Shakopee Young Professionals Group to Host SNAP Fitness CEO

ShakopeeConnect will host Peter Taunton at its next Bigwig Lunch Talk June 6 at Stonebrooke Golf Club.

ShakopeeConnect is proud to host Peter Taunton, CEO of SNAP Fitness, for its next Bigwig Lunch Talk on June 6 at Shakopee's . In 2003, Peter Taunton had a vision to give consumers a fast, convenient and affordable workout alternative to traditional "big box" health clubs. The result was Snap Fitness, a fitness franchise featuring the same great equipment and workout experience as full service clubs, in locations close to home with no contracts and access 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Snap Fitness has since grown into the world's fastest growing fitness franchise, with nearly 2,200 locations open and under development in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, India and the United Kingdom.

Taunton's advice is simple: Find something you love and it won't feel like work. With that as his motivation, he has been recognized as Ernst & Young's "Entrepreneur of the Year" in 2010 and has been featured by Forbes, Fortune Small Business, Twin Cities Business Journal and Upsize Magazine for his business expertise and wealth of knowledge in franchising.

Join ShakopeeConnect for lunch (11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.) Wednesday, June 6 at Stonebrooke Golf Club in Shakopee to hear Peter talk about his career path, the company, obstacles and opportunities and give advice to area young professionals! All are welcome; invite a friend and register today!
