Jan 12, 2010

Los Angeles – Reflecting the company’s expansion drive within the Canadian market, MY GYM CHILDREN’S FITNESS CENTER will open its newest location in Canada in March, it was announced by Michael Chalovich, Chief Operating Officer.

Based in Aurora, Ontario, the new MY GYM operation is the fourth location for the franchise which has its other three in Greater Moncton, New Brunswick; Maple Ridge, British Columbia; and Richmond Hill, Ontario. 

Following MY GYM’s high-profile domestic formula of addressing a child’s physical, emotional and cognitive well-being, international franchisees receive comprehensive corporate support in all areas of location selection, equipment installation, personnel hiring, safety checks, grand opening marketing and extensive management and staff training that occurs both in-market as well as at the company’s Los Angeles headquarters.

MY GYM Children’s Fitness Centers ranks as the #1 children’s fitness destination in the US (Entrepreneur Magazine 2005 and 2006) where each week  children  participate in age-appropriate exercise programs and acquire the skills, confidence and positive self-image needed to become healthy young adults.  MY GYM’s state-of-the art custom-designed fitness facilities, extensively-trained staff and nationally acclaimed class programs combine to bring parents and children alike an empowering message of fitness for life.

“Even against a more challenging economy, families always hold the physical fitness and well-being of children as a priority.  As a result, we look forward seeking franchisees that want to make a real difference in their communities while being part of a proven business,” said Chalovich.

“We are both pleased and proud to serve as a MY GYM franchisee.  Since our launch in January 2007, our MY GYM location has become a significant part of the parenting community inspiring children with an empowering message that combines fitness, self-confidence and teamwork.  We certainly encourage business people across Canada to take a strong look at MY GYM as a unique opportunity for them and for their own communities,” said Giorgio Raso, owner of the Richmond Hill MY GYM location.
