NEW YORK, NY – A month after opening the doors of his first gym in Liverpool, local entrepreneur Dean Panos is gearing up for the next phase of his fitness takeover in Syracuse. Panos has signed his second lease to bring Blink Fitness’ Feel Good Experience® to more Syracuse residents.
“Since opening in Liverpool, we have garnered a loyal membership full of dedicated individuals looking to live healthier and happier. I am thrilled to continue providing an elevated and personal gym experience in more Syracuse communities,” said Panos. “Our hope is encourage healthy lifestyles and happier communities, and through Blink, I know we can accomplish just that.”
Blink Fitness’ Mood Above Muscle™ philosophy celebrates that exercise isn’t just about how it makes you look, it’s also about how it makes you feel. And because Blink wants every body to feel good—inside and outside the gym—Blink has added a brand new technology to take its member experience to a whole new level.
The Personalized Mobile Companion offers content that is highly personalized to the individual goals of each member. It leverages users’ custom-built profiles that align with their interests and preferences from on-demand workout content and coaching to curated food content and digital meditation programs continuing Blink’s mission to enhance the lives of their members. Not only will users with full access have the chance to actively customize their feed by answering specific questions, the feed itself automatically becomes smarter. Based on browsing habits each member is effectively immersed in a customized experience full of relevant articles and content around the three main pillars of a healthy lifestyle – Exercise Better, Eat Better, and Recharge Better.
“Dean’s successful opening in Liverpool is due to his experience, passion and solid track record in multi-unit franchising, as well as the strong help from the Blink Fitness team,” said Todd Magazine, CEO of Blink Fitness. “Since our launch, Blink has challenged industry norms, redefined what it means to be a fitness brand and brought the joy of exercise to underserved communities. Dean’s background and eagerness to open not one but five Blink Fitness gyms, will help further Blink’s mission and bring our enhanced gym experience to new areas where it is sorely needed.”
Located at 4722 Onondaga Blvd. in Western Lights – next to Wegmans in the Plaza – the 16,000 square foot facility is slated to open in May 2019. Panos hopes that through his accessible Blink Fitness gyms – five in total are planned for the area – people of all ages will find a love for health and fitness.
