Business Profile: Fitness Together in Maple Grove

May 23, 2016 01:17PM, Published by Doug Erlien , Categories: Business

Fitness Together - Maple Grove Owner John Unverzagt worked at nearly every fitness center, but was driven to do more.

He found Fitness Together in a rather unique way. 

“I had a client ask me if I had ever thought about going on my own,” Unverzagt said. “I told him I didn’t know where to start and he said 'Google'. I found Fitness Together and the rest is history.”

The Colorado-based fitness chain has franchises in 33 states, including two locations in Minnesota. Unverzagt was hired in April 2011 to manage the Maple Grove location and six months later, he purchased the studio located at 11250 86th Avenue North.

The Fitness Together studio that focuses on private, one-on-one training with a specific training program for every client. Fitness Together’s mission is to help achieve a healthier lifestyle.

“We’re an alternative to the big box clubs,” Unverzagt said. “Perfect for the people who are motivated and ready to get started.”  

The process begins with an intake and a free consultation in one of three private workout suites which gives both client and trainer a baseline to begin working together to achieve the client’s goals. All personal training is by appointment only during hours of operation. 

Since opening the studios, Unverzagt and his team have been active in the community participating in and sponsoring community events. 

This past October, Unverzagt purchased his second Fitness Together location in Edina.
