SHAPE Training, Pennsylvania’s fitness community for people leading strong and elite lifestyles, unveils its program that awards franchises nationwide. Founded by former professional football player Yardon Brantley in 2013, the company’s franchise program offers end-to-end support to its new owners, from hiring the management team to providing support in construction, operations, training, and marketing processes. The fitness company also provides ongoing support and coaching after the launch.
“SHAPE Training has become a hub for growth as an in-person trainer. Our edge lies in our comprehensive training and support for new coaches, which develops them into industry influencers and community leaders. We open doors for team members by teaching the fitness business, beyond day-to-day training and coaching and we have proven systems for high-ticket prices and high-client retention,” said Brantley.
Once the franchise agreement is signed, the SHAPE Training franchise team gives the tools for the franchisee to begin their business. Site selection for the gym starts immediately as the team assigns a broker from its national group and launches site visits once options are identified. The company also gives a welcome packet, timeline checklist, franchise manual, and post-real estate support as part of the franchise package.
Apart from comprehensive training and support in all phases of operations, the franchise also includes lease negotiation assistance, established and curated branding, proven recruitment and retention strategies, as well as advertising materials and assistance.

About SHAPE Training
SHAPE Training is Pennsylvania’s fitness community created by former professional football player Yardon Brantley in late 2013 as a 2-man in-home training business. To make fitness accessible and enjoyable in his community, the brand expanded within a year, with the addition of its now-popular free outdoor boot camp. In 2014, it launched its first physical gym in the urban suburb of East Liberty in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Brantley grew the business with his partners Marty Heben and David Stover, making SHAPE Training a 25-coach training team running over 450 personal training sessions and 30+ group classes per week. SHAPE Training now has over 500 clients in small group and personal training, producing around $2 million in revenue per year.
