About US

We’re more than a gym. We’re a community.

City Fitness is a Philadelphia-based active lifestyle brand. We create spaces that help you become the best version of yourself. That doesn’t just mean building stunning gyms with state-of-the-art technology. It also means building a community that supports you.

Together, we believe we can make this city an even better place.

our story

In 2007, our founder, Ken Davies, opened the first City Fitness at Second St. and Spring Garden Ave. in Northern Liberties.

He envisioned a gym that felt like a second home to its members. He built the club around three core values: clean facilities, a welcoming environment, and cutting-edge equipment and programming.

As we’ve grown, those promises have remained at the center of what we do. City Fitness has since expanded to six locations throughout Philadelphia, with a community of more than 16,000 members.

We also support active lifestyles in Philly through several initiatives outside of the clubs. We’ve hosted concerts. Helped build parks. Created public art installations. It’s all part of our mission to help make Philly the most vibrant city in the United States.
