Overland Park, Kansas, UNITED STATES

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Jan. 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TITLE Boxing Club, the largest boxing franchise in the nation, has recently announced that the rapidly growing franchise has ranked No. 235 on its first-ever appearance in Entrepreneur magazine's 35th Annual Franchise 500® list, the world's first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking.

Throughout its 35 years in existence, the Franchise 500 has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for entrepreneurs. TITLE Boxing Club's position on the list reinforces its strong presence in the industry.

"The past year has been huge for us, as we have seen our most tremendous growth thus far in 2013," explained John Rotche, President of TITLE Boxing Club. "We have been growing at a rate of 200 clubs per year and this is due to the excellent franchisees that have entered our system and the support of our ever-growing client base. We are so proud that the brand is being recognized during such an exciting time for us."

The rankings for all 500 companies are determined using an exclusive formula that takes into account objective and quantifiable factors, with the most important factors being financial strength and stability, growth rate, and size of the system. After all the financial data is analyzed by an independent CPA, all franchises are given a cumulative score. The 500 franchises with the highest scores become the Franchise 500 in ranking order.

"Compiling the Franchise 500 every year gives us the opportunity to share data-driven insights, reflect on areas seeing progress, and acknowledge the companies that have risen to the top," says Amy Cosper, VP and editor in chief of Entrepreneur. "Franchises play an important part in economic growth, and the names in the ranking are leading the way with their continued and emerging business success."

TITLE Boxing Club has 130 locations in operation across the country, with approximately 75-100 additional units slated to open throughout 31 states by the end of 2014. The brand will be opening their first international club in Cancun in January 2014.

TITLE Boxing Club is filling a niche in the fitness industry for both men and women alike. The 60-minute workout guarantees results and takes place in a non-threatening environment. TITLE Boxing Club offers members an interval-based workout program that combines bouts of intense cardio and boxing exercises with short periods of rest. This type of interval training has been shown to provide the most effective work-to-rest ratio, optimizing the client's results.

TITLE Boxing Club does not promote actual fighting in its clubs, but rather encourages all participants at different fitness levels to workout at their own pace. Trained instructors lead the classes, each with different motivational styles and techniques. Some instructors focus on upper body training while others might incorporate more cardiovascular exercises into their session. During classes, members feed off of a group fitness atmosphere while music takes their mind off the intense effort so they workout harder, longer. Along with the physical results, the concept offers clients intense emotional and spiritual changes as well. Members leave each session with new-found confidence and empowerment.
