Amped Fitness announced it acquired four former YouFit gyms in Florida, enabling the fitness chain to enter four new markets. The company expects to open the gyms in September 2023.

“We are so excited to bring Amped Fitness to these four new cities. We know what we’ve created is worlds away from anything else we’ve seen in the industry, and it’s about time we make sure everyone has the opportunity to experience the difference that we bring. We can’t wait to share what else we’ve got going on behind the scenes; this is only the beginning.” said Travis Labazzo, CEO of Amped Fitness.

Amped Fitness has grown in its local market since 2016, when owners Travis Labazzo and Stephen Thomas opened their first club in St. Petersburg, FL. Since then, Amped Fitness said it has expanded to “17 corporate-owned clubs with over 70,000 members while maintaining an average year-over-year growth of 115 percent.”

“We’re thrilled to be taking over existing gym locations and continuing our industry takeover while bringing something new to the neighborhood. Our goal has always been to provide a next-level fitness experience to the community, and we will never lose sight of the importance of making sure our members feel empowered to adopt a healthy lifestyle. We are confident our continued expansion will enable us to make a difference in the lives of even more people,” continued Labazzo.
