“We are a property management firm with over 50 locations in the Chicagoland area. We were facing a significant challenge finding someone capable of servicing all our fitness centers. This was having a negative effect on the quality of equipment as well as a redundancy of paperwork for multiple vendors. When we discovered Fitness Team, they were immediately able to perform quality service for all our facilities. We saw significant improvements right away and, after 5 years, we have the Fitness Team do all our installations, service, and yearly preventative maintenance. Our well-kept fitness centers are vital in attracting new tenants and client retention.”

Stacy Purcell, BJB Properties

“The Fitness Team installers were quick, courteous, and very helpful. They delivered and assembled our entire gym after putting in the rubber flooring. I was worried it wouldn’t be done in time for our grand reopening, but they finished the job with time to spare. They even moved our office furniture and removed the old equipment!”

John Smith, Design Initiative
