Overview

Our unique gym franchise opportunities draws higher paying, more dedicated clients across the full spectrum of ages.

Here’s a typical D1 Training franchise scenario: a local high school team participates in strength conditioning. Their families come to watch and, impressed by the quality of the training, they become loyal D1 clients, as well. Through small-group classes built around the idea that each individual is an athlete, D1’s skilled trainers meet the clients where they are and craft routines to meet the specific needs.

It’s a level of training typically reserved for Division 1 athletes. That’s why D1 athletes are more committed to their fitness — and more willing to pay a higher membership fee than people who join a typical neighborhood workout franchise.

“As you look at fitness, the more specialized, boutique fitness offerings are what’s growing from an industry perspective,” says D’Wayne Tanner, Chief Development Officer for D1 Training. “Our offering is at once a boutique, but also has a broad appeal.”

Why Choose Us?

Fitness franchises are a crowded space, but d1 training is head-and-shoulders above the competition.

It seems like new fitness franchises are popping up in neighborhoods and shopping centers all over the place, and with good reason. The fitness industry in America is booming, with more than 34,000 fitness centers and 5 billion visits to the gym last year alone.

No other sports franchise provides the diversity of options, the wide market and the strong community integration that every D1 Training franchise delivers. When it comes to sports and athletic franchises, D1 Training represents the pinnacle of training and workouts for every athlete, regardless of where they are in their development.

Ideal Candidate

Our owners, trainers and coaches are all focused on making the best athletes possible.

The old adage “there is no ‘I’ in ‘TEAM’” is true, but teams are by their nature made up of groups of individuals, each of whom has a particular goal, desires, dreams and motivations. Each of these franchisees exemplify just how much a part of the D1 team our owners become — and how well our business incorporates the idea of teamwork. From a focus on training like an athlete, providing a path to recovery, or giving something back to the community, D1 Training franchise culture is unlike anything else in franchising.

D1 OFFERS A VISION THAT FITS WELL WITH A MISSION

It’s pretty apparent when you step into any D1 Training location that the people there are on a mission. They’re dedicated to the transformative power of athletic training. Otherwise, they wouldn’t put in the work to fulfill that mission.

History

Nashville native Will Bartholomew spent four years setting the pace for the offensive line of the University of Tennessee Volunteers. By 2001, it seemed a professional football career was all but certain, and as an un-drafted free agent, Will started practice with the Denver Broncos.

“I was getting asked by a lot of people how I had made it to Denver,” Will says. “I began to feel like there needed to be a place for athletes to go, to experience the intensity of training and the coaches, breathing life in you and encouraging you to get to that next level. That was the start of D1 Training.”

Will found a small place for rent in a Nashville community, just 2,500 sq. ft. of open space. He set about doing the work himself, installing patio cover for a turf surface, laying out the weight room, painting, and whatever else was needed to get the first D1 Training location open. Will kept his ultimate goal in mind.

“What I really wanted to do was provide the general community, everyday people, the same experience I had as a Division 1 athlete — unbelievable coaching, someone to ask about nutrition, a therapist — all in the same environment where they could come and have that Division 1-styled experience that so many athletes around the country get to experience, and to bring this experience to their communities and everyday lives,” says Will, who now serves as the company’s CEO.

D1 TRAINING FITNESS FRANCHISE BEGINS

By 2016, just a few years in, Will had grown to 32 locations across the southeastern U.S., and he was getting inquiries from people interested in bringing D1 Training to their communities. The response was amazing to Will and his team.

“We just had so many inquiries from people in different cities wanting to be in this business,” Will says. “Franchising made a lot of sense. For us, it was a no-brainer to bring people in.”

In early 2016, D1 Training Franchise began operations. Since that time, fitness franchise locations have opened in cities and towns, and dozens of entrepreneurs are considering taking the D1 mindset to their markets.

A BUSINESS DRIVEN BY A MISSION

Will relishes being in the gym, working with athletes and helping guide them towards their goals. Ultimately, that’s the mission of D1 Training — to help every person become an athlete, not just in form, but in mentality as well.

“It’s not just being physically fit,” Will says. “It’s having the right mindset, the ability to tackle a goal and run after it, and surrounding yourself with people in your life who are motivating you and encouraging you towards that goal.”

That’s why D1 Training clients are called athletes. Everyone has the potential to become an athlete, to live up to the aspirations of character and performance that define D1 Training franchise. Will’s mission is infectious, too.

“I’m excited for the possibilities for these owners to change and impact their communities,” Will says. “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had a pro athlete come up to me and say, ‘I started training at D1 when I was in high school.’ How cool is that?”
