AFS › Everything exercise professionals need to operate successful fitness businesses.
Why Join AFS?
Good question! If you're an exercise professional and an entrepreneur, the business of fitness is how you make your living and support your family. Like you, industry leaders, advocates, educators, equipment and product vendors, suppliers and manufacturers in the fitness industry understand how hard it can be to run a successful business. AFS was founded on the idea of community. We provide exercise professionals, personal trainers and fitness instructors business-specific products, services, and benefits that will enable you to more effectively manage and grow your business. As a result of the strength in cooperation from our alliance partners, we are able to help our industry prosper and create a stronger, more unified studio community.
AFS: "the only membership community dedicated to the business of fitness studios."
You're a great trainer or instructor, and everybody knows it. Your clients love you! Or maybe you own a studio and you're your own boss and you're teaching your own way. If you don't own a studio, you certainly have dreamt of it. But the skill set that made you a great trainer isn't necessarily the same skill set that will make you a great business owner. Which is often a big problem.
Introducing AFS—AFS is the answer to this problem. No matter the size of the studio, our mission is to help great fitness professionals become even greater business owners. We save you money, provide expert advice and connect you with other leaders in the industry. The power of our community makes you a desirable business partner to vendors and suppliers. Working together creates a stronger market that often means substantial money saving opportunities for you. And while saving money is great, what's even better is learning how the best in the business run their studios. There's nothing like learning from your peers and AFS is the connection.
