With a fitness franchise, you have the opportunity to help others reach their fitness goals and make a good living. But there is a fitness franchise that provides individuals with special specials with an inclusive and adaptive training program: Special Strong. The Special Strong franchise provides an adaptive and inclusive fitness program for individuals with special needs. The fitness franchise was founded in 2016 by Daniel Stein, who overcame a learning disability, and his wife, Trinity. They began franchising in 2020, and since then have expanded the brand to several locations across the country. As a franchisee, you have two options to franchise with Special Strong: a home-based model and a brick-and-mortar location. All new franchisees do the home-based model first. With this model, adaptive clients are trained in-home or at affiliated gyms. Once you do well with this model, you have the opportunity to run a brick-and-mortar location. At the core of the fitness franchise are faith based values that emphasize stewardship, transparency, and no judgement.
You will also benefit from great support and training. In terms of support and training, you can expect a two-week in-person training program in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, called Special University. You will learn everything you need to know about the business during this program including sales and lead generation. Additionally, franchisees shadow professional Special Strong Trainers and work with adaptive athletes. You complete the training program with business, financial, and marketing plans. Veterans are incentivized to invest with a 5% discount on the initial franchise fee.
