Discover the winning formula behind Fit Body Boot Camp’s success: science-backed workouts, a supportive community and a proven system for franchise owners

Ten years ago, Barrett Henson stood in front of his first Fit Body Boot Camp group training session, scanning the room. One client, struggling with a basic bodyweight squat, caught his eye.

“I could tell she didn’t know the proper technique and I was worried she’d hurt herself,” Henson said. “I knew in that moment that I was in the right place — a place where I get to teach the fundamentals and coach people correctly.”

At that moment, he realized the profound impact he could have on people’s lives. Fast forward to today, Henson, who is Fit Body Boot Camp’s Executive Director of Coaching and a franchisee in Berkley, Michigan, is committed to creating a supportive and effective fitness environment that has already helped transform countless lives and cemented Fit Body Boot Camp as a leader.

“The heaviest weight a client will ever lift is the front door of the gym,” Henson says, emphasizing the emotional strength it takes for someone to ask for help. That, combined with the physical strength the programming offers, sets up franchise locations to be satellites of change.

The Demand for Strength Training

In response to the rising interest in strength training, Fit Body Boot Camp has meticulously crafted its programming to meet demand. The 4-week mesocycle is a cornerstone of their approach, Henson says, blending strength workouts, classic resistance training and metabolic conditioning. This structure ensures that clients achieve balanced fitness, hitting all major muscle groups within a 30-minute session, three times a week.

Henson emphasizes that programming is not about achieving maximum hypertrophy or performance training; it’s focused on fat loss. This targeted approach allows clients to see significant results in a manageable timeframe, fitting seamlessly into their busy lives.

“We’re asking for three times a week, 30 minutes per session. If you can’t commit to that, it’s tough to help you,” Henson states, highlighting the accessibility and efficiency of their “time collapsed” program.

To illustrate the format’s effectiveness, Henson shares how clients consistently achieve their fitness goals by following the structured approach. “We’ve seen clients transform their bodies and lives with our system. The 4-week mesocycle ensures that clients get a comprehensive workout, hitting all major muscle groups and combining different types of exercises for maximum effect.”

Supporting Franchisees With Comprehensive Training

Fit Body Boot Camp’s success isn’t just about their innovative workouts; it’s also about the extensive support they provide franchisees. This support begins with a detailed course for new coaches, covering everything from the philosophy behind the workouts to the specifics of exercise science and client interaction. This is crucial for ensuring that coaches understand and can effectively deliver the program’s objectives, Henson says.

Monthly virtual Zoom calls provide ongoing education and a platform for coaches to ask questions and share experiences. These sessions reinforce key concepts and help coaches adapt workouts to their specific studio needs. Henson explains: “We want to make sure our coaches understand the ‘why’ behind the workouts, not just the ‘how.’ This understanding is crucial for delivering consistent, effective training to clients.”

Fit Body also offers an 18-month curriculum for new coaches, designed to develop well-rounded professionals.

“Trainers count reps; coaches bring about change,” Henson asserts. This curriculum not only covers exercise science but also focuses on soft skills, such as client interaction and motivation. “Our goal is to develop coaches who can connect deeply with clients and inspire them to achieve their goals.”

Creating a Culture of Community & Belonging

One of the standout features of Fit Body Boot Camp is its emphasis on community and belonging. Walking into a fitness facility for the first time can be an incredibly daunting experience, and the organization aims to make this step as welcoming as possible.

“Our culture is all about family,” Henson says. “We attract people who are looking to improve themselves, and we support them every step of the way.”

“During my decade of doing this, I’ve had people tell me, ‘Hey, I’m sorry, I missed the first session. I sat in your parking lot and cried for 30 minutes because I couldn’t muster up the emotional strength to walk in,” and that breaks your heart. You want to do everything you can to help them feel safe and welcome.”

This supportive environment is not just for clients, but extends to franchisees and coaches, creating a strong, interconnected community.

Real-World Success and Impact

Henson’s own journey with Fit Body Boot Camp exemplifies the impact of this community-focused approach. He has been part of one of the brand’s most successful camps, built through hard work and dedication. His location serves as a type of “programming lab,” and those experiences have been optimized to help new franchisees avoid the same struggles and achieve success more quickly.

For potential franchisees, Fit Body Boot Camp offers a compelling proposition. The combination of efficient, results-driven programming, extensive support and a strong community culture sets it apart from other fitness franchises. The structured yet flexible approach allows franchisees to focus on execution and client interaction, knowing that they have a robust system backing them up.

“I love getting into the weeds of this stuff because I know if I’m willing to do it, most people are not, and that’s okay,” Henson says. “Let me handle the details so you can focus on leading your clients and growing your business.”

Fit Body also provides extensive ongoing support, including weekly coaching calls for franchise owners and a wealth of resources to help them succeed.

“We’ve systematized everything to make it as easy as possible for franchisees to hit the ground running,” Henson explains. “From marketing materials to operational guides, we provide all the tools you need to build a successful business.”

With its proven system and focus on client results, Fit Body Boot Camp offers a distinctive approach. For fitness professionals and entrepreneurs, Fit Body Boot Camp provides the necessary tools and backing to build a successful and impactful business.

As Henson notes, “We are a self-improvement program that just so happens to deliver kick-butt workouts.” This philosophy underscores the brand’s mission and its ongoing efforts to create positive change.
