Sharing our NEW club FOOTPRINT

We are incredibly excited to share our new club footprint with you as we begin to see government restrictions ease after an extremely difficult 15 months.  

Although the pandemic has been particularly hard on the fitness industry and Albertans who rely on gyms, we are so fortunate to be able to announce that we are moving forward with 14 out of 21 International Fitness Holdings’ (IFH) clubs as part of our path forward. We have also received court approval for the sale of our business, which is expected to close on June 18, 2021, solidifying our plan to recover from the pandemic. 

With that, we are pleased to introduce our new club footprint:
