Blink Fitness, a value-based fitness club, will open its 50th location in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY on December 21, 2016, six years after it opened its first location in New York City’s NoHo neighborhood.
“Building a company to 50 locations in an incredibly competitive market is a significant accomplishment,” said Todd Magazine, president of Blink Fitness. “We credit our rapid growth to answering a real need in communities. Focusing on the positive feelings you get from exercise, rather than just the physical benefits, opens the appeal of gym membership up to everyone. Through our high-end design and unrelenting commitment to cleanliness, Blink provides a premium quality experience at a value price.”
By 2020, Blink Fitness plans to have more than 300 clubs open or in development through corporate growth and the company’s franchising program.
To celebrate the grand opening of Blink’s Bedford-Stuyvesant club, anyone joining Blink Fitness during the month of December will be entered to win one of 50 one-year all-access “Green” memberships.
The company is also donating 50 one-year Blink Fitness memberships to the staff and volunteers with the Bed-Stuy Campaign Against Hunger, which aims to provide the basic staples of a well-balanced diet to more than 30,000 low-income individuals each month.
