55 FITNESS is the brainchild of Brendan Skeen. After over 20 years in the senior homecare industry Mr. Skeen identified the tremendous demand for a fitness facility designed to meet the specific needs of the rapidly growing 55 and over population. Together with his mother, Donna Skeen, who herself has over 40 years of experience in senior services and mental health services set out to revolutionize the fitness industry. 55 FITNESS is a gym where mature adults can improve their overall health and wellness in a truly unintimidating environment surrounded by a supportive community of peers.
55 FITNESS is a revolutionary concept & unique among current franchise opportunities. A recent poll found that approximately 95% of individuals 55+ would prefer to work out in the company of their own age & that nearly 50% of the respondents stated the #1 reason that they did not work out was because they are not comfortable in existing fitness centers. The 55+ population in the US grows by 10,000 people every day, makes up 1/3 of the population, account for 52% of all consumer spending & controls 70% of all disposable income. Help your friends and neighbors 55+ improve their quality of life by opening your own 55 Fitness.
