GHF Chosen As One of America's 25 Best Small Companies
Gainesville Health & Fitness was honored to have received recognition from Forbes Magazine as one of the best small companies in America and the only one chosen in the state of Florida.
Joe Cirulli has long believed that the ultimate measure of a fitness business should be the health of the community in which it is situated. In the early 2000s he and his management team set a goal of having Gainesville recognized as the healthiest city in America. They proceeded to mobilize the community to achieve it, and in the spring of 2003 Gainesville became the first and only city to receive the gold Well City award from the Wellness Council of America.
Ask those knowledgeable about the international fitness industry to name the best clubs on the planet and Gainesville Health & Fitness will be on the list. Cirulli travels the world giving talks, for example, on why his centers have customer-retention rates almost 30% higher than the industry average and how he hires and trains the staff that makes such performance possible.
Although utterly without financial resources, he managed to scrape together the $1,700 needed to get his club up and running in 1978. Ever since, he has been relentlessly focused on building, expanding, changing, innovating and, above all, improving his company. He has had endless opportunities to build clubs outside Gainesville but has turned them all down. When asked why, he says simply, “I like Gainesville.”
