Since 2012, Exaltare has partnered with entrepreneur and family-owned businesses in the franchise and consumer sectors.
ECP PF is one of the largest franchisees of Planet Fitness, the leading health-club chain in North America.
As the first institutional capital in the system, Exaltare accelerated the consolidation of a fragmented franchisee base through strategic acquisitions and new club development.
Exaltare led the company as the interim management team for two and a half years after closing. As the business scaled, we elevated the next generation of management to leadership and supplemented the leadership team with additions, including David Humphrey, the former CEO of Massage Envy.
We professionalized the business and added standard processes, metrics, and incentives to drive repeatable behavior and reinforce cultural change.
Exaltare grew club count from 15 to over 100 and expanded the footprint from a single market to seven geographies, which led ECP-PF to become one of the leading franchisees of Planet Fitness.
