To Generate New EFTs For Your Club
You’ve seen these companies advertising their services

How do they generate these new revenues?

trainers get into the fitness business because they love helping people.
The reason that personal trainers struggle to open their own facility
and existing health club owners find it difficult to maintain their
profitability is because they've rarely been given as much education in
terms of business planning as they have in fitness program design.
Brian's Fitness Sales Training helps personal trainers begin to think
more like managers and entrepreneurs and lets you take control of your
business, rather than guessing and struggling with dead end promotions.
All facets of your business planning are laid out in an
easy-to-understand and easy-to-read format. Implement each section just

the fitness business."

"I became friends with Brian when I was purchased my first health
club in Farmington, CT in 1993. The club I had aquired was poorly
managed and was going out of business and deeply in debt. Brian visited
the club and within a few minutes saw changes that would positively
effect the business. We turned the club around within a short time took
the club out of the red and started making money. After eight years we
sold the first health club for a healthy profit.
In 1997 I wanted to open a brand new franchise with a high-end club
in Fairfield County I called Brian to be the General Manager and we
opened the first club from a sign on the road to become a million dollar
a year business with only 12,000 square feet. We then went on to
purchase a Womens Only fitness club and the property in Fairfield, CT
and over 3 years flipped the real estate for a profit and opened another
start-up in New Haven County. In 2008 we merged our two full service
clubs with a chain of 14 becoming part of the largest chain of fitness
centers in Connecticut.
Brian is passionate about the fitness industry and is able to present
creative marketing ideas and communicate the benefits. Brian had
successfully developed all of the marketing plans for our company that
have resulted in increased revenue. Brian created a staff manual for
operations and trained the staff to sell memberships as well as creating
the personal training program."
