LA Fitness grew out of three clubs, each owned by one of the founders. In 1990 Fred Turock, Jeremy Taylor and David Turner decided to get together to jointly manage these clubs, with the aim of building up a network of gyms with first class facilities.
In 1996 they created the LA Fitness brand and the following year they joined the top ten health and fitness club operators, catering to a wide variety of people of all shapes and sizes and with a huge range of goals. In 1999 the growth and success of the LA Fitness group led to a listing on the London Stock Exchange.
In 2005 the team decided they needed more control - they wanted to make sure LA Fitness could continue to provide affordable membership and a fun environment for its growing band of members.
LA Fitness joined forces with MidOcean Partners and exited the Stock Exchange - and since then we've grown by leaps and bounds, buying the Dragon chain of gyms and creating a strategy for growth that will further cement our position as an innovative and fun brand.
LA Fitness now has more than 88 clubs and over a quarter of a million members all over the United Kingdom.
