Why Should You Consider Fitness Machine Technicians?

At Fitness Machine Technicians, we’ve built our franchise business model to set our franchisees up for success. Our repair and maintenance franchise opportunity is a great way to break into a growing industry with the support and knowledge of an experienced franchisor. 

Why should you consider Fitness Machine Technicians? There are lots of reasons, but some of the top advantages include:

We’re not aligned with any one manufacturer.
Our franchisees are corporately trained to service machinesn from an array of manufacturers and aren’t pressured only to provide service for one brand. We don’t play favorites.
The health club environment is changing.
Newer health clubs can maintain over 150 pieces of cardio equipment alone which can often make facility managers feel boxed in by local service providers who have existing relationships with certain manufacturers. We’re able to service a wide range of fitness brands without ulterior motives.
We’re a needs-based business.
While Fitness Machine Technicians does not sell equipment, our equipment repair and preventive maintenance services can help extend the life of our customers’ equipment, help reduce liability, and help improve user safety.
We’re technology-resistant.
If you’re wondering how mechanically inclined you need to be to become a Fitness Machine Technicians franchisee, the short answer is “not very.” We look for franchisees with the technical inclination to follow directions and troubleshoot, but realistically you only need basic toolbox proficiency. With our comprehensive training program and manufacturer certifications, you’ll gain all the knowledge you need to run your business.
We’re recession-resistant.
With a low barrier to entry and limited expenses, we’ll help you break into the $16.2B sports equipment market that’s forecast to increase and generate more than $20B by 2025. Whether working out at a fitness center, receiving physical therapy, or building a home gym, a growing number of customers need our services.
We offer two models to fit your involvement level.
You can choose to be a semi-absentee or full-on owner/operator. Either way, you can operate your service-based business from home.
We’re invested in our franchisees.
As a low-cost investment, we’ve taken all factors into consideration to help you see a strong return on your investment. We utilize pre-owned hybrid service vehicles to keep initial costs lower and reduce fuel expenses. Our scalable model means you can add more technicians as you grow and increase your gross revenue. Plus, we have multi-unit opportunities available with our National Account Program.
