Highlands Ranch, CO (PRWEB) April 3, 2007
For the third year in a row, the Fitness Together Franchise Corporation (FTFC) gained ground on the Entrepreneur's list of best franchises for 2007.
Fitness Together, based in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, has shown steady growth in the three categories monitored and published by Entrepreneur, respective of their Franchise 500® rank, Fastest-Growing Franchises, and America's Top Global Franchises.
Fitness Together Franchise Corporation began franchising in 1996 in response to the demand of the growing personal training industry. Founded by Rick Sikorski in 1983, Fitness Together offers professional personal training services to people of all ages; whether 15 or 80 years of age. With over 400 franchises nationwide with locations in Canada and Mexico, and plans to open more units in Europe and Asia, Fitness Together is showing rapid growth, more than doubling in size in the last two years.
Fitness Together has shown steady improvements. Entrepreneur ranked Fitness Together as #259 in their 2005 top 500 rankings, two years later they moved ahead to #77. Fitness Together also jumped 12 spots in Entrepreneur's fastest-growing rankings to reach #41, and then achieved #72 on America's Top Global Franchise list, up from #178 just two years earlier.
"I believe there are two primary reasons for our fantastic growth and stability," reports Rick Sikorski, founder and CEO of Fitness Together, "First, adherence to a set of proven business systems that our team has spent the last 24 years into fine-tuning, and secondly, these systems contribute to helping our owners have the ability to be absentee owners, if they want that option. Something only a systematic approach can enable business owners to do."
Fitness Together provides ongoing support, newsletters, meetings, toll free support lines, security and safety procedures and even purchasing cooperatives for their owners. They have intensive consumer education and marketing systems in place to ensure a steady stream of clients visit a Fitness Together facility nearest them, and the FTFC has a co-operative advertising program in place for their owners.
