How To Start a Fitness Boot Camp Business

The Mindset of a Small Fitness Business Owner

Posted by on September 28, 2012 at 9:08 am

fitness business - mindset I remember when I first started out as a small business owner.  Enthusiasm and adrenaline helped me through the initial planning stages and luckily I had set aside enough money to pay a few months’ rent in advance plus my living expenses. My good credit score also allowed me to borrow money at a decent rate to purchase some basic equipment.  The property I liked was a wreck inside and I had to add new bathrooms, showers, upgrade the air conditioning and electrical system, install a sound system and leave enough left over to start a marketing campaign.

Plan Ahead

If you want to start a fitness business you must plan ahead.  Even finding the right, affordable property might take you a lot longer than you anticipate.  In the fitness business it’s nice if the property can be in a high traffic location but if it isn’t then you have to make up for that lack of visibility with additional advertising and marketing.

Imagine you are getting ready to go somewhere …somewhere you have never been before. This place is said to be SCARY…all kinds of people and situations that could hurt you…emotionally, physically and DEFINITELY financially. You’re nervous…unsure if you are really up for the challenge…you start second guessing yourself and eventually decide…SCREW IT, and you don’t go.

You just stay where you are, in a place that is comfortable, that you control and while it may not be as exciting as the place you were gonna go, at least you know nothing bad will happen.

Now, imagine you were going to go to that SAME place, but this time, you had a few friends with you. These friends have been to this place before and they can tell you EXACTLY what is going to happen…exactly what to do and what to say so that not only does nothing bad happen to you, but plenty of AMAZING things happen, enriching your life, making you have the best time you have ever had and you come out of the experience a better, more successful and extremely more fulfilled person…yeah, that second scenario sounds pretty cool, huh?

IN case you haven’t figured it out yet, these scenarios are awesome analogies to the world of owning your own business (yeah and in this case, we are talking about owning your own boot camp business!).

Owning a business of ANY kind is scary and can be especially so in the world of fitness. You know there are upsides to working for yourself and doing so in an industry that you love, but there are SOOOO many downsides! To name just a few things you will have to think about and do…

  • Come up with a name
  • Lock into a business model that will be profitable
  • Build a website that converts
  • Get your business info in front of potential clients
  • Interact on social media sites in a way that compels others to give your boot camp a try
  • Offer fitness programs that GET RESULTS (yep, that’s a BIGGIE)
  • Create an experience that ensure clients stay, refer others and keep paying month after month…
  • And…about 273 OTHER things you have to do that are CRUCIAL for your survival in the fitness boot camp game…

It is this long (and growing list) of STUFF that you have to take care of that leads many people to shut down their fitness boot camp before any real success and many more to decide NOT to start in the first place.

BUT…what if you had that group of friends we mentioned above that could walk you through EVERY bullet point that exists and provide a path that leads from the start of your boot camp to the end goal of operating a profitable, fun, and rewarding fitness business with few of the hazardous bumps and bruises that those who go it alone experience?

Enter Fit Body Boot Camp.

Fit Body Boot Camp was created to walk first time boot camp owners through the process of startup to the point of incredible profitability. It was designed to take the GUESSWORK out of the business and replace it with sound, proven, and wildly successful plans, systems, and procedures so you aren’t walking along in the dark on a path to the unknown, but instead are walking hand in hand (pretty much LITERALLY) with a team of people who are committed to seeing your business SUCCEED…and not just succeed in terms of paying the bills, but succeed in terms of giving you and your family every bit of success you have always dreamed of. Sounds pretty cool, but you probably want a few specifics, huh? Makes sense…

Ok, so FBBC is a franchise, and the word FRANCHISE scares the crap out of a lot of people! They think huge upfront fees, paying a percentage of profits, having to do things THEIR way…all kinds of STRINGS attached…well, not so much with Fit Body Boot Camp.

See, we are exactly like you…fitness is our passion, and we have been EXACTLY where you are. This is not some stuffy suit corporate behemoth where a bunch of chubby dudes sit around a table deciding how they are gonna milk their clients.

We get excited about helping others achieve the same levels of success we did…we just know that with our guidance, they can do so a lot more quickly, and with a LOT less out of pocket expense! So, instead of some ginormous upfront fee and then grabbing a chunk of your profits, so what is the cost of a Fit Body Boot Camp Franchise and how does it work?

$9997 upfront fee (which in many cases can be split into smaller payments WITHOUT an added fee)

$497 monthly franchise fee

That’s it.

Now, when someone compares the above numbers with typical franchise fees, well, there’s no comparison. We have done the homework and made ALL the mistakes so you will never have to. We give you a business model that WILL work, has worked, and because we are constantly tweaking it to make it better, will probably ALWAYS work!

We are talking from discussion to incredibly rewarding financial success…all there for the taking. And as for the fees, well, most franchise models require huge startup fees (ANY national gym or fitness franchise will  run into the tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars just for the upfront fee) and they also ask for a PERCENTAGE of your revenue.

So in effect, the more successful you get, the more you are penalized by having to pay increasingly higher fees. So, if your boot camp starts pulling in 20k per month (VERY common by the way) and your franchise fee was 6%-8% (again, very common) then you are giving away $1200-$1600 EVERY month! Ours would still be just $497. Oh, and if, like some of your FBBC owners you are pulling in $40,000 or more…you would still be paying $497…

Look, the bottom line is, you can ABSOLUTELY go it alone. Many do, some succeed, but a ridiculously higher percentage fail. It’s scary, it’s hard, and mistakes are expensive. Why worry about trying to figure it out on your own when we have created a system that provides a veritable blueprint for boot camp success.

Yeah…it really CAN be that simple. If you want to be your own boss, doing what you love, and own THE killer boot camp in your city, then why not grab a plan of proven success? FBBC will be there every step of the way, and greatly improve your chances for success.

If owning a profitable fitness boot camp has been your dream, then FBBC CAN make it happen…fill out an inquiry today and be on your way to owning a wildly successful boot camp business tomorrow. FBBC is ready to help make your dreams come true…are YOU?

Personal Trainer Marketing Ideas for New Fitness Pros

Posted by on September 10, 2012 at 12:15 pm

Even if you did manage to persuade your bank manager or your grandmother to help finance your business, at some point you’re going to have to think long and hard to come up with the most effective ways of personal training marketing.


A Business Loan Application must Contain a Solid Marketing Plan

fitness-marketing-ideas-loanIndeed, if you’re about to go cap in hand to your bank manager you probably already know you’ll have to draw up a solid business plan – and a large part of it must contain your personal trainer marketing plan if you want to get that loan.

How much are you going to ask for? This is a question only you can answer, but bear in mind that the majority of small businesses fail within their first three years, and very often because they’re under-funded.

You should have at least six-months of expenses tucked away, so you can pay rent, bills, insurance and marketing costs etc., and have enough money left over to eat, pay your personal bills and put gas in your car! You must be absolutely certain of how much you need to run your business and pay your personal expenses. (more…)

Exposing The Truth About Bedros Keuilian Scam Rumors

Bedros Keuilian Speaks Out

 USA: Bedros Keuilian, owner of PT Power and creator of such products as the FitPro Newsletter and The Art of Selling Fitness, has spoken out about the unscrupulous rumors about him and his products that hit the internet a while back. Google searches for the term ‘Bedros Keuilian scam’ turn up some abusive and highly suspect posts from several people.

“I’m shocked and disappointed at having been the target of some unscrupulous scam accusations online,” Bedros said recently. “It’s telling that none of these people seem to be willing to provide their real names, preferring instead to hide behind a fake user name or identity.”

Unfortunately Bedros Keuilian is not the first entrepreneurial success story to have been on the receiving end of such scam rumors. Fortunately many of the scam stories have been responded to not by Bedros himself, but by many of his satisfied customers. Indeed one particularly abusive accusation was responded to by several clients who all testified to how much success they have achieved since investing in one of his programs.

“While the internet has made it easy for people to establish their own businesses, it has also made it easy for some people to abuse others behind a fake name,” Bedros explained. “Honest people can have their business and image damaged online by unscrupulous agenda driven people, and this is what happened to me – an honest person who has helped many others in the past. It’s a shame these people feel the need to try and ruin honest business people. However with that said, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all my clients who stood up and responded to these people, without any prompting from me. I was very touched by that.” (more…)

Even if you are not in the fitness business, the following four tips will help you decide if you want to start your own business, or possibly help you get your current business back on the right track.

Starting a fitness business is not easy. You have an lots of things to deal with daily that are small alone but combined can mount up.

How To Start A Personal Training Franchise

Posted by on July 26, 2012 at 11:03 am

If you are a Personal Trainer I’m sure your entrepreneurial side has manifested itself at some point. Maybe you thought about opening up a gym, or your own fitness boot camp or maybe you've thought about investing into a personal training franchise.

You thought how cool it would be to have your own business instead of working for somebody else. Or, maybe, you already opened your own business but have been struggling to “get it right”.

Let me tell you there is no doubt that the best way to succeed is to go the franchise route, however choosing the wrong franchise to partner with can put you in a potentially bad position.

One of the biggest benefits of a personal training franchise business is not having to reinvent the wheel each step of the way, because you can trust on the franchise model. It’s proven!

Having said that, I feel compelled to also point out to you that not all franchises are "proven". Here are a few of the most important things you need to be aware of when looking around for a strong personal training franchise brand.

Why To Start A Fitness Boot Camp Franchise

Posted by on June 14, 2012 at 4:01 pm

If you're considering opening your own fitness business to make more money, have a better lifestyle, and to reach more clients then odds are you're an entrepreneur at heart. The idea of starting your own business is very scary because you have so many things to consider, like coming up with a business idea, finding a location, hiring staff, create systems, dialing in your fitness marketing strategies, etc...

Why To Start A Fitness Boot Camp Business_DecisionI just finished reading (listening actually) for the 2nd time the book "The E-Myth Revisited" by Michael Gerber and decide to write a post about the power of the franchise model, especially if you are first time entrepreneur. The book pretty much shatters the idea of starting your business on your own with some pretty scary facts. Gerber mentions the failure-rate statistics for small business: 40% fail in 1 year. Of those who survive the 1st year, 80% fail in 5 years, and of those who survive the 1st 5 years, another 80% fail. In turn, in the franchise model 75% succeed the 1st 5 years. These facts give you a pretty good idea why most people fail in their 1st time small-business venture... They are trying to invent/re-invent the wheel! In other terms, they are trying to come up with models and systems that are already in place and working. (more…)
