unhappybuttonBUTTERFLY LIFE: Jeff Marks, Ex-Franchisee

Butterfly Life is a women’s 30 minute fitness franchise chain that claims to be an improvement over Curves for Women. It was founded by Mark Golob, Tom Gergley, and, supposedly, Mark Mastrov. Golob & Gergley both have checkered pasts and a history of litigation in the health club industry. Many franchisees were attracted by the highly respected Mastrov (of 24 Hour Fitness), whose involvement ceased after they joined. (Read Butterfly Life Franchisees Allege Bait & Switch… of Execs)

Jeff Marks was an early, multi-unit franchisee in GA who claims to have lost $350,000 within a year of opening two Butterfly Life clubs. He says that he paid a $29,000 franchise fee plus a monthly $1000 royalty/marketing fee for each club, yet never received the branding, advertising or operational support promised.
