Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) announces its representation of Tapout Fitness in the leasing of its first Houston location at 3789 Rayford Road in Spring, Texas.

Tapout Fitness, which features martial arts infused fitness, recently entered the Texas market, opening locations in Austin, Dallas and San Antonio.

"Tapout Fitness is excited to establish its first location in the market and bring its branded fitness studios to Houston; studios offer proprietary high intensity interval training (HIIT) classes with movements inspired by boxing, kickboxing and other martial arts," explained Myers. "Tapout is aggressively growing its Texas footprint, targeting 15-20 Houston market locations, as well as concurrently expanding into the Dallas market."

Tapout's new 5,314-square-foot Houston location, on the north east corner of Rayford Road and Birnham Woods Drive, includes areas for proprietary Tapout branded classes, state-of-the-art strength and cardio equipment, as well as lockers, showers and changing rooms and a merchandise/retail space.

"Currently, Tapout Fitness has 25 studios in development across the U.S. and has commitments for more than 500 domestic and international locations in the next five years," stated Marc Tascher, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Tapout Fitness. "Tapout capitalizes on the intersection of two time-tested and growing activities: fitness and martial arts. This combination has broad consumer appeal ranging from novices to more experienced fitness enthusiasts at every age. Houston is a perfect market for our brand."
