Berman will be responsibile for all membership sales and fitness operations. He has more than 26 years in the fitness industry, most recently in Atlanta at Iron Tribe. Although Berman is relocating, St. Louis is a familiar place to him as he lived here when serving as general manager of the Clayton location of Wellbridge Athletic Club.
