Core Health & Fitness acquires Wexer; unveils sector consolidation strategy

Digital fitness leader Wexer has today announced its acquisition by Core Health & Fitness a portfolio company of US-based private equity firm Gainline Capital Partners.

The deal will provide Wexer with the funding to scale its business – including through significant acquisitions to consolidate the digital fitness sector – and drive digital adoption across the global health club sector.

Paul Bowman, Wexer CEO, said: “This is a momentous step for Wexer, simultaneously granting us the support, investment and distribution we need to dramatically scale our business and accelerate towards our mission of hybridising the fitness industry.

“The opportunity to work closely with Core Health & Fitness, collaborating across its portfolio of globally recognised brands to build an even more diverse digital ecosystem, is another huge benefit of this acquisition. We are delighted with our new ownership and excited by its implications not only for Wexer, but for the sector as a whole.”
