"Our unrelenting focus on the member experience continues to differentiate the high quality of our centers and programs, and emphasizes our strong business model," said Bahram Akradi, chairman, president and chief executive officer. "As our company has evolved so has the precision with which we operate our centers and serve our members. This has allowed us to deliver strong business results and created a solid platform for future growth through new center expansion and our portfolio of healthy way of life programs and services delivered both inside and outside of our destinations."

During the quarter, the Company opened its first center in Alabama, located in Vestavia Hills (Birmingham market).
