Tru Fit Athletic Clubs in Cherry Creek North opened its doors in 2016 and has enjoyed steady membership ever since. That is because they focus on the member experience and retaining their members from year to year. All of this comes from being locally owned and operated with owners and general managers as part of the larger community.
There are many fitness choices out there and for a low cost but Tru Fit believes they are the best choice for what is included. “A strong separating factor is every club today will have similar equipment, advertising, and value propositions,” said Danny De La Rosa, Managing Partner of Tru Fit Athletic Clubs. “To me the separating factor is the fitness experience. What you are receiving around education, safety, support, and graduation. Each one is important.”
As a former executive with 24 Hour Fitness and having been in the business since the early ’80s, De La Rosa knows the industry as well as anyone. He has been part of a national brand and now with Tru Fit, he is focused on a different model. “Our major message is while we are not a national brand, we really invite people to learn about the Tru Fit team experience and how we can support their fitness objectives in a very respectable, safe, and professional way,” said De La Rosa.
De La Rosa understands the importance of connecting with the community when the advertising budget is a fraction of what he once enjoyed at other clubs. “We are not a large corporate brand that possesses a huge advertising budget,” said De La Rosa. “What we really need to do is integrate with chambers to make sure that people get to meet us naturally and on their own terms and understand who we are.”
And De La Rosa recognizes that the Glendale Chamber is one of the best at connecting business to the community. “For a small company starting up, when you look at the ways you get to introduce yourself to the community, your program is one of the best,” said De La Rosa. “Because it is local and aligned with the same community objectives that we all have and I think in order to really get out and create relationships, we need you guys.”

“Another thing we pride ourselves on is cleanliness,” said Tiffanie Trenck, Corporate Sales for Tru Fit Athletic Clubs. “We have made a lot of steps in the last few months for our clubs. Cleanliness is important to our members.”
The next 12 months, Tru Fit is focused on membership satisfaction. “When you are the new kid on the block, before you expand, you have to earn the right for more,” said De La Rosa. Membership goals are being met at each club but this team is committed to making sure that each member experience lives up to their expectations. It’s Tru Fit’s daily goal to earn and keep membership business by consistently providing elite programming, relevant dependable services, and customized athletic facilities.
