#34 How to Build a World Leading Health Club: Joe Cirulli

Joe Cirulli, Founder and CEO Gainesville Health & Fitness (GHF), has led life focused on two things: helping people become healthy and building an inspiring, thriving company culture.


Never wavering in his vision or efforts despite adversity—from working for companies that went bankrupt to living on his last 12 cents in his car—Joe’s quest always has been to inspire human potential. At 24, he started Gainesville Health & Fitness with only $1,700. Today, GHF is one of the most well-known and respected health clubs for the world.


GHF’s visionary goals, like Joe’s own, are well-known among company staff. Focused, aligned efforts leading the company’s vision, developing leadership and motivating team members continually propel GHF to reach its true potential.


GHF’s many accolades include guiding Gainesville, Florida to become “The Healthiest Community in America,” featured on the cover of INC Magazine, and becoming the only Florida company named one of “The Best Small Companies in America, 2016” by Forbes.  Joe was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012 for contributions to his industry.
