Power Train Launches Franchising Initiative; Introducing Elite Athlete Training for Everyday Americans

Sports Performance-Focused Fitness Concept Announces Strategic U.S. Growth; Brand Plans to Add 600 New Franchise Locations in the Next 10 Years

October 16, 2014 // Franchising.com // MANHEIM, Pa. – Power Train, the performance-driven fitness concept that has built a reputation for training everyday people like professional athletes, today announced a strategic franchise growth initiative that aims to add 600 new franchise locations in markets across the country in the next 10 years. The brand is targeting investors with a passion for helping others meet and exceed their fitness and sports performance goals. 

“From day one, we have set-out to build a program that would deliver real results – that could provide a solution for professional athletes, as well as those who are wandering around a gym looking for answers. Our focus has never changed,” said Steve Saunders, the founder and president of Central Pennsylvania-based Power Train. “Now, we have the opportunity to share our proven workout system with people everywhere. This is the moment that we have been striving towards.” 

Currently, Power Train has 15 existing locations based throughout the country, holding total or partial ownership in 11 of the units. Power Train operators are based in Upstate New York, Central Pennsylvania and Hawaii.

The momentum Power Train has achieved in the last 12 months is fueling the brand’s growth strategy. New corporate-owned locations are set to open in West Chester and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania within the next two to three months. Looking ahead, Power Train is targeting key U.S. markets throughout Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Florida, Texas and North Carolina to add additional franchise locations.

Power Train facilities are self-contained, dedicated training centers ranging from 3,000 to 9,000 square feet, with an average size of 2,400 square feet. The centers are designed for hands-on, guided training sessions.

Power Train has achieved a reputation for training many of the nation’s top athletes including NFL, NHL, NBA and MLB stars. The company offers individualized small group training, specializing in delivering customized performance enhancement programs that are tailored to meet the needs and goals of each individual member. For the past 15 years, trainers have been constantly evolving this scientific approach to sports performance-driven fitness. Today, the Power Train team is bringing the approach to consumers looking for real, measurable and sustainable results.

“When athletes’ careers, livelihoods and multimillion dollar contracts depend on their physical performance, there is no faking it,” added Saunders. “We bring individualized training, immediate results and sustained, measurable improvements to those who are serious about achieving their fitness and sports performance goals.”

Founded in 2001, Power Train is the brainchild of renowned fitness expert Steve Saunders. Saunders developed the concept while conducting off-site training sessions with professional athletes based throughout the Northeast. As his one-on-one workout sessions grew in popularity, he refined the concept to provide professional-level personal training at a lower price point. By establishing lower trainer-to-member ratios, Steve has been able to maintain the brand’s signature, customizable training approach while making the workout system more accessible.

Complete with training, site selection, marketing and ongoing support, the business model has been cultivated to attract individuals or teams with an ambition to succeed, strong values and solid community and business connections. The Power Train franchise investment is under $200,000.
