Fitness Together helps customers reach goals


Craig Collier strives daily to make other people work and sweat for their goals.

As owner of Fitness Together, 11521 Kingston Pike, customers come to Collier to help them reach their goals. Unlike standard fitness centers, Fitness Together offers one-on-one time with a trainer in a unique workoutenvironment.


“We do personalized training in a private environment,” Collier said. “Customers are greeted from the time they open the door to the time they leave.”

Collier said Fitness Together is a different type of workout environment in that customers determine their schedule; they work out in relative privacy and are urged to meet their goals through a personal trainer who leads them in a workout

regimen.

The smell of scented candles and a serene atmosphere greet customers as they enter the facility. Four cardio machines rest in the front of the building, giving participants a view of Kingston Pike if they choose not to avail themselves of a variety of music choices or to watch television mounted on the equipment. Use of the machines, however, takes place toward the end of the workout.

A trainer leads them through a series of warm-up and stretching exercises while clients can listen to any variety of music of their choosing. Then they move into a private suite for strength training. The trainer leads the customer through a series of curls and crunches and other exercises, then on to the cardio machines for the last 15 to 20 minutes of their workout routine.

“The routine depends on the goal the clients wants to achieve,” Collier said. “Most of our clients come in three days a week on average.”

Each time a client arrives at their scheduled time, a personal trainer is waiting.

“We have three to four personal trainers on staff, so you might have a different trainer at different times,” he said. “People seem to like the variety. The main attractions are the accountability factor and the privacy. You don’t have to share machines and facilities.”

Collier said people purchase their sessions in bundles. Depending on the bundle, the price can cost between $50 and $65 per session.

Collier, an Alabama native, said he was involved in sales and marketing for a construction manufacturing company prior to becoming a Fitness Together franchisee.

“I decided to find a business franchise to own,” he said. “I bought two, one here in Farragut and one in Bearden. This is a great business to be in for me and my family. It’s been exciting for my kids to come here — they just jump on the equipment and start

exercising.”

The company offers a free introductory session.
