In a recent survey, 50% of our customers indicated that the cost of education is their biggest challenge in the fitness industry. Largely comprised of part-time group instructors, our customers find it hard to balance how much (or little) we make with how much we spend to remain current in our certifications and up-to-date with industry trends.
At FiTOUR® our PRIMARY GOAL is to keep the cost of fitness education reasonable and the quality of the material excellent so that our customers can stay in the business. We are happy to share a program that will help in this effort.
