Elizabethtown, KY (PRWEB) June 25, 2012 - Fitness Revolution, a fitness franchising organization, has just won the Silver Stevie – second place honors - in the category of Best New Company of the Year at the American Business Awards. The award ceremony, now in its 10th year of existence, was held on Monday, June 18th in New York City.
This year the ceremony was held at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Manhattan. Attending on behalf of Fitness Revolution was VP of Operations Timothy J. Ward, who remarked, “It has been an amazing first year for Fitness Revolution. It is a great honor that the business world is taking notice.”
Fitness Revolution, founded in December of 2010, began offering its first territories in January of 2011. By the end of the year, it had sold 104 different franchises and had been registered in over 40 different states . Now, the number of franchisees is well over 120.
In recognition of its outstanding first year growth, Fitness Revolution was nominated for the “Stevie” in the category of Best New Company of the Year. After a long deliberation process, the Elizabethtown, Kentucky based company placed second. Corkcicle walked away with the Gold Stevie, while Leverage a Lawyer, LLC took bronze.
Fitness Revolution has positioned itself away from the model of health clubs. Instead, it seeks to provide successful business systems to passionate fitness professionals. The goal is to create results-driven, sustainable businesses.
In its first year of operation, Fitness Revolution has provided a number of benefits to franchisees: preferred pricing from vendors, payment processing software, training equipment, and deals for nutrition and supplements.
If Fitness Revolution's first year is any indication, they are succeeding. “We knew immediately that we offered the tools to create profitable fitness franchises,” said co-founder Pat Rigsby. “But even we're a little surprised at how quickly word has gotten out about Fitness Revolution.”
Fitness Revolution's success comes as no shock to business insiders who appreciate the company's client-centered approach. In fact, the awards serve to validate the company's strategy of meeting individual needs within its successful business models.
“We had such an amazing 2011,” Rigsby continued. “But I think we have even bigger things planned for 2012.”
Pat Rigsby is the co-owner of Fitness Consulting Group, a leading business development consulting firm within the fitness industry.
Fitness Revolution is a member of the Fitness Consulting Group family of companies. Fitness Revolution franchises focus on providing clients with the best fitness coaching available today, using a training staff made up of nationally certified fitness professionals.
