)-- Achieving fitness goals requires an effective training plan coupled with the motivation and perseverance to carry it out. Owning your own fitness business requires the same things. But simply hanging out your own shingle and being a great personal trainer is no guarantee of success. You'll need solid business procedures, accounting controls, a detailed marketing program, good hiring practices, a well-maintained facility and the resources to back you up when the going gets tough.
You can increase your odds of success in the personal training business and get a jump on the competition by considering investing in a franchise. Statistics show that most business start-ups fail within their first five years of operation. Franchises on the other hand have a higher probability of success. Why? Because franchises offer a proven business model, group purchasing power, industry expertise and operational support.
However, selecting a fitness franchise is a complicated matter with a vast array of fitness franchises to choose from. They range from fast-food style circuit training retail storefronts to multi-story mega-facilities with hundreds of machines side-by-side and customers lined up to use them. There are a few time-tested franchises which stand out among the rest and one example is Personal Training Professionals (PTP) based in New Canaan, Connecticut.
PTP is unique among fitness franchises because of its central focus on one-on-one personal training supplemented by an expandable menu of service offerings including nutritional counseling, massage therapy, yoga, Pilates, small group exercise classes and youth fitness programs. These additional services give clients access to a variety of personalized high quality fitness services under one roof and give franchisees additional revenue streams. PTP clients have the added convenience of scheduling a training session at their home or office.
PTP takes the guesswork out of personal training business operations by empowering its franchisees with step-by-step guidance and the resources to provide clients with the most professional fitness experience possible. In addition, PTP helps franchisees minimize risk by providing start up assistance, successful site selection, comprehensive owner training, a detailed marketing plan and on-going support. Franchisees uphold PTP's high standards by hiring only certified and experienced fitness professionals and conducting in-depth train-the-trainer programs.
Jason Baer, President of PTP, recently announced the opening of two new franchise locations. "I am extremely proud to have the opportunity to share and teach our proven system to fitness professionals whose goal is to guide their clients to better health and in so doing, build their own successful businesses," said Mr. Baer. "Our 11 year record of success is due to the qualification, commitment and motivation of our staff and trainers," he said. "PTP's new franchisees are well-versed in our business and training methodologies and will uphold the attention to detail and commitment to excellence that we stake our reputation on," he added.
