Dacqrin has a 20+ year decorated career in the US Military, serving in several leadership positions along the West Coast. He and his girlfriend are both strongly into fitness personally, and had been researching different types of workouts since she has extensive background in personal training and coaching. As they began discussing a possibly business partnership, the idea of a fitness franchise jumped to the top.
He reached out to Franchise FastLane directly to start to investigate The Exercise Coach along with other fitness franchises. As he saw the low investment, proprietary equipment and the deep history of proven and profitable locations, he narrowed his search to only this one opportunity. After visiting a local studio and talking to the franchisee, Dacqrin and his girlfriend were blown away and reach out inquiring of what it would take to get a territory in the San Diego area.
After spending weeks on due diligence, running the numbers, talking to owners and working on his funding strategy, they took a short trip to Houston, Texas for a Confirmation Day. There, they met the leadership team, saw a studio and was able to connect with managers and coaches, and confirmed that this was the right fit for their business investment. They were awarded a single territory in the San Diego, California area.
The Nation’s Largest Personal Training Franchise just got bigger and stronger! Over 250 US territories awarded and has 170+ studios open and operating. The Exercise Coach has been named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 List 2 years in a row, also securing placements in Top Emerging, Fastest Growing and Fitness categories. Lot of new studios opening every quarter and we are hearing VERY STRONG VALIDATION from new franchisees!
