Fitstyler is the brainchild of Andrew Talati, qualified personal trainer and business entrepreneur whose vision was to create a model that turned trainer's passion for fitness into a thriving business model.
Andrew’s 17 years of business experience has helped design a sophisticated business structure that is fused with a strong emphasis on fun, trust and results for both business owners and their clients.
Answer: A franchise is an arrangement for the distribution of a product and service into the market place. At least two parties are involved; the Franchisor (Fitstyler), who lends the trade mark and business system, and the Franchisee, who pays a royalty and an initial fee to do business under the Franchisor's name and system. Technically, the contract binding the two parties is ‘the franchise’, but that term is often used to mean the actual business that the Franchisee operates under the Franchisor’s system.
Answer: When you become a Fitstyler Franchisee you have access to the Fitstyler name, business concept, the Fitstyler proven system, support and ongoing business development. You become part of The Fitstyler network, sharing experience, advertising costs, and benefiting from the group buying power of a larger network. You are provided with everything necessary to “open the doors” and commence trading.
Answer: Yes. While franchising means you will never have to be in business by yourself, you certainly are in business for yourself! Fitstyler has a very strong online presence and brand recognition with a strong focus placed on working within your local community to generate leads and referrals.
Answer: The right attitude is what you really need to have in order to be a Fitstyler Franchisee. You have to be a fun loving, outgoing, hard working, family type of person. We look for these and other characteristics in people wishing to join us and you will be required to fill out a Confidentiality Agreement and an Application Form.
To be part of Fitstyler, you will need to have your professional qualifications as a fitness trainer Senior Level 2 First Aid, Public Liability and Personal Indemnity Insurance as well as membership to one of the two professional fitness organisations. Some of this will be covered in your induction training.
Answer: Yes. Fitstyler provide full comprehensive training in all aspects of the system, as well as giving you additional support with those ‘once off’ activities which need to be done when you set up a new business. Our technical training is broken down into structured checklists that make sure everything is covered.
Initial training may take up to 2 or 3 weeks and you must be prepared to allocate your time to this. If you do not already hold your Cert III and IV in fitness, you will need to pass this typically 8 week course. You will also need to undertake a brief Fitstyler apprenticeship to ensure you can provide safe exercise whilst delivering awesome results for your Fitmates.
Answer: The total business opportunity could amount to $70,000 or higher, depending upon the opportunity in question and this amount provides for everything required to start business. The Disclosure Document gives you all the details in a comprehensive manner.
Answer: It is the Fee you pay to be granted the intellectual property rights and privileges that go with operating a Fitstyler franchise.
Answer: Firstly, you pay a weekly fee as an ongoing royalty payable for the use of the Fitstyler name and system, and with that comes a great deal of business advice and support. You will also contribute to advertising and that too is detailed in the Disclosure Document.
Your territory is exclusively yours, once sold it will not be available to anyone else. Currently levels of population growth and the government’s commitment to increasing urban density is expected to lead to a growing population of potential Fitmates.
Answer: Yes. The business is yours to build up and sell if you wish. However, With obesity and Type 2 diabetes reaching epidemic levels, the fitness industry will continue to enjoy growth and we believe our franchisees can ride this wave of expansion too.
Answer: It runs for five years. At the end of that time you will be able to renew for a further five years. There is a small Renewal Fee to cover legal costs. As our success is measured by your success, it is in our interest to ensure you stay with us for as long as you desire.
Answer: Telephone Andrew Talati at Fitstyler and he will ask you to come and see a session in operation to see if our fantastic business appeals to you and see if you can imagine yourself having fun and running a franchise all at the same time!
We will then ask you to complete our Confidentiality Agreement and Application Form. After the Application is in our hands we will contact you and begin the process of taking you through a careful and detailed review of our existing business before you make any final decision.
This franchise system endorses and continues to apply the standards required by the Franchising Code of Conduct and is a member of the Franchise Council of Australia.
Employees, Michael and Joel were so impressed with the Fitstyler model that they purchased their own Fitstyler business due to in part its focus on innovation working with such tools such as the I-Pad which enables impressive flexibility. These incorporated tools have enabled trainers to practice what they preach in maintaining a 'work/life balance.'
“I worked with different companies as a personal trainer, gym instructor and finally a group trainer. After looking to gain more experience in group training, I found Fitstyler provided that edge required to really stand out from the crowd. Everything is really well organised and trainers are really well guided and supported from marketing strategies to developing effective lesson plans. Michael
