The fitness industry vet succeeds Gordon Stirling, who has transitioned to a new role as senior vice president of hospitality and development. Moving forward, Kelly will lead Aktiv’s sales team, while Stirling will focus on advancing the company’s enterprise-level relationships in hospitality and multifamily housing.
“We are thrilled to welcome Mike Kelly to the Aktiv Solutions team,” said Bryan Green, Aktiv’s founder and CEO. “Mike is a highly respected leader with a deep understanding of our industry and a passion for helping fitness operators achieve their goals. His extensive experience in sales management, team building, and strategic planning will be invaluable as we continue to grow and expand our global reach.”

Green added that Akitv felt it was particularly important at this time to invest more broadly in its sales leadership team. He spoke to Athletech News late last year about Aktiv’s unique approach to optimizing gym spaces, remaining on-trend to meet fitness operators’ current needs while providing flexibility for future changes and fitness modalities. 
Aktiv had a successful 2023, bolstered by new and extended partnerships with brands like Xponential Fitness, Plunge and Freemotion Fitness. Aktiv also acquired gym design and consulting firm Fitspace Design last year to elevate its commercial fitness offerings.
