Before we get into the details about FITx, you need to know our mission was to create a program significantly different than the world of personal training you’re familiar with. And why did we feel there was a need to do this? Because, in order for us deliver a product that can actually double your revenue expectations, retain the most clients, and be something you’re tremendously proud to offer your customers, there was a need to reinvent the entire business of training. There is an underlying reason why personal training to date only reached mediocre success. Duplicating poor practices, committing to only small changes, or in most cases having the paralyzing feeling that “we can’t change too much, it may upset our members, or worse, our trainers”, are only a few reasons there was a need for change.
At FITx Training Systems, we found more than enough reasons to reinvent the business of training. At FITx, we reinvented how to sell, train, market and retain clients. We realized that with FITx, there is no glass ceiling.
Don’t be fooled! Yes, group training is very popular, and is the buzz in every trade publication, but in reality represents only 10% of actual changes you need to affect real improvement and success in your club. Incorporating group training without changing anything before or after it will eventually lead to diminishing returns and mediocre results; traits unfortunately very predictable in our industry.
Realizing you have succeeded in your business means not only that you were able to turn a profit, but more importantly, you were also satisfied by the means in which you were able to make it happen. Success should not happen by accident, or in part having to compromise having control of your business, parts of your business, or its outcome. I make this point because over the past 20 years, training, trainers, and the business of training seemed to run by a different set of rules. Rules that became contagious among fitness facilitates across the country.
For the past 20 years, the method in which we acquired clients, trained clients, paid trainers, or even marketed training in most cases did not follow the core business plan of the club. Expensive training rates, independent trainers, sales splits, and limited control of training techniques seemed to be more the norm than a problem.
FITx will improve the way you operate your entire training department, because with FITx you will start thinking differently about the entire process of training as it relates to running a business.
First, you need to start envisioning fitness training as a product your members purchase? Is training in your club a product, or just an illusion? What is the member actually buying? What do they expect to get in exchange for their payment? Because truthfully, the past methods in which training was marketed and sold, resembled more an idea or illusion rather than an actual product the client was purchasing. The member’s fantasy, the promise of results, accompanied by a discounted price for a number of sessions or package pretty much sums it up entirely. What the client actually purchased, along with what the trainer actually had planned for each client session, was pretty much imaginary as well. There was never a plan, it was always a guess, and always “hope for the best” from both ends. It’s no surprise our industry, especially in-club training, observed monumental failures. So why does every club operate this way? Simply because, “our competition operated this way”. At some point, somebody had to develop a better way. That "better way" is FITx!
