Introduction from company website...
With a Fit After 50™ Group Exercise Studio, you will be in a position to benefit by serving the ever growing group of baby boomers, who now are in their 40s, 50s and 60s
. Average life expectancy for both men and women also has been increasing. In addition, middle aged folks are becoming more "fitness aware" and discovering the importance of staying fit in order to be able to enjoy many healthy years in retirement.
Fit After 50™ is more than a business, it’s a great lifestyle. You create, maintain and work in a healthy and social environment that provides a much needed fitness service to friends and neighbors
. It’s a new and exciting career that integrates meaningful work with living well.
It’s a healthy, happy, and fulfilled way of life, and the good feeling only gets better with the rewards of watching your members’ health and overall well-being improve. Owning your own business, especially one that fits your life so well while helping others, is the American Dream.
The founding of Fit After 50™ Group Exercise Studios was no fluke. We wanted to create something unique and special for members and owners alike. The result was a social, supportive, and pleasant environment for members to get thirty minutes of effective and enjoyable exercise.
Our business philosophy is win-win. We intend for our Fit After 50™ members and owners to be completely thrilled and satisfied. Our mission is to provide a supportive and member focused fitness facility for mature adults
. We strongly believe that thirty minutes of regular and moderate exercise has important physical, mental, and emotional benefits and will help smooth over many of the bumps in aging. If you share our beliefs and values, we welcome you to our family.
