Brand New National Franchise Opportunity: FITtec – The Evolution of Fitness

Brand New Nationwide Franchise Opportunity!


FITtec™, with its electro muscular stimulation (EMS) technology, is the evolution of  fitness!


Remember the good old days when working out meant spending a lot of time at a huge gym rotating between several different (and EXPENSIVE) pieces of equipment?  Technology is changing all of that and FITtec is bringing Xbody EMS training to the U.S. as a cutting-edge franchise opportunity!

The electro muscular stimulation technology behind FITtec is currently used in dozens of countries around the world.  FITtec is a low-impact, toning and muscle-building + cardio workout rolled into one.  Suiting up and working out for twenty minutes, twice a week is all it takes.


What makes FITtec a unique franchise opportunity?

  • Smaller space requirements (less than 1,600 sf) means lower monthly rent and higher ROI
  • Lower initial investment:  EMS-technology devices replace numerous, high-cost pieces of equipment
  • Minimal staffing requirements, ideally suited for Owner/Operators
  • Early-adopter franchise fee of $25,000 for the first 5 units
  • Royalty fee of 6%
  • Hands-on help, support, training and communication throughout the life of your franchise (including site selection and build-out assistance, operations training, organizational assistance, and a turnkey marketing program)
  • Preferred franchise fees for Veterans


As a proven device, EMS technology is more than just fitness.  In addition to fitness enthusiasts, FITtec clients also include people who are recovering from accidents or injuries as well as those who live with chronic conditions like arthritis.


If you are interested in learning more about this profitable, cutting-edge fitness franchise opportunity, we would love to hear from you!

The National Franchise Institute Announces the Hand-Up Scholarship Program

Opening a new franchise location is no small undertaking.  Even with a good amount of capital and assistance from the franchisor, there is still a lot to know to simply get the doors open.  The National Franchise Institute, which educates franchise professionals about the intricacies of opening new locations, has created the Hand-Up Scholarship Program to help franchise professionals do just that.


Entrepreneurs who become part of the franchise industry often bring capital and experience from previous careers to the franchise table.  They are already hard-working, successful professionals with a desire to learn and earn more.


“Franchising is exciting,” says Carolyn Miller, founder of the National Franchise Institute.  “Even with all of the documented processes and procedures that make the franchise industry so successful, many new franchisees need additional help when it comes to knowing all there is to know about building new locations.”


“There is a huge difference between a hand up and a hand out,” explains Miller.  “The hard work that franchise professionals invest in their companies proves that they don’t need a hand out – but sometimes, they do need a hand up.”


The Hand-Up Scholarship Program is a pay-it-forward opportunity that helps to strengthen the franchise industry.  By pairing already-successful franchise professionals with newcomers to the industry, there is a domino effect of success that extends for years.


“Few successful franchise professionals became successful without help from a number of different sources,” says Miller.  “It’s exciting to spend time with franchisors, franchisees, and even suppliers and service providers who have ‘made it’ in the franchise world.  Without exception, each one of them can easily reflect back to their own humble beginnings.  They know the struggles they faced and they remember the people and the companies who were there to help them along the way.  It becomes a significant milestone in each one’s franchise career when they are able to be ‘that’ person for someone else.”


“The idea for the Hand-Up Scholarship Program is actually a creative twist on sponsorship offers,” explains Miller.  “The National Franchise Institute has been approached by a number of companies that want to sponsor our programs. While that is an honor, sponsorship funds represent only a two-dimensional benefit:  to the Institute and to the sponsor which misses an opportunity to help someone who needs it most:  a new franchisee, perhaps even a Veteran who is joining the franchise family.”


As Miller further explains, “By accepting scholarships in lieu of sponsorship dollars, the Hand-Up Scholarship Program becomes a three dimensional benefit:  for the Institute, the sponsor, and now for the person whose franchise career will be forever changed by receiving a much-needed hand up in the form of free tuition to attend one of our programs.”


Scholarships can be presented to the Institute on behalf of a specific individual or they can be earmarked for someone that the sponsor doesn’t know yet.  “People tend to associate with other people who are more like themselves,” notes Miller.  “If they are already experienced, successful professionals themselves, chances are high that their closest business associates have already achieved success in their own rite.  They want to help ‘someone’ yet they don’t really know the right ‘someone’.  It is exciting for the National Franchise Institute to be able to bring the two together.  The Hand-Up Scholarship Program, hands down, is one of the most rewarding gifts to give and is one of the most valuable gifts to receive.”
