LOW COST FRANCHISING

A Fitness Business Model Created Just for You

Fit Body Boot Camp exists to empower its owners . FBBC was designed to be the anti-franchise franchise; that’s why we work so hard to keep our fees low and our monthly royalties reasonable and flat. We don’t nickel and dime you to death. But we do deliver fanatical franchise support and unmatched systems every step of the way.

We’ll never demand a percentage of your profits each month because we don’t punish our owners for being successful. We believe that you should keep more of the money that you make.

This model was designed and created to be the best business model in the entire fitness industry. Our founder, Bedros Keuilian created the FBBC model with three things in mind: First, for it to be simple and elegant in design. Second, for it to provide the most effective fitness and fat loss results for your clients. And finally, to be a highly profitable and successful business for you, our franchise owners.

A GREAT INVESTMENT EVEN IF YOU AREN’T A PERSONAL TRAINER

You don’t need any fitness experience to own a Fit Body Boot Camp, you just need to hire great trainers, and we’ll show you how every step of the way. We’ll teach you how to find, hire, and train a great staff so that you can run your Fit Body Boot Camp location working only a few hours per day, or to free up your time so that you can focus on growing into multiple locations. No matter your goal, we’ll show you how at our hands on, new owner and trainer education and training center known as FBBC University in Southern California.

EXPENSIVE EQUIPMENT NOT REQUIRED

Most fitness franchises would force you to purchase, operate, and maintain tens of thousands of dollars of complicated machines and equipment. With Fit Body Boot Camp you won’t be dealing with anything like that. Just some plush floors and a few weights and our low-cost propriety training system and you’ll be in business.
This keeps build out costs down and makes it remarkably easy and affordable to quickly launch your first location.

LOYALTY DISCOUNT ON ADDITIONAL LOCATIONS

Ready to open up a second, third, or fourth location? We believe in showing loyalty to you, our FBBC owners, by giving you a discount on additional locations, and that’s why we have more multi-location owners than any other fitness brand out there!

FLAT RATE ROYALTIES

That’s right. We don’t believe you should be penalized for making more money; in fact, we actually want to reward you for running a successful business. That’s why we fix our monthly royalty rate at $997/month.

Some might call us crazy for demanding so little out of our franchisees. We believe the opposite to be true. The more money you have left over, the more you can invest into the success of your business.

DONE-FOR-YOU BOOTCAMP WORKOUTS

We’ll give you over a year’s worth of professionally designed workouts so that you don’t have to spend time creating your workout every day. Every workout is professionally designed to give your clients a fun, high energy, fat-burning session. That’s the Fit Body Boot Camp Afterburn advantage!

UNSTOPPABLE FAT-LOSS FORMULA MEAL PLANS, NUTRITIONAL MANUAL, AND COACHING

How do Fit Body Boot Camp clients get amazing fat loss and body toning results so quickly? Simple, we certify and educate you and your coaches through our proven and RD-designed fat loss nutritional coaching program, so that you can deliver world-class results and keep clients for the long haul!

ACCESS TO FBBC FAT LOSS NUTRITION CERTIFICATION

A healthy, sustainable nutritional plan is crucial to any weight loss program. That’s why we partnered with expert dietician Grace Haecker to create our own nutrition certification for your coaches. With the Fat Loss Coach certification, you and your coaches will be able to easily explain the basic principles of healthy eating and get your clients excited about their new meal plans!.

Group Fitness Concepts like Fit Body Boot Camp Yield Strong Results for Both Members and Franchise Owners 1024 754 WebDev

Group Fitness Concepts like Fit Body Boot Camp Yield Strong Results for Both Members and Franchise Owners

Group training has taken the fitness industry by storm, and it’s clocking in as one of the wellness segment’s top trends for yet another year

From increased accountability to a greater sense of community, the benefits of group fitness classes for gym-goers are apparent. 

However, group fitness concepts are just as advantageous for business owners looking to break into the $94 billion fitness industry. On-trend gym franchises like Fit Body Boot Camp offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to capitalize on fast-growing demand for group-based fitness, while helping clients achieve their wellness goals. 

Here’s why group fitness franchises yield results for Fit Body Boot Camp clients and business owners alike: 

Strength in Numbers: Fit Body Boot Camp’s Benefits for Clients

Beyond just a quick sweat session, group fitness sessions at Fit Body Boot Camp offer clients the benefit of a community atmosphere, in a setting that’s engaging, interactive and fun. 

Not only are our group sessions energetic and motivating, they’re also extremely effective in helping clients achieve their fitness goals.

  • Accountability – Half the battle of establishing a fitness routine is building up the motivation to get to the gym. Group sessions, like the workouts at Fit Body Boot Camp, provide that motivation. Because clients book their spot ahead of time, they’re already committed and more inclined to actually come to the session. Plus, after getting to know the trainers and making friends in the sessions, there’s additional accountability from peers.
  • Sense of community – In addition to greater accountability, the community atmosphere created in group classes offers countless other benefits. Working out becomes much more enjoyable when it’s done in the context of a social event, where there’s the opportunity to catch up with like-minded individuals. While working toward a collective goal, it’s also much easier to stay motivated throughout a workout.
  • Consistency and form – At Fit Body Boot Camp, every group training session is led by an experienced and certified trainer, with workouts designed to be fun, high-energy and challenging, so guests burn the maximum fat and tone their muscles. With regular guidance from a professional, clients are able to quickly correct their form and maximize their workout. They’re able to achieve the results they would get from working one-on-one with a personal trainer, but without a costly financial investment or unnecessary time investment.
  • Strong structure – In Fit Body Boot Camp group fitness sessions, each workout is designed to pack a ton of power into 30-minutes. Fit Body Boot Camp combines elements of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and active rest periods to give clients the most dynamic workouts of any exercise regimen. This gives clients a quick and convenient program that lets them optimize their time and get the most from their workouts. 

Beyond Sweat Equity: Group Fitness Competitive Advantages for Franchisees

In addition to Fit Body Boot Camp’s group-based benefits for clients, the second-to-none gym franchise opportunity also yields strong business results for franchisees. 

  • Streamlined model – At Fit Body Boot Camp, we’ve specialized and perfected every aspect of our model – from building needs to facility equipment and layout – in order to maximize profitability for franchisees. Fit Body Boot Camp franchise owners benefit from streamlined, pre-set equipment guidelines, so they never buy too much or too few weights, exercise bands and other items. 
  • Revenue generation – Group-based fitness concepts are much more cost-effective for business owners. Gyms that rely primarily on personal training as a revenue stream don’t run as efficiently as group-based concepts, where trainers are able to coach dozens of members at a time. Fit Body Boot Camp franchise owners benefit from the strong revenue generated by client-heavy fitness sessions that also optimize trainers’ time, and don’t require as large of a staff.
  • Smaller footprint – Many big-box gyms require expansive real estate in order to accommodate countless rows of different machines for solo workouts. Conversely, group fitness studios like Fit Body Boot Camp don’t require as large of a footprint. Smaller spaces help contribute to the supportive, friendly community atmosphere cultivated in group fitness. And, Fit Body Boot Camp franchisees are able to minimize their initial real estate investment and ongoing operating costs, like maintenance and utilities expenses. 
  • Fast-growing demand – Group fitness classes represent one of the biggest trends in the fitness industry – and it doesn’t show signs of slowing any time soon. With unparalleled demand, franchisees benefit from a solid base of existing members and consistent stream of potential leads and prospects. Plus, once clients develop a solid base of their own – in the form of the bonds and relationships they create with trainers and other clients – they’re much more likely to continue returning to your Fit Body Boot Camp. This helps foster strong guest loyalty and retention.  

Group fitness franchises like Fit Body Boot Camp are in high demand – both for fitness fanatics, as well as savvy entrepreneurs. Our dynamic atmosphere and unbeatable business model benefit clients and franchisees alike, helping them achieve their goals – whether personal or professional.

Why the Fit Body Boot Camp Franchise was the Perfect Business for this Former Gym Teacher 895 567 WebDev

Why the Fit Body Boot Camp Franchise was the Perfect Business for this Former Gym Teacher

For nearly three decades, Fit Body Boot Camp franchisee Shawna Kaminski has helped thousands of people find fulfillment in fitness. Her love of sports and wellness, along with an unwavering commitment to helping others, has driven the course of her entire career.

These passions prompted her to become an elementary school gym teacher and, later, open a gym of her own.

“I think the best way to serve people is through teaching, and I always felt called to the profession to help as many people as I could,” Shawna said. “Even just a few years into teaching, I felt like I needed to reach even more people and help them pursue a healthy, active lifestyle. In addition to helping children, I realized I could have a bigger impact if I helped their mothers.”

That’s when Shawna decided to open a small business on the side – a startup fitness studio run out of her home. She would later convert this business into a Fit Body Boot Camp franchise, but at the time, the brand did not yet exist.

In the meantime, Shawna was running the independent, home-based fitness studio on her own, with no guidance or support. She found herself turning to business coaches and other outside resources for direction and advice.

“I went to a ‘fitness business’ summit organized by an unbelievable speaker and business coach,” Shawna said. “He had amazing insights about the fitness industry and its growth, plus all these comprehensive strategies to run a successful fitness business.”

That business coach was Bedros Keuilian, the future founder of Fit Body Boot Camp.

From Startup Studio to Fit Body Boot Camp Franchise

A few years after Shawna heard Bedros speak, he announced the launch of the Fit Body Boot Camp fitness franchise.

“I began doing business coaching with Bedros so I could continue learning from him while running my studio,” Shawna said. “I was implementing all his business strategies into my own branded fitness boot camp. It was such a natural fit for me to jump on board Fit Body Boot Camp once he rolled it out.”

Shawna resigned from teaching P.E. in 2007 to pursue her fitness passion full time. She converted her fitness business into a Fit Body Boot Camp franchise in 2010.

Running a fitness business on my own versus with the support I had with Fit Body Boot Camp, even at the brand’s very start, was like night and day,” Shawna said. “Within the franchise, everything from the marketing and promotions programs, to pre-established client sales funnels and operations – it’s all done for you, based on the best expertise in the industry.”

When Shawna opened her initial startup fitness studio, she ran the business out of her own home and primarily trained clients outdoors. She then began subleasing space at a soccer center.

“The business took off, and with the franchise’s extensive support and direction, I opened my own brick-and-mortar Fit Body Boot Camp gym,” Shawna said. “At that point, I was handling 80 percent of the teaching and coaching myself, along with one other coach.”

Now, Shawna has six-coaching staff and more than 200 clients at her gym.

A Fast-Growing Franchise at Every Level

The exponential growth of Shawna’s individual franchise mirrors the rapid expansion driving the broader Fit Body Boot Camp brand. With more than 700 locations and counting, Fit Body Boot Camp is the fastest-growing boot camp fitness franchise in the world.

Shawna credits much of her own growth to the best-in-class business support while attributing brand-wide expansion to a strong company vision. Driven by a strong leadership team, that vision accommodates unparalleled consumer demand and trends while building a brand-wide community.

“The leadership team at Fit Body Boot Camp is second-to-none in terms of business expertise and fitness industry insights,” Shawna said. “Bedros and the rest of the leadership team always manages to stay several steps ahead of the rest of the fitness industry, helping our brand stay ahead of the trends, capitalize on unparalleled consumer demand and experience such incredible business growth at every level.”

However, even more important than her business’ growth is the community she has been able to build within her business.

“Although I have more than 200 members at my gym now, I’m more proud of the fact that I have a core group of 15 or 20 members who have been with me for more than 10 years,” Shawna said. “I pride myself on the community aspect of my gym, and that level of longstanding member retention is just a testament to the strength of those bonds we create.”

Strength and Scalability are the Keys to Success

In addition to running her Fit Body Boot Camp franchise, Shawna also owns two other businesses, including an online fitness program with more than 50,000 customers.

“For me, it’s always been about helping as many people as I can, as much as I can – which I do every day with my businesses,” Shawna said. “The fact that I’m able to simultaneously run multiple growing businesses is, in no small part, because of the undeniable strength, scalability and support that comes with Fit Body Boot Camp fitness franchise opportunities. As an owner, you can be as hands-on or hands-off as you want because the model is built to scale to any level.”
