In 2009, Ron started ALT Consulting and was responsible for driving significant growth in health clubs both in the United States and Latin America.

Soon after he was promoted to Director of Fitness Education for the entire 24-Hour Fitness network.
In 2001, Tony continued to pursue his passion for leadership and accepted the role of VP Fitness Services for the newly formed Rush Fitness Complex. From 2001 through 2013.

Director of Product
Andrew got his start in the fitness industry as a personal trainer in 2007. After quickly rising to the ranks of District Manager, Andrew’s markets under his leadership, realized a 70% increase in overall revenue. His consistent and exceptional sales skills, coupled with his strong PT business acumen, eventually led Andrew to accept an offer to join the ownership group.
In 2014 Andrew moved on to pursue his entrepreneurial drive and was instrumental in helping develop the XGT program. He was initially tasked with establishing what’s now known as the most effective sell through strategies for team training inside the four walls of a fitness facility. However, Andrew quickly realized that sustaining the member long term would require a strong technology component anchored to the XGT world-class programming. As such, he was instrumental in establishing AccuroFit as XGT’s exclusive technology partner and quickly began to integrate wearable technology into the XGT offering. He continued to help shape the future direction of XGT Fitness by developing a robust suite of gamification technologies that live inside the XGT heart rate display monitors and app such as: daily workouts, intensity points and rewards, national leader boards, and timers.
Andrew is now a critical member of the ownership team here at XGT. He is also the Director of Customer Success, and is responsible for driving the successful onboarding and launch of each new XGT customer.
