The announcement was made at Fitness Togethers annual meeting in November. The meeting took place in Cancun, Mexico and was attended by more than 300 Fitness Together owners.

When I took this position a year ago, my goal was to open 15 franchises within the year. The Fitness Together business model is so successful, that I am confident that I will surpass  my goal  next year, Thompson said.

Scotts tenacity and business acumen have proven extremely beneficial in his role as Area Director of New York. I look forward to sharing more successes with him, Sikorski said.
