Core Progression Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2024


Revolutionary Concept: With our unique approach to personal training, combined with wellness providers all under one roof; Core Progression is a franchise model unlike any other. We strive to deliver the best personal training at an affordable price point, so everyone can experience a healthier more fulfilling lifestyle.

Facility Memberships: When clients become members at Core Progression they understand they are signing up specifically for personal training, not an open gym. Our membership model ensures clients will stay with the studio regardless of their trainer; decreasing trainer turnover and increasing customer retention rates.

Multiple Revenue Streams: We offer 4 different revenue streams, personal and semi-private training, group classes, retail sales, and room rentals to wellness providers including massage therapists, physical therapists and chiropractors.

Low Stress Model: Other boutique style gyms need around 1,500 customers in order to be profitable, whereas Core Progression only needs about 100. This takes the pressure of of the franchise owner or general manager of finding hundreds of customers and allows them to be more individualized with their trainers and clients leading to an 80% customer retention rate.

One Employee Needed: The owner or general manager is the only employee needed to run a Core Progression. Outside of that, the personal trainers are independent contractors which minimizes payroll costs, workman's comp, and health insurance.

Low Investment/Minimal Overhead: Unlike big box gyms, we do not have the overhead or equipment requirements that most fitness facilities need. By having a smaller footprint, contracting trainers, and focusing solely on personal training and group classes we maximize our space to be the most profitable.

Buying a Franchise Guide: What is a Franchise Disclosure Document?

When evaluating a franchise opportunity, reading and understanding the current version of their FDD is a necessity. Considering the benefits of franchising, such as established brand recognition and support from the franchisor, it's important to also take into account franchise fees and franchising royalty fees. Since most franchisors are privately owned companies, the current versions of their FDDs are typically not available unless requested directly from them.
