Fitness Enhancement Personal Training, a Gold Coast business started on just $400 15 years ago by a then 19-year-old Scott Hunt, has now franchised.
Unlike a traditional Gym, Fitness Enhancement has created a niche of “100% private” Personal Training Studios and also Mobile Personal Trainers Gold Coast and Brisbane wide to give clients “Personal Training that’s personal, not ‘impersonal’ like at a Gym where you’re the centre of attention”.
CEO and founder Scott Hunt explained “Gyms are great value for fit people who love exercise, however they don’t cater to the millions of Australian’s who feel too embarrassed to go to a Gym due to their size, age, injuries, confidence or a variety of other factors. With us clients can achieve their goals in the privacy of their own home or one of our 100% private Studios and avoid the dreaded Gym scene.”
“Gyms are getting cheaper and cheaper and providing less and less support and personal attention. For many people, a low price and 24/7 access doesn’t help them a achieve their goals, having a caring and down to earth Personal Trainer who can push them and motivate them in an environment they feel comfortable in is what helps them achieve their goals.”
The GFC combined with the influx of hundreds of low cost 24/7 Gyms that undercut the prices (and customer service and personal attention) of independent fitness centres, has seen many small family owned fitness businesses shut down in recent years.
Despite the competition, and being a 19-year-old Uni student when he opened the business on $400, Mr Hunt has been able to build Fitness Enhancement to Queensland’s largest independent Personal Training company over the last 15 years.
“We’ve helped so many people get amazing results that wouldn’t have ever gone to a Gym, and we are excited to now be franchising Australia-wide and look forward to making an impact on Australia’s obesity epidemic”.
In November last year, Hunt was also announced as a finalist in the Gold Coast ‘Young Entrepreneur of the Year’ awards, which was an accolade in addition to Fitness Australia giving Fitness Enhancement its ‘Gold Award’, in recognition of it being one of Australia’s leading fitness businesses.
