Founded in 1974 by brothers, William and Norman Dabish, the health club chain, which began as a single inner-city establishment in Highland Park, Michigan. The Powerhouse Gym name and brand has been one of the top leaders in the fitness industry for over 40 years. With 300 licensees in 39 states, Powerhouse has continued to steadily gain global attention by expanding into 17 different countries worldwide. The first Powerhouse Gym still stands in its original location and celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2014.
Today, Powerhouse Gyms International is in the midst of tremendous growth and expansion. The famous muscleman logo is a sign of credibility across the country and is a testament of where this company began. The Powerhouse Gym Trademark is associated with service and quality, and is apparent throughout each and every Powerhouse Gym that opens its doors to over 1.2 million dedicated members.
It is not uncommon to see an A-list celebrity training at Powerhouse Gym, including such stars as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Cameron Diaz, John Travolta, Jerome “The Bus” Bettis, Alex Rodriguez, Mike Tyson and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, to name a few.
