Fitness Connection's management team also participated in the investment in Newfit.

"We are thrilled to have been able to support LNK Partners and Fitness Connection management in their investment in Newfit," said Greg Cashman, Managing Director at Golub Capital. "We have enjoyed partnering with LNK on this transaction, and, since 2013, on their investment in Fitness Connection. We look forward to continuing to work alongside the team at LNK to grow both businesses in new and existing markets."

"Golub Capital continues to exceed our expectations with curated, flexible and reliable financing," said Kayvan Heravi, Partner at LNK Partners. "Their team really understands multi-unit retail businesses and how to finance their growth. We look forward to partnering with the Golub Capital team again."
