Built to address the intricacies that come with managing both independent fitness businesses and large fitness franchises, the platform delivers a powerful suite of tools to drive success and empower operators globally.

The business recently announced its partnership with Xponential Fitness, a curator of leading brands across a variety of verticals in boutique fitness including Club Pilates, Pure Barre, Rumble and CycleBar, to support its network of franchise partners as it expands into new markets beyond the United States.

“The hiring of 150 new roles as part of our continued expansion, is an exciting step as we continue to capture new global markets,” explained Conor O’Louglin, CEO of Glofox.

“Glofox employees will have significant opportunities to enhance their careers across a fast-growing and dynamic sector. Each member of the team will play a key role in further driving our commercial expansion or in the development of new industry leading solutions.”

40% of the new roles will be in research and development, with the rest consisting of specialists to support customer success and growth as Glofox continues their strong growth and further develops their innovative software and customer offering. 

In 2020 the business raised $10m (€9.2m) in funding as well as launching a platform that enables gyms and fitness studios to deliver live streaming and premium on-demand content.

“The ability to successfully drive our vision forward is in the collective hands of our global team. Being totally remote allows us to welcome talented people from anywhere in the world, whilst our responsibility to support them to live healthy, well-balanced lives is something we consider to be crucial in creating an exceptional working environment,” O’Loughlin said.
