are brutally honest with our clients. We tell you what is really
happening during our process of working with you, which does
not always overlap with what you may want to hear. We
maintain open communications with you during the good times,
as well as the times when you may experience growing pains.
We treat clients respectfully. We will
not waste your time or ours on strategies that are not
getting you measurable results.
If we don’t have the solution, we find it
for you; we never leave you hanging. We

There are other business coaches and consulting
companies for the fitness industry, BUT
we are the only coaching and consulting service whose
founders and affiliates have real-world experience as
business coaches, personal trainers and/or fitness
nutritionists. We have worked with everyone from Fortune
50 companies to solo entrepreneurs.
Additionally, members of our team have launched
several successful fitness industry startups. This
extensive background has helped us achieve an unmatched
track record in coaching and consulting for the fitness
among the few coaches and consultants in the fitness
industry who have worked outside the fitness industry as
well. There is, to a degree, a
“cocoon” effect among coaches and consultants in the
fitness industry. Some people know the fitness industry,
but lack the perspective to effectively apply their
expertise across the variety of disciplines necessary to
build a burgeoning fitness business enterprise. But Tom
Perkins and his team possess a diverse and broad
combination of education, experience and knowledge. It
is this background shared by Tom and other members of his
team that fortifies the depth and breadth of our
we identify your critical business issues, we work with you
in developing cutting-edge, step-by-step strategies, coupled
with innovative and practical ideas and an experienced
support system. Through regular and consistent
contact, we guide you through successful solution
implementation, while maintaining flexibility to best
accommodate your needs.
We also share some "straight
talk" about your hopes, your dreams, and what's truly
possible. While we stay firmly grounded in the realities of your
business and your goals, we focus on the positive and never
lose sight of the finish line. Your dreams may be closer to
becoming your reality than you think!
As clients rise to the challenge
of reaching for the goals we help them define and aim for,
it is not uncommon for them to tell us that they’re
feeling a renewed energy for not only their businesses, but
their lives as well. This is because, ultimately, our
strategies and resources save them time, freeing them to
grow their business, increase their income, and achieve the
success they want.
Working with Fitness Industry
Solutions is like having a Virtual Business Manager. Have
you ever wished you’d had someone available to explain
something to you—some procedure, such as shrewd
negotiating, that you didn’t want to do wrong? Some
lengthy forms you didn’t want to hunt down, then decipher
the instructions about how to fill out? Whether or not you
were maximizing your business potential? Those things—and
countless others—are exactly the kinds of things that
Virtual Business Managers help you solve. And we can help
you do it all without even being in the room with you!
One of Tom’s guiding
philosophies is that if you can take care of your business
life, you’ll find a balance in your personal life. Not only does he deeply believe
this—and lives by it as well—he’s seen it in his
clients. In other words, the work you do in creating a
fulfilling work life will have a profound effect in your
life outside of work.
