Norcross, GA (PRWEB) March 6, 2008
Just a little over a year ago, Russ Yeager left his corporate job as a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) to pursue his life long dream of opening a personal training studio. This time last year Yeager had one employee, in addition to himself, and 10 clients training in his Fitness Together in Norcross, GA (Gwinnett County).
Today, just one year later, Yeager has 16 employees and over 175 clients being trained in three Fitness Together facilities: Norcross, Dunwoody, and Alpharetta, with a full-time manager and three additional fitness consultants at the Norcross location alone.
In December 2006, Yeager's Fitness Together introduced something that Gwinnett County had never seen before: one-one-one personal training performed in private, fully equipped training suites. "The private training suites allow my fitness consultants to provide clients with the utmost personal attention, which leads to greater results as well as safety," says Yeager. "Clients get results because there are no distractions and they are allowed to be comfortable and just concentrate on the workout instead of everything going on around them or having to wait on equipment like the big gyms."
Yeager believes his growth and success are due to providing a service that is so unique and having a fantastic staff. "If they are not both great fitness trainers AND great people then I don't hire them!" says Yeager. "Our job goes beyond program design, instructing proper form, and counting reps. So much of what we do is relating to people. Being able to key in on what motivates different individuals is huge."
The type of growth demonstrated by Yeager's Fitness Together studios is tremendous for the personal training industry, even for a Fitness Together franchise, which is the largest personal training company in the world with over 400 Fitness Together locations nationwide and internationally. The Fitness Together Franchise Corporation is headquartered in Highlands Ranch, CO.
