SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — September 29, 2015 — Netpulse, the #1 provider of branded club mobile apps, announced today that Youfit Health Clubs is its newest customer. Youfit’s new app will be used to grow the club’s popular fitness challenges and enable members to access many amenities 24/7.
“Our goal is to become the country's dominant non-franchise player in the value-price category within the next three years,” said JJ Creegan, Youfit’s Chief Operating Officer. “There is no doubt that our members are thinking about mobile. Investing in technology like a club mobile app will give us increased velocity towards that goal.”
Youfit Health Clubs is one of the fastest-growing fitness companies in America. Youfit now has 100+ clubs in 14 states, and the company is opening clubs at the rate of 3 to 4 per month. Youfit Health Clubs operates on a unique business model in the tradition-bound fitness world; there are no long-term contracts and no salespeople to pressure users. The company's clubs cater to the average person who simply wants to be fit, rather than to bodybuilders or "gym rats."
“Making working out easy for members is a key part of the Youfit brand,” said Mike Escobedo, Netpulse’s SVP of Customer Success. “Offering access to a mobile app that makes it easier to access class schedules, log workouts from wearables and participate in fitness challenges is a natural extension of that fast growing brand.”
