Founding Story

The idea for Blink Fitness was born out of a desire to create a new kind of fitness experience that was more accessible and welcoming to a broader range of people. The founders recognized that the traditional gym atmosphere could be intimidating, exclusive, and unaffordable for many individuals, and they set out to change the fitness landscape. By focusing on affordability and inclusivity, Blink Fitness has grown rapidly, opening its doors to a diverse community of members who might not have felt at home in other gyms. The company's goal to empower people to take control of their mental and physical health remains at the core of its mission and drives the expansion of Blink Fitness locations across the country. Every new gym that opens is a testament to the belief that fitness should be for everyone.
