Celebrity Fitness™ offers a unique lifestyle concept, a blend of fitness center with an entertainment ambiance; ensuring workouts are high energy, motivational and entertaining. Many of Celebrity Fitness club members join not only to exercise; also to make friends, join classes, relax and chill out in vibrant club lounges and salons. Celebrity Fitness clubs are generally located within shopping malls so that members, after working out, can conveniently shop, dine, pick up their children from enrichment classes, or go to the cinema. This helps Celebrity Fitness club members to combine a healthy workout with their busy daily routine, which in turn means that they tend to remain members longer and therefore see tangible wellness benefits from their gym membership.
Celebrity Fitness was founded in 2003 by 24 Fitness America veterans: John Franklin, Mike Anderson and John J Sweeney. Their first employee was local Indonesian Hendra Nugraha, now a member of the senior management team. Celebrity commenced operations in February 2004 with the opening of Jakarta's ground breaking EX club. The 'Celebrity' namewas chosen specifically to convey that each Celebrity Fitness club member is a celebrity in their own right; can have their own personal trainer just like film star celebrities; and can work-out in environments inspired by the bars, night clubs and celeb hangouts of Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Miami Beach.
In 2005, Celebrity Fitness entered the Malaysian market opening its first club at 1 Utama shopping mall, Kuala Lumpur (club refurbished in 2011). The Malaysian business expanded rapidly in 2009 with the purchase of California Fitness (Malaysia) gyms.
In 2007, the majority shareholding of Celebrity Fitness was acquired by Navis Capital Partners, with subsequent expansion into Turkey (which the Company exited in July 2010) and India with the opening of the first Indian club at JMD Arcade, Gurgaon (clubrefurbished in 2011). In May 2010, Navis appointed Martin Darby as Celebrity Fitness GroupCEO. In November 2011, Celebrity Fitness announced its market entry into Singapore with its first club at Rochester Mall, Buona Vista.
