“The name ‘Alloy’ was created under the notion of strength and motion meeting; those two things coming together to create something bigger, stronger, and longer-lasting,” says founder Rick Mayo. “Over the past few years, I kept asking myself how our team and brand could do more to meet our mission; the answer became clear, we needed to create a total solution.” It was in 2018, Rick and the team at Alloy decided that moving into a franchise model was the answer they sought, “We know a formula that works, and that is a key ingredient to a successful franchise.”
“Franchising enables us to support our business partners fully from build-out design, through equipment, fitness operations, marketing, specifications and more,” says Suzanne Robb CEO of Alloy PT Franchise, “The Alloy Franchise Model encompasses all that we have learned about running a successful business, from Personal Training, Marketing, Staff Management, and everything in between.”
Until now gym operators picked and chose the parts of the Alloy systems they needed to fill in gaps in their personal training programs. “Says Tony Chemer VP of Franchise Development, Now we will be starting from scratch we are able to provide total support of our systems already proven in thousands of gyms worldwide.”
The Alloy Personal Training Franchise is ready to go to market with franchise recruitment and sales process on September 1, 2019, and will focus largely in the southeastern United States for the first year with a strong focus on Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
