First Things First – What is Alloy Personal Training?
The Alloy Personal Training mission is to provide a straightforward, common-sense brand in an increasingly confusing and niche training and fitness industry.
Specifically, we provide our franchisees and employees with an effective, proven, and tailored way to leverage the growth of what’s known as the “active aging” demographic – or people over 50.
Given that there are currently about 78 million Baby Boomers in America, one person turns 65 every ten seconds, and 35% of them exercise, this is a critically important demographic.
We provide an effective fitness platform and a focus on small-group personal training options that meet people where they are and help them meet their goals.
Benefits for Franchisees – For franchisors the benefits include a higher ROI per square foot, higher client retention rates, and even a effective pre-sale programs opening with a full clientele of 130 members.
Benefits for Clients – Clients benefit with small group personal training programs with 6 people that provide the personalization and motivation of one-on-one personal training session, but at a lower cost.
We use technology to inform our practices and drive actual results for our community, business owners, and clients.
What Makes Alloy Personal Training Unique?
Today, there are hundreds of fitness franchises available for purchase. Some from recognizable, big-name brands that have become household names, and some from niche businesses that cater to particular groups of people.
It can seem like everywhere you look, there’s another pitch to become a franchisee for a too-good-to-be-true company that promises work/life balance, high returns, and the freedom to build the life of your dreams.
That’s just the thing, though: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
At Alloy, our goal is to make all that pie-in-the-sky thinking more realistic and show people how they can get results with our program.
With that in mind, here are just a few of the things that set us apart from other fitness franchises out there:

2. We Provide Proven Solutions
We founded our first program in 1992, so you can rest assured we’re not riding on the coattails of some trend or trying to cash in on a growing industry.
Instead, our programs drive results because they’re established, and they know how to combine the latest science and technology with our decades of real-world experience in the industry. We also believe in keeping business simple not complicated.
Alloy has become a household name in the fitness industry, and our proven solutions and tailored business management approaches make it possible for you to develop your own highly successful, branded brick-and-mortar training operation.
3. Community Is Top Priority
If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. We believe that, and we’re convinced nobody achieves success alone.
We need one another, and we’re stronger when we work together.
We live that philosophy daily by creating a culture and community around our programs and providing a fitness operation that feels like home for everyone who walks in the door.
