P90X Certified Gaining Traction in Health Clubs

 

Since our last post on P90X Certified on Friday July 13, where we referenced the joint press release with Beachbody’s P90X Certified program for health clubs that is being endorsed by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM),there has been a TON of interest and activity within the health club industry.
ClubIndustry.com recently ran a story on P90X Certified coming to health clubs around the country. http://clubindustry.com/inside_manufacturers/p90x-licensing-certifications-now-available-to-fitness-facilities-20120812/

The next wave of excitement has come from Vice Presidential candidate Paul D. Ryan who happens to be a workout fanatic and his workout of choice is P90X and Insanity. This has been all over the media. The link below has the New York Times article about Beachbody’s P90X as the workout of choice for Ryan: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/16/fashion/paul-ryan-gives-p90x-workout-a-boost.html
The media boost has certainly helped my business as owner of FitnessJobs.com and an Independent Team Beachbody Coach. As I mentioned in my last post, I have created a turn-key program designed specifically for health clubs to assist them with the introduction, implementation, sales, marketing and training of club staff for the P90X Certified Club Program.
 
Gold’s Gyms-Indianapolis, American Club Systems and Bodyworks Family Fitness Centers are the first club organization we are bringing online. We have over a dozen other clubs in the final stage of discussions that should be rolling out the P90X Certified/Beachbody program this fall.
 
Anyone interested in getting on board, please contact me directly at 602-334-7898 to arrange a phone appointment so I can tell you how your health club or fitness business can benefit from the P90X Certified program and the Beachbody relationship.
Anyone interested in attending a live presentaion about my turn-key program for health clubs can come to my presentaion at the MINDBODY/FitPro Conference at the Marina del Rey Marriott on Sunday September 9. Call me at 602-334-7898 for more details.
