World Gym International, the franchisor of over 200 fitness centers in 22 countries, has announced that celebrity personal trainer Gunnar Peterson will join the brand as global ambassador of fitness. In this role, Peterson will serve as the brand’s exclusive health club partner, and will film workout content for World Gym’s on-demand training platform, delivered to its global network of clients.
