CBI September 2017

David Barton is a disruptive industry influence, a person with a clear sense of himself, his style, his skills, and his dream. In 1992, he created his first club, the DavidBartonGym (DBG), and, with the help of others, grew it into an eight-unit, four-city chain. But, when his partners compromised his concept, he sold DBG. Last year, he conjured up TMPL to “push the industry envelope further.”

“CBI is the best magazine in the industry. The great quality of the people and companies reported on inspires me to be a better operator and leader in the fitness industry.”
