A healthy bottom line, not a flabby one, is the goal of Plus One Holdings. The company designs, develops, and manages fitness centers and health and wellness programs across the US. In addition to corporate fitness centers, Plus One Holdings also focuses on community center fitness programs, and hotel and resort spas. The company additionally trains physical therapists and personal trainers, and sells specialized training and fitness center management software. Its clients include FORTUNE 500 corporations, luxury hotel properties, and financial service and law firms, among others. Plus One Holdings was founded in 1986 as a personal training clinic for celebrities.
The company is exploring strategic growth opportunities, and in 2009 it expanded when it acquired TimeOut Services, a provider of workplace and community fitness and wellness services in California. Included in the deal is TimeOut's Community BootCamp, a community-based group fitness program with seven locations.
Plus One Health acquired Fitness Works at Work in 2010. Fitness Works at Work provides customized corporate health solutions in New England for the energy, healthcare, industrial goods, and food and beverage industries. The company hopes the acquisition will provide improved cash flow.
Founded in 1982 by Iris Sokol, Fitness Works at Work provides a comprehensive range of services including corporate health promotion program design and implementation, corporate fitness center design and management, group exercise programs, and ergonomics services. These services result in the creation of healthy workplaces and encourage cultures that seamlessly incorporate healthy behaviors into daily activities to boost productivity and reduce healthcare costs.
Plus One Holdings' fitness management offerings include program and membership marketing services, such as direct mail, flyers, e-mails, and referral incentives. Its fitness centers also offer wellness programs on topics such as "How to Use a Heart Rate Monitor," as well as classes such as yoga, pilates, and spin. – less
