Testimonials

We needed someone who would not only give us the specific information we needed, but would see that we asked the questions we did not know to ask. Jim gave us this and more. We have been in our facility for four months after a year of preparation and pre-sales. As I think back, Jim was instrumental in all the main systems and decisions we made. What he did for us is give us perspective that we did not have the time to develop on our own. He has the experience to determine likely outcomes of specific advertisements, how much one should budget for employee expenses, how to make the biggest impact with changes to the club, how to work pricing strategies, how to motivate and inspire sales staff. These are just a few major areas in which he gave us direction. I feel strongly that Jim would be an asset to any club undergoing growth, change or in need of repair.

5 years ago I came to a cross road in my 20 year health club career. Jim Thomas was instrumental in my decision to continue with health and wellness and become a gym consultant. His guidance and resources have helped me to develop a successful health club consulting business.

I have been at 3 different fitness clubs that has consulted with Jim Thomas of Fitness Management & Consulting. Each club was quite different from each other, yet Jim's skill-set was broad enough to provide excellent service and training to each facility.

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.
