NEW YORK, N.Y. - Blink Fitness, a premium-quality, value-based gym that has challenged industry norms by celebrating how exercise makes you feel, not just how it makes you look, has announced the promotion of former President Todd Magazine to Chief Executive Officer and former Vice President of Operations David Collignon to Senior Vice President of Operations.

"Todd's vision and tenacity have propelled Blink Fitness into a thriving bi-coastal, multi-state brand," said Harvey Spevak, Executive Chairman and Managing Partner of Equinox Holdings, Inc., Blink's parent company. "He has simultaneously established the brand as a highly differentiated player and transformed Blink into an autonomous, profitable business. Under his leadership, we look forward to a future of sustained, strong performance and continued growth."

Magazine joined Equinox in 2012 as the Executive Vice President of New Business. A year later, he transitioned exclusively to the Blink brand, serving as the Executive Vice President and General Manager before serving as President prior to this most recent promotion. Under Magazine's leadership, Blink has grown from four to 70 locations in six years and has more than 400,000 members. The business has added a franchising system to supplement its company-owned efforts, all of which is helping accelerate the brand's growth and expansion.

"The last six years have been the most fun and rewarding of my career. And the best part is that we are only getting warmed up. The runway for this business is as far as the eyes can see," said Magazine. "We have an awesome brand, an incredible business model, and the most dedicated and passionate people I have ever worked with."

Since joining Blink in 2016 as Vice President of Operations, Collignon has transformed the Operations team, enabling the business to continue to grow at a rapid pace and to seamlessly expand geographically. With this promotion, David's responsibilities will be expanded to include Franchise Operations.
