Why open a fitness-related business?
The media is full of statistics that confirm a shocking number of Americans, from children to the elderly, are overweight and not fit. One source asserts that 65 percent of people 20 years and over are overweight. At the same time, research is confirming that many illnesses are a direct result of being seriously overweight and lack of exercise. People are spending more money every year on programs to help them get in shape
Personal training is a “hot” fitness service and is gaining momentum every month. As people have more places to go to receive personal training, they become more selective. They look for welcoming, non-intimidating environments and knowledgeable, professional trainers. Those two qualities are the focus at CMF. Our high client retention rate is a direct result of the quality of the training experience we provide.
