NEW YORK, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Town Sports International (Nasdaq: CLUB), the owner and operator of Boston Sports Clubs, and Fitcorp, the owner of five health and fitness clubs and four managed clubs in the Boston market are pleased to announce that they have entered into an agreement for Town Sports International to acquire assets relating to all of the Fitcorp clubs.  The transaction is subject to various closing conditions, and the parties expect the transaction to be completed within the next couple of months.

Upon closing the transaction, additional information regarding these clubs will be available on mysportsclubs.com.

Bob Giardina, Chief Executive Officer of Town Sports International, commented: "We are excited to add the Fitcorp clubs and the Fitcorp management team to our business.  These clubs add a terrific presence to our already solid footprint in Boston and should also provide us with a platform to expand our Corporate member base as well as expand our managed facility business.  Gary Klencheski and his team bring with them more than 30 years of club operating experience and have been particularly successful in developing programs that cater to corporate clients.  This acquisition includes the 25,000 square foot club at the Prudential Center in Downtown Boston, as well as the Boston Racquet Club, both of which will be great additions to our network of clubs.  We have the capital to reinvest in these clubs as appropriate and are confident that our members and the Fitcorp members will benefit a great deal by the expansion of our network."

Gary Klencheski, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Fitcorp, stated: "We are pleased to be able to join the Town Sports International family and provide our clients, members and staff with terrific growth opportunities in the future. We see great synergy between our two companies and look forward to helping Town Sports International continue to be a leader in our industry.  Furthermore, we are extremely excited to launch the new Fitcorp Corporate Fitness Division, which will expand our ability to manage private fitness centers through the delivery of high quality, state-of-the-art fitness and wellness services to corporations within the geographic market now being served by the more than 160 clubs in the TSI network."
