CBI May 2016

Todd Magazine, the president of Blink Fitness, the newest brand in the Equinox portfolio, believes its emphasis on the immediate benefits of exercise—the “Feel Good Experience”—will set it apart from, and help it prevail over, other high-volume/low-price (HV/LP) providers. His earlier successes at Pfizer, PepsiCo, and Procter & Gamble suggest he might just be right.

“I love that CBI covers news, events and the latest industry trends globally. It’s a must-read!”

Derek Gallup, Executive Vice President
