Join the Orange Shoe Crew
If you are ready to share your passion for healthy living with others, Orange Shoe Personal Fitness will give you the tools to create your own success. Becoming a franchise partner takes time, money, and devotion, but our owners find it all worthwhile because they are dedicated to helping clients do everything better.
Orange Shoe Personal Fitness is a niche franchise opportunity in a $20 Billion Market.
The Orange Shoe Personal Fitness mission is to help people do everything better while building long-term relationships and having fun. We are looking for individuals who have similar aspirations in their next big step or business venture to join our team.
The personal fitness industry is rapidly growing in popularity across the country, and we position our brand by creating a clear, competitive difference in a market filled with “one size fits all” health clubs. As a result, Orange Shoe franchise owners are reaping the rewards.
The Orange Shoe Difference.
We do personal fitness better than anyone in the industry.
As life changes for each of our clients, we adjust their program to fit their needs accordingly. This makes Orange Shoe unlike any other personal fitness franchise in the country.
We have a proven model of success.
Our systems are easy to understand and operate, and we merge curriculum with career to advance your life. We bring systems in-house to advance staff and keep our product delivery consistent.
We believe you should never go through big life changes alone.
That is why we offer you continued franchise support beyond your studio opening. Unlike franchises that offer resources only up to opening day, Orange Shoe is here for you as a resource throughout your franchise ownership.
Orange Shoe has an established and respected brand equity.
There is less risk in an Orange Shoe franchise ownership compared to independent business ownership. Ninety-eight percent of franchisees are still in business 10 years after opening day while only two-thirds of small business make it past the first two years of ownership.
At your studio, clients won’t feel that static, uninspired feeling they know so well at health clubs—and neither will you. And because our approach is designed to address the specific health needs of our clients, we can charge a premium price for our expert training services.
