establish a substantial footprint early on.”
