Fitness Territory in Russia expanding

Fitness Territory, a chain of clubs in Russia, is planning on opening eight new facilities in 2015.

Founding partner and current general manager Alexander Kolmykov started the expansion of clubs four years ago when he saw a need for options for the increasing number of middle class needs.

One of the programs he introduced were Weight Loss Together and TF Team. Weight Loss Together had teams of 15 people meet three times a week for 10 weeks for a weight-loss competition. Prizes were awarded for motivation. TF Team is full-body training and healthy lifestyle choices for teens to help with body image, self motivation, self confidence.
