Champions Youth Fitness


Champions Youth Fitness is a website & a federal trademark owned by Healthclubexperts.com, a Florida company. The initial concept was for Healthclubexperts.com to sell youth fitness equipment & nutrition programs to health club owners throughout the US. As a result, Healthclubexperts.com signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Panatta Sports, an Italian company, to market their Kids Fitness System. Other distribution agreements have been signed with Promaxima Manufacturing, Motion Fitness and iMD to distribute a wide variety of youth fitness equipment and programs.

The website of Champions Youth Fitness appears at the top of the list of organic searches for youth fitness equipment. Within the last two (2) years, we have received frequent inquiries for franchise support.

As a result of these franchise requests, we have incorporated Champions Youth Fitness as a new Florida corporation and we are now planning to launch two (2) franchise models. The first (1st) model, a "hosted" model to convert the 3,000 existing nurseries within health clubs to a Champions Youth Fitness Center for children up to the age of 6 years old. This model requires no additional capital so we will begin our sales campaign in the second (2nd) quarter of 2013.

Our second (2nd) model is a "standalone model." which is a 4,800SF after school care fitness center model for ages 6-12. We intend to stage the process of raising the capital required to build the initial model in Broward County in early 2014. Once we raise the capital, build the flagship and prove the model, we plan to launch the franchise for the Champions Youth Fitness Centers stand alone model. We have completed the financial projections and the floor plan & we are now in the process of completing a 3D model of this exciting initiative.
