MADabolic Inks Deal to Open Strength-Focused Fitness Concept in Stamford


STAMFORD, Conn. – MADabolic, the fastest growing athletic strength and conditioning franchise that stands alone in an oversaturated cardio-focused fitness culture and is redefining fitness, has announced the signing of an agreement to bring its concept to Stamford.

This will be the first MADabolic location in Connecticut. For local fitness enthusiasts committed to finding a true athletic strength and conditioning training program, MADabolic will be the first of its kind.

“There’s myriad of reasons we chose to invest in MADabolic – the product itself is the best on the market and the research and insight that Kirk and Brandon bring to the concept is unmatched,” according to a spokesperson for the new ownership group. “After experiencing MADabolic for the first time at the Arlington location, we knew it was something we needed to become part of and we can’t wait to share this with driven and committed fitness enthusiasts in Stamford.”

Founded in Charlotte, N.C. by former professional hockey players Brandon Cullen and Kirk Dewaele, MADabolic is a high-performing fitness concept that attracts an established community of fitness enthusiasts which includes former athletes and athletic minded, driven individuals. Rather than over-emphasizing cardio, MADabolic starts with strength as the base and adds in athletic movement that creates stamina and durability.

“Too often in today’s fitness culture, consumers are led to believe that more is always better, when in actuality, better is better,” said Cullen. “With this signed agreement, we are confident that the local owners will create a passionate, enthusiastic following in the Stamford market where high-energy over-achievers looking for a true athletic workout will find long-term results.”

The MADabolic experience is built around a carefully structured daily workout with a well-curated warm-up specific to the goals being achieved that day. Each 50-minute class includes a detailed description of the workout, how clients should approach the workout with notes on intensity, pacing and then demonstrate how all the movements are performed. Trainers provide an exact setup and points of performance on how to do each movement correctly.

MADabolic prioritizes the value of the fitness program on the floor, creating a results-driven culture that attracts high achievers who value structure, accountability and results.

The signed agreement in Stamford comes as MADabolic continues to strengthen its system through franchising into key markets across the United States, including Raleigh, Arlington, D.C., Austin, Asheville, Greenville, Atlanta and Charlotte. The fitness brand is actively seeking qualified franchise prospects with a vested interest in strength and conditioning, as well as a connection to their local fitness community. They should also be willing to be hands-on with their business and confident in their ability to make it stand out in their market using the tools and resources provided by the MADabolic corporate team.

Ideal MADabolic franchisees are individuals that the members can look up to as a role model, such as former professional athletes as well as lifelong athletes, those with strong athletic backgrounds and high-achievers with a strong sense of confidence.
