First facility site

Ramsey, Minnesota.

The Beginning.

Flagship Fitness is preparing to build its first location, a brand new 64,000 square foot (2-story) family wellness and fitness facility, on eight acres of commercial land located on Sunwood Drive in the city of Ramsey, Minnesota. There is no major competition within a 12-mile radius of this location. This will contribute to Flagship Fitness maintaining dominance and success in this market.

With a population of over 23,000, Ramsey is located 22 miles north of Minneapolis. The fitness market in Minnesota is estimated to be worth about $500 million.

In 2015, Flagship Fitness conducted a market analysis within a 5-mile radius of the proposed construction site, which indicated that we could acquire over 5,500 memberships by the end of our second year of operation. This projection is based on income, average age and number of children in households as compared to national averages of families and individuals that enroll in fitness facilities.
