Fit4Less, the budget-friendly fitness chain owned by Canada’s leader in fitness, GoodLife Fitness, has appointed digital performance agency DAC Group as its digital agency of record.

The fitness chain currently has 70 locations across Canada and is continuing to expand its footprint during 2017.

Toronto-based DAC Group will manage and drive digital strategy including local presence management, SEM, SEO, paid display and social media for Fit4Less across Canada. DAC Group / Montreal will also execute a parallel strategy for its Quebec-based counterpart, Econofitness, which operates 52 locations in the province.

We believe that our performance based, hyper-local approach, combined with our capabilities in paid and earned media will drive significant, measurable results to this innovative, fast growing network,” said “We value Fit4Less’ innovation in their field and their passion to make fitness a more affordable activity for all.”

It was clear from the thorough prep work and the deep understanding of our business they brought to their pitch that we are in partnership with a tier-one digital agency.”
