Company and Founder
Jim Thomas is the well-known founder and president of Fitness Management USA, Inc., a management consulting and turnaround firm specializing in the fitness and health club industry.
With over 25 years of experience owning, operating and managing clubs of all sizes, Mr. Thomas lectures and delivers seminars and workshops across the country on the practical skills required to successfully build teamwork and market fitness programs and products.
Since forming Fitness Management, Mr. Thomas has been turning health clubs around at an amazing rate and garnering a reputation as a producer of change…a sharp-eyed troubleshooter, a brilliant sales trainer, and a motivator. Fitness Management provides programs that show measurable results and Jim’s team is proud of their ability to glean profit from every square foot of a client’s investment.
A dynamic, articulate motivator, Mr. Thomas exudes confidence without artifice and accomplishes wonders without the bruised feelings that can so often accompany change. “We pride ourselves in reaching people and motivating change in a way that encourages self-esteem on the part of the players.”
Whether you operate a health club, fitness center, gym or other type club, Jim Thomas and Fitness Management have a program to fit your need, expand your market base, and keep your members and staff productive and enthusiastic.
After Jim completes a Needs Analysis of the club, he strategically maps out a plan and then provides the means to execute a plan that can fit your needs.
A few things that makes FM & C an outstanding firm is not only their proven, time-tested methods of Jim's sales training and tracking accountabilities, but the manner in which he delivers the presentations. Jim is a true "people" person. He understands the daily struggles of the mom-n-pop facilities and he can handle all the red-tape that a larger, corporate facility is faced with.
Some consultants do a good job with the rah-rah, cheerleading seminars, but Jim is excellent also when the crowds are gone and you're back to the grind of the daily operational challenges. I have consulted with Jim Thomas for over 10 years and he is the real deal. I highly recommend Fitness Management & Consulting whether you are a struggling club looking to turn things around, or a new club start-up. FM & C can assist you and at the end of the day, you will feel that they have earned every $$ you invest into them.
