Youfit Health Clubs COO J.J. Creegan Recognized by South Florida Business & Wealth

Creegan Among Recipients of 2017 Apogee Awards

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. — South Florida Business & Wealth Magazine – the leading provider and trusted resource for business and economic information in the region – has honored Youfit Health Clubs Chief Operating Officer J.J. Creegan as a 2017 Apogee Award recipient.

The Apogee Awards is a unique program created by SFBW magazine recognizing distinguished leaders who hold positions in the C-Suite of companies. The awards are based on nominations by the public and honor three executives in each leadership role — Chairman, CEO, President, Vice President, COO, CIO, CFO, CMO and Senior Human Resource Executive — representing the Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.

“The entire Youfit family is incredibly proud of J.J. for receiving the prestigious Apogee Award,” says Tom Peterson, CMO of Youfit Health Clubs. “He has been an outstanding brand representative for more than 15 years, and his passion for investing in his team to become the best they can be has earned him this honor.”
Creegan has been with the Youfit family since he was 15 years old, starting as a part-time employee and working his way through multiple management positions, while also earning a dual-degree in Marketing and Management from Florida Atlantic University. Under his leadership, the company has built many system-wide services and trained exceptional team members that make Youfit the brand it is today. Creegan’s efforts have made a lasting impact on the company, its individuals, local communities and the fitness industry as a whole.
When Creegan first joined the Youfit team, there were just three locations – he has since helped build the national brand to more than 115 locations in 13 states.
