TAMPA, FL, Jan. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire – B2Digital Incorporated (the “Company” or “B2Digital”) (OTCMKTS:BTDG), the premier development league for mixed martial arts (“MMA”), is pleased to update the outlook ahead for the Company’s ONE MORE Gym segment, which has grown total revenues nearly 500% in less than two years as it prepares to enter the future of virtual fitness and training.
Greg P. Bell, CEO of B2 Digital, commented, “We have big plans ahead for ONE MORE Gym, including significant movement on the acquisition front, the upcoming launch of our jiu jitsu training academy, and the launch of virtual MMA and fitness training in the Metaverse. We look forward to providing additional details on these plans very soon.”
Two years ago, B2 Digital acquired its first gym in Kokomo, Indiana. Since then, the Company has acquired four additional locations. All have been upgraded to ONE MORE Gym locations. Total revenues related to the ONE MORE Gym brand have increased in annual topline run rate from $257k to over $1.41 million since 2020, headcount has grown 5-fold, and total square feet under management has grown 248% to 87,000.
In addition to strategic growth through acquisitions, the ONE MORE Gym segment has seen organic growth in each of its past two quarters. Total ONE MORE Gym revenues have been growing roughly 10% month over month.
Looking ahead, the Company plans to acquire 15 more Gyms over the next 30 months to bring the scale of the ONE MORE Gym business up to 20 locations, all situated to benefit from local marketing through live B2 Fighting Series MMA events held near gym locations.
“The ONE MORE Gym brand got started in mid-2020 with a single location with just nine employees and less than a thousand members driving just over $20k per month on the top line,” added Bell. “Now we have gyms in 5 major markets, well over five thousand members, and an annual top line run rate approaching $1.5 million, with significant further expansion ahead.”
