Two guys from separate backgrounds spent half of their lives pursuing excellence and eventually reached one common denominator – CLUB ONE. Jim Mizes, the CEO, and Bill McBride, the COO, have structured Club One for growth across multiple business channels including health clubs, community centers and corporate fitness centers. Their alignment on key business principles of hiring great people, supporting them with systems and culture, listening to the many voices of their customers and clients and focusing on results is definitely a formula for success.
In the brisk early morning hours, Mizes was cycling around the San Francisco Bay Area, developing Club One’s next successful move. “I’ve always been challenged to be the best,” Mizes admitted. “I think that shapes Club One because we are always raising the bar.”
Taking the bar to the next level has been Mizes’ and McBride’s aspiration. When the two came on board almost a decade ago, they found a business that had the foundation for even more success. In 1991, John and Jill Kinney had developed a health club concept in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District and continued to grow the Club One family with club purchases over the next 10 years. Some of those purchases included clubs with corporate fitness management accounts. By 2002, Club One was ready for the next step in its brand development and expansion into other channels.
