CHANHASSEN, Minn. – Snap Fitness, the fitness concept centered around its ‘for the feeling’ mantra – focused on how exercise makes a person feel – announced today Andi Ruth-Negrini as its new VP of Franchise Development for U.S. and Canada.

Previously, Ruth-Negrini was the brand’s Director of North American Franchising. In her new role, she will lead the brand’s franchise development efforts in targeted growth markets throughout the U.S. and Canada.

“My exposure to fitness franchising and the current domestic development landscape while at Snap Fitness gives me an even stronger foundation of knowledge as I enter this exciting new role,” said Ruth-Negrini. “The brand is in an exciting stage of growth with a strong pipeline, and I look forward to leading the charge on franchise development.”

With over thirteen years of experience in franchising, Ruth-Negrini brings extensive knowledge in supporting strategic and thoughtful business growth with her to her new role. In her previous positions, she has been responsible for sourcing site opportunities for companies across multiple industries. Her familiarity with franchise development makes her the perfect candidate for leading the growth of Snap Fitness across North America.

“Andi is an exceptionally talented individual and we’re thrilled to have her on our team in a new role that continues to support Snap Fitness’ growth,“ said Ty Menzies, the global CEO of Snap Fitness. “With our franchise development team as strong as ever, we’re ready to take Snap Fitness to heights never seen before.”

Inspiring a current membership base of more than 1-million at 1,000-plus clubs around the globe with its new ‘for the feeling’ mantra, Snap Fitness is leveraging its branding and operational competitive advantages to embolden its franchising plans. The strategic expansion intends to deepen the stronghold Snap Fitness has in smaller markets that other large fitness brands tend not to operate in. Likewise, Snap Fitness has heightened its interest in suburban and urban markets with its refreshed brand positioning and advanced in-gym amenities.

Globally, Snap Fitness has locations in more than 20 countries, with over 640 units in the United States and Canada, 85 units in the United Kingdom, and 300 units in Asia Pacific. The brand takes pride in helping members feel good about themselves after a workout, creating an inclusive, empathetic and supportive approach to fitness.

With an established team of franchise business coaches ready to discuss best practices for successfully running a Snap Fitness, the brand is awarding franchise opportunities to both single and multi-unit franchisees. Ideal candidates have proven business experience and possess an entrepreneurial spirit, while maintaining established community ties and having passion for the fitness and wellness industries.
