Spartanburg Athletic Club Increases Personal Training Sales Dramatically!

Posted January 14, 2015 in News, Blog

The Spartanburg Athletic Club from South Carolina registered with our Standard Consulting Program three months into 2014 and received all their training and support on line. The results have been outstanding as a result of the efforts of Club Manager Daphne Billings and Fitness Consultant Amy Bogan. In speaking with Daphne last week she indicated that the PFP Program has turned her organization around 100% and has given her management and staff a clear focus and direction and has rejuvenated the entire facility. Prior to taking on the program, the club's best previous year produced $25,000 in personal training revenue. With the PFP the organization averaged close to $200,000 in 2014. 

As a result, members are experiencing accountability and a proper education when it comes to understanding what it takes to overcome obstacles while attaining individualized prescriptions for long term results. The club now boasts the most comprehensive and current 90 minute fitness consultation and assessment in the State with members receiving ongoing assessments every 3 months to keep them motivated and on track. As result, Spartanburg is also creating more jobs for full time Trainers to keep up with the demand of clients who want the very best in one on one coaching. Therefore, it's a win all around for the economy, for the clients and for preventative health and wellness as Spartanburg continues to do its part in the battle to keep its region of the country fit and off of the dependence on the medical system.
