38 Cardinal Fitness Locations Convert to Orland Park, IL-Based Charter Fitness Brand

Orland Park, IL, September 21, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Orland Park, IL-based Charter Fitness Franchising LLC is rebranding 38 Cardinal Fitness health club locations into the Charter Fitness brand. The conversion will include clubs in Chicagoland, Northwest Indiana and downstate Illinois, and will have no effect on ownership or local management of the locations. A complete list of clubs can be found at CharterFitness.com.

The Charter Fitness conversion took place upon the announcement that Charter Fitness Franchising LLC became registered to franchise the Charter Fitness health club brand nationally.

Charter Fitness Director of Sales Dan Collins says, “We are very excited to convert Cardinal Fitness to Charter Fitness. As a nationwide franchise, this will give us the opportunity to increase focus on the member experience and provide our communities with the best-in-class fitness services. We want to let our members know that they can continue to expect the same great service, spotless facilities and tremendous value that they have come to expect from the Cardinal Fitness name but now under the Charter Fitness name.”

Many of the converted clubs may receive new facilities, renovations, updated equipment and increased number of personal trainers. All current Cardinal Fitness member contracts will remain in effect and Charter Fitness will continue to offer memberships for as low as $10 per month. Club conversions commenced on Sept 1, 2011. Charter Fitness expects to hire more than 200 new employees over the next 12 months, mostly as personal trainers.
