The Fit Body Boot Camp, found online at FBBCFranchise.com, is a new franchise business opportunity for people who are interested in running their own business while helping their community embrace a healthy and fit lifestyle.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, the goal of the Fit Body Boot Camp is to engage 20% of the world’s population to a healthy and fit lifestyle by the year 2020, and one of the ways they are going to meet this goal is by providing people with the ability to franchise one of their fitness centers.
Their website says that they mentor all their franchise owners on how to cultivate and develop long lasting relationships with their customers, by providing them not only with training, but high quality services.
In addition, their company develops high quality, effective boot camp routines that give your clients their best chance at successfully meeting their fitness and wellness goals, as well as access to a fully developed marketing team that will make it easy for you to get new clients in the door.
If you are interested in owning and operating your own Fit Body Boot Camp franchise, all you have to do is submit your contact information to their website, and they will have a representative call you and walk you through the details.
Their website says that they are “the anti-franchise,” in that with any normal franchise business arrangement, the more successful your business becomes, the larger the monthly royalties you will owe to your parent organization.
But Fit Body Boot Camp says they don’t believe in “punishing” their franchise owners for their success, and instead they provide all flat fees to their owners. Their Franchise Fee is listed as $9,997, and their monthly royalty fee is $597 per month, regardless of how large and successful your franchise becomes.
When entering into a complicated business contract such as franchising a business from a national chain, there is no real “Refund Policy.” Instead, you’ll want to speak with the company representative in clear and specific terms regarding cancellation policies, the time periods in which you have to back away from the deal if you choose, and what initial funds may be returned to you if you must back out of the deal.

The reviews on this business opportunity are certainly mixed. While there are some vocal critics of this opportunity online, it is difficult to evaluate their level of bias since most negative reviews were associated with suggesting an alternative fitness franchise brand.
That being said, there were some critiques offered by these reviewers that deserve to be considered. First is that even though the initial Franchise Fee is listed at $9,997, the reality is that to successfully open one of these fitness franchises owners must expect to invest between $30,000 and $100,000 initially, depending on where you live, real estate costs, and more.
In addition, though the website promotes their flat monthly fee as being well liked by successful and established franchise owners, it has been pointed out that this fee may be difficult for brand new, struggling franchises to pay each month while they are attempting to build their client base.
Competitors and Alternatives?
Certainly there are many other franchise opportunities available in the United States in many different fields and industries, as well as many different business opportunities within the health and wellness industry that do not necessarily require the commitment of owning a franchise. It is up to every individual to determine what their needs and wants are, and then to look and see what business opportunities may fit their criteria.
