Bean, a former CEO of Dallas-based Gold’s Gym, and Omeed Shams, previously chief executive at Coppell’s gaming app Kwest, founded Lumin Fitness in 2019. Last month we told you the story behind their pioneering fitness studio and franchise concept, which debuted to the public on Sept. 9 at a 2,600-square-foot space in Las Colinas.

Billed as The World’s Smartest Fitness Studio, the state-of-the-art facility features wall-to-wall LED screens and the latest advances in AI, digital display, motion tracking, and object detection, all aimed at creating an immersive, hyper-personalized fitness experience.

“What we’re looking to do at Lumin Fitness is combine in-person brick-and-mortar experience [with the] hyper-personalized gamified experience,” Bean told Dallas Business Journal. “Those elements are important because they create that motivation for the consumer to keep coming back.”
