Are you a PR whiz? Do you love going to the gym? We have a great role for you!
We are looking for a PR Expert to join our MINT Brand Ambassador program. MINT Ambassadors work to promote MINT to new members in exchange for a free membership to the gym. The specific role of the PR Expert would be to connect with local press, bloggers, and the like, to help bring visibility to MINT and drive awareness.
If you have an outgoing personality, passion for fitness and living well, are ideally a member of MINT (if not, we’ll get you up to speed), and have great connections for PR, then you would be a great match.
If you are interested in this role, please reach out to Alexandra (email@example.com) to schedule an interview.
Meet our September Member of the Month, Christina Garneski! To Christina, MINT is the perfect balance between a traditional gym and a boutique studio, but she knew that when she signed up. What she didn’t expect was to find such a strong community at her gym. The instructors, trainers, staff, and members are a big part of her every day. In fact, she’s such a MINT fan, that when she and her husband were looking to buy a new home, the first thing they did was check the commute to the gym!
When asked what her fitness goals are she replied with “my number one fitness goal is simply to be mobile when I’m 90, and the best way to do that is by building strength, endurance, and flexibility now.” She’s happy to say that since joining MINT she has increased all of those metrics, and had a lot of fun doing it! She’s challenged and encouraged every day by her instructors and fellow members to push my boundaries.
Christina is a devotee of both Katherine’s and Braegen’s classes. She loves the creative, intense workouts that Braegen puts together for TRX Bootcamp, MINT Row, Power Playground, and Flex. To her, the perfect counterbalance to all that intensity is MINT Barre, thanks to Katherine’s deceptively challenging, yet calming classes.
Next time you see Christina in the gym or class be sure to say hello!

Cheers to the future of fitness and wellness!
If you are in business or are close to anyone in business, you know the common theme is that it’s full of ups and downs. For us at MINT the landscape of the fitness industry has shifted dramatically over the past few years; we thrive on change and forward-thinking, and we are nothing less than exhilarated by the recent evolution of the fitness and wellness market.
Since the beginning of last year we’ve experienced two major milestones: first, we launched MINT 14th St, a class and personal training oriented facility mirroring the aesthetic and vibe of MINT Dupont; I’ve launched four businesses in my career, and that launch was the easiest ‘on paper’, but unexpected complications made it the most difficult in reality. Second, we transitioned out of our K Street location after eight years, concluding that predominantly non-residential markets as a whole don’t quite match the MINT culture. All the while we introduced multiple new programming formats, equipment, amenities, and staff.
These company changes took hard focused work, financial investment, and dedication from our team, all only amplifying the ups and downs, but the lessons learned have been far more valuable than the costs. Optimism prevails in our culture and I could not be more proud of my team’s perseverance; we conclude this year and enter 2020 with our most proficient operations ever. Bresni Maldonado has been promoted to GM, and Wilder Maldonado has been promoted to AGM (fun fact: they are siblings!). These two long-term managers know MINT inside and out, and my biz partner/wife Melissa and I are very excited to work with them in these new roles. Director of Programming and MINT veteran Kathryn Kelly has hit her stride and built a diverse class schedule of highly skilled instructors and we continue to attract top talent. Our personal trainer team inspires me every day with their expertise and ability to motivate. As we approach 14 years and look to the future, the MINT formula for the long run now feels more tangible than ever.
None of our success happens without our incredible members, who understand the MINT experience and mission, bring their positive attitudes to the clubs every day, and spread the good word to others – thank you!
