Entrepreneur Magazine reveals Get In Shape For Women as one of the top fitness franchises in the world.

New business owners and seasoned franchisees alike are looking to Get In Shape For Women (GISFW) as a model that continues to buck the stagnant trend of the economy. With over 70 studios open across 12 states, including: Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, New Jersey, and Maryland, GISFW holds up its end of the bargain by demonstrating 100% growth every year for the past four years.

Being named as one of the top 500 Franchises in 2011 was no surprise to President and CEO, Brian Cook. "We aim to continue increasing our ranking and continue offering the only Body Transformation Model in the market for women today. We are very honored to be recognized on the Franchise 500 list by Entrepreneur Magazine and be a part of the 10% of businesses on the list ranked for the first time." Entrepreneur Magazine considers the most important factors in their ranking to include financial strength and stability, growth rate, and size of the system. GISFW projects doubling in size again in 2011 with at least 120 studios open by year-end. A testament to the stability of the business model, a studio has never closed down since GISFW was founded in 2006.

The corporate team headquartered in Needham, MA includes Franchise Support, Franchise Development, Marketing, Human Resources, Operations, Legal Support, Construction and Control Support.
