Brick looks forward to helping the GWS further extend its reach and impact within the $109 billion fitness industry. He founded his first health club, Brick Bodies, with his wife, Lynne, in 1985. Twenty years later, they turned the running of the seven Brick Bodies clubs over to their daughter, Vicki, while they went on to found the largest privately-owned Planet Fitness franchise with 70 clubs in the U.S. and Australia. In 2015, he and Lynne established the John W. Brick Mental Health Foundation, which focuses on evangelizing the “prescription” of holistic therapies and healthy lifestyle choices in the treatment of mental health.
