I like seeing familiar faces, and I feel very comfortable being here

When I turned 49 years old, I started thinking about my life and some of the things I’ve always wanted to do. You get to a point in your life where you start to revaluate things, priorities, and what you want to do going forward.
I had gotten to the point where my 5’8’’ frame and 215 pounds was too much for my body. My knees were hurting, I was out of breath, couldn’t even see my feet as my stomach was so large. I had a physical and after seeing my test results, I needed help, my doctor told me, you have to lose 50 pounds.
I had heard about a new Gym “The Zoo” opening up in downtown Lake Worth. I attended their open house and became a member. I remember looking around at all the equipment and saying to myself, “I will never be able to lift those weights, run on that treadmill, or better yet, do 100 sit-ups”.
I started very gradually and became more efficient on the machines, using the weights, and continued with my sit-ups. I have lost 40 pounds, and can see a new me. My knees no longer hurt, no more shortness of breath, I can see my feet, and my doctor is amazed with my results.
I want to thank the staff, Dawn, and Sarah for all their encouragement and support.

I have been a 6 year member and a 10 year long Zoo participant. I love the spin classes and the free weight’s floor….I have exercised in many places, but the Zoo is my favorite. The friendly staff always greets me with a smile and a warm hello no matter how early I show up…..Oh yeah it’s really clean too!
As a former collegiate athlete, my health and fitness is a priority. There isn’t another gym in the area that offers me the quality equipment (and awesome prices) that The Zoo does! The team at The Zoo is top notch and I wouldn’t think of going anywhere else!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your constant support, encouragement, and advice in helping my staff and I open The Zoo Health Club, Royal Palm Beach. Diversified Health and Fitness truly redefines the franchisor/ franchisee relationship by providing unparalleled training and support while still maintaining the franchisee’s autonomy.
This unique co-existence separates your franchise from other franchise opportunities within and outside the health club industry.
Typically, franchisees complain of restrictions, confining uniformity requirements, and complete lack of support. For instance, Planet Fitness franchisees are not only confined to restrictive color schemes but are also restricted in choice of equipment. Similarly Gold’s Gym franchisees are entitled to no franchise choice of equipment, club offerings, and ancillary income. As a result, I have been able to and will continue to distinguish my club from the surrounding competition.
Most significantly, I am overwhelmed with your staff’s continuity. From Discovery Day to current, each phone call, email or correspondence from me or my staff to your office has been answered or returned promptly and without exception. Even if it is our tenth phone call to your office at 10:00am, you and your staff have patiently answered our inquiries and listened to our countless concerns. What is more remarkable, however, is your cohesiveness and conglomerate efforts to provide the most effective support. In another words, at Diversified, one hand always knows what the other hand is doing. Whether it be marketing/ advertising strategy, franchise royalty questions, or renegotiating my lease; you have worked together to effectuate the best support and solutions.
Your unprecedented support and training have given me a solid foundation for success. I am quite sure that no other Vice President of Operations would meet with their franchisees on a Sunday, as when Felicia met with me when I was overwhelmed. This example is just one of countless others that distinguishes you and Diversified Health and Fitness. I cannot recommend you too highly to prospective franchisees and investors.
