Look What Our Clients Are Saying

"Great post. Thanks for the info. Please feel free to include this on your Blog. Awesome Site! Thanks for all your help."

"After being in business for 6 years we decided to sell. Spending 70+ hours a week and losing money almost every month was not the formula for a happy marriage. We tried to sell the club ourselves, and then tried using a business broker, but nothing was working and we were quickly running out of money in our savings. We were desperate, and`time`was not on our side. We called Global Fitness Association. Their team of consultants took over. Although we were not able to find a buyer, they found a club that I could merge with, thus transferring my members to the club just 2.5 miles away. Global Fitness Association made the whole thing happen quickly. Then I faced another "sticky" problem, the landlord. I had signed a 5-year lease with contained a personal guarantee, which meant that after the merger I would still be responsible for $90,000. Ouch! The Global Fitness Association Team came back with a creative plan that allowed me to walk away by paying only $17,000 over time, saving me over $70,000.

"Don't know how you did it, but you did it. Today I sleep much better and my life is without stress, and my marriage is stronger than ever."

"After being in the club business for about 11 years, each year it seemed like it was more difficult to make a healthy profit. After hearing about Global Fitness Association at a trade show, I decided to give them a call and tried their Performance Analysis Evaluation. I was surprised at the findings and couldn't believe I was operating the way I was. They pointed out that I was doing the same old thing the past 11 years, and that the fitness industry and marketing approaches had changed, but I didn't. After I decided to take advantage of their off site consulting program, I'm pleased to report that in 6 short months I was able to make some critical changes in staffing, training and marketing that resulted in $27,000 of additional revenue. When I've got questions or I'm in need a document or form, they're just a call or a click away. It's been a great, but humbling experience. I'm proud to say that I still subscribe to their consulting services today. It's invaluable."

"Thank you! I certainly could not ask for more. I feel you went above and beyond expectations to ensure that not only was my problem solved, but that I understood the root cause. Your calm, matter-of-fact presentation saved the day for me and my staff! I cannot thank you enough for all the`time`and effort you expended."

"I was just starting a new business, found a great location and was ready to sign a lease, but I felt that something wasn't just right. I had this knot in my stomach and couldn't force myself to sign the lease that was presented to me. Then I heard about Global Fitness Association almost by accident, through another person, so with nothing to lose - and not expecting a miracle cure, I decided to contact them. One of their consultants met with me for almost 2 hours. He really showed a genuine interest in my business plan and my goals. As a result he started looking for a better location, and he found one. The location was much better than the one I found, and the demographics were perfect. He went right to work on the lease negotiations and asked for things that I would never dream possible.

"After several meetings with the landlord, he was able to secure a lease that made sense to me, which included many of the things that we requested. I signed the new lease without hesitation, and without the knot in my stomach. Boy, was I ever relieved that he did the whole thing for us, while allowing us to focus on marketing, grand opening, and staffing. With a three-year lease in our possession, and with a savings of about $24,000 from what I was ready to sign back in the beginning, I couldn't be happier. At renewal time, I will be calling them again!"

"As a former staff member of a major health club chain, I decided that I wanted to open my own fitness center. I secured the money to open the new location from my parents and started the planning process. Before long, I found out I was way in over my head and needed help fast. The problems were many: I had no lease negotiation experience, no established systems or strategies, and I didn't even know how to design a membership agreement.

"Upon searching the Internet, I came across the Global Fitness Association web site. After reading through their membership information section, I realized that I had found the help that I desperately needed. I currently use their documents and forms, and their offsite consultation service and can't speak highly enough about their employee manuals, tour guidelines, performance reviews, marketing programs, and other items that I needed for my new fitness center.

"My fitness center is now open, systems are in place, and the staff is completely trained with everything running smoothly.

"Thank you so much."

"I just needed to drop you a quick note of thanks. I hope this email finds its way to you. Often I am guilty of forgetting to say thanks - today I wanted to change that. I wanted to thank you for all your work on our lease.

"As you were quite aware, we were facing some major financial challenges with our lease and the space we occupied. Looking back now, I can't believe what a dramatic mistake it would have been not to contact Global Fitness Association as my wife suggested. Not only did we receive so much valuable information, encouragement and vision, as a result of contacting you, we have just received a new lease offer from our current landlord that will save us $32,220.00 over the next three years. This is totally due to what we learned from you. I could go on, and on, but that's not the purpose of the email. Just know that I am one very, very, thankful fitness center owner.

"Thank you again."

"For all of the St. George Parish Community I thank you for your work concerning the Land Use Agreement with the City of Lauderhill, Florida.

"You have provided valuable pro-bono consultation and guidance to this project. Further, it was most helpful to have you come from the west coast for face to face negotiations with the city lawyer.

"I look forward to your future help as this project progresses.

"You have received no goods or services in return for your service."
