Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Elite Edge Transformation Centers different from other group fitness centers?
Elite Edge Transformation Center is the only group fitness franchise where becoming an owner comes with family-style support and coaching from our corporate team. Our fitness model is focused and unique, combining barbell strength training with High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). We have been in business for 10 years and have established a proven business model with four corporate gyms that all more than double the industry average for gross monthly income. Our clients trust us to deliver better results than the competition, which is why our average client stays for over two years and provides a lifetime value of over $4000. Most importantly, you will always have personalized coaching and support available to help you implement marketing systems, operational execution and maximize profitability.
