Personal Training Institute is a unique organization offering customized one-on-one fitness and nutrition programs to individuals looking to improve their health and help them lose weight.
The concept was established in 1987 when Evelyn Knapp and Carol Kur co-founded a personalized strength training and weight loss facility. They demonstrated that training which targets muscle strength and optimal nutrition achieves better results in less time than the competitor programs. Relying on a combination of custom-tailored workout session, nutrition counseling, motivation techniques and best in the business exercise equipment, their programs offered great success to participants from first time exercisers to advanced athletes. This became the foundation for what is now the most prestigious and effective chain of exercise and nutrition centers backed by a skilled staff of certified personal trainers, nutritionists and business professionals.
Why Should I Invest in a PTI Franchise?
• PTI gets results. The Company's one-on-one, personal training environment combined with an 80% success rate supports higher revenue per member.
• PTI combines both exercise and nutrition under one roof. Our focus on providing an intimate, one-on-one training environment allows our centers to operate using only 10% of the space demanded by the average fitness center.
• PTI benefits from a high retention rate. The Company's personal, one-to-one delivery compliments personal, one-to-one selling which results in a high retention rate while lowering origination costs.
• PTI emphasizes quality, not quantity. With higher revenue per member and per square foot, fewer members are needed to reach profitability.
• PTI's programs are time efficient and enormously effective, with most of our clients achieving successful results in just three efficient one-half hour sessions per week.
• PTI's low capital expenditure, lower acquisition cost of client and higher revenue per square foot results in rapid growth and sustained profitability.
