    “Our family has always been involved in the health, fitness, and sports world and has been exposed to every type of fitness concept available. The same sibling rivalry and competitive mindset that produced 4 brothers playing in the NFL, 1 playing in the MLB, and a 4X Super Bowl Champion also resulted in a family with the best understanding of fitness businesses. When we got to know the NexGen Fitness concept, mission, franchisee support, and proprietary processes that make it unique, opening a studio in our hometown was an easy decision for our family. NexGen’s unique approach to fitness in private training suites and completely custom, individualized programs is something that we not only wanted to bring home but also knew would be a good workout for our individual needs. We are excited to join with NexGen to change lives in our Buffalo, NY studio.”

    “Health and fitness have always been an important facet of my life. The film industry is certainly one where fitness is always at the forefront, and depending on the role I am playing I need to fine tune my training to match. Now as an entrepreneur and new mother, it is even more apparent that maintaining a healthy lifestyle and prioritizing my fitness impacts each and every day. NexGen Fitness spoke to me because of the privacy and exclusive feel that I can get when working with the trainers in a one-on-one setting, focused on my goals and maximizing my time. It was for that reason why I, along with my husband and business partner, decided to bring NexGen to LA.”

    “When I was first introduced to NexGen Fitness the energy was infectious and I went in to try a workout. I have experienced just about every kind of workout imaginable due to my professional basketball career, and I absolutely loved the workouts NexGen trainers took me through using the NexGen Fitness methods. I not only aligned with the workout, but I also aligned with NexGen’s focus to serve others. I love the individualized approach to training, where plans are developed to help each client reach their goals. Everyone at NexGen goes above and beyond to ensure not only each client is successful, but that each studio owner is successful as well! It is a true honor to be a part of the NexGen family, where countless lives are being impacted for the better!”

    “I came to NexGen Fitness because I saw the potential in the NexGen business model. The switch from a big box gym to NexGen really was a no brainer for me. NexGen exudes all the values that are important to me, while also training clients in the most effective way. I joined NexGen Fitness as a trainer, eventually moving to a manager position overseeing multiple locations. In 2018 I made the decision to become a Franchisee. A year later I bought my second location. It has been incredibly rewarding and I’m proud to be an active part of NexGen’s exciting future.”

    “I joined NexGen Fitness as a Personal Trainer in October of 2014, and immediately knew I found something special. I had worked in other fitness concepts before, but never somewhere that allowed for success of both clients and staff like NexGen did. Over the years I grew to really love NexGen’s mission and how they did business. I had a newfound passion for fitness and helping people, that motivated me to work my way up from trainer, to managing a studio, and now owning a franchise location in McKinney, TX. I get to impact lives every day and embrace my passion and entrepreneurial side as well.”
