Now is a great time to invest in an Amazing Athletes franchise. Our children’s fitness business has been steadily growing as more and more people see for themselves the positive impact we have on early childhood physical education. Our franchisees love that they’re able to build a flexible business that often works around their schedule.
Do you have a passion for changing the lives of children? Would you like to be an independent, business owner? Inquire now to learn more!
Educational sports program
Our educational sports programs are designed for kids from toddlers to adolescents. We’ve developed programs that work in a range of settings, from classrooms to kids parties.
Empowered franchise owners
We give our franchisees knowledge and tools to help them run their own business. They’re given the agency to make decisions such as which programs to offer, when to schedule jobs, and who they’d like to hire.
Rated as one of the highest
We’ve won a number of awards thanks in part to the comprehensive training and support we offer our franchise owners.
Home Based Business
Amazing Athletes kids fitness franchises can easily be run from a home office. Why invest in a franchise that requires a costly business lease when you can save money and work from home?
No Experience Necessary
Our franchisees come from a wide range of backgrounds. We’ve developed a simple business model that’s easy to master so you don’t need to worry about starting from scratch – we’ll help you start off right.
Low Start-Up and Overhead
Because we’re a mobile franchise, startup costs are relatively low. Plan on investing in things like a reliable vehicle, sports equipment, uniforms, and a great computer system.
Proven Business Model
Why reinvent the wheel by going it alone when you can invest in a proven business model? We’ve already developed a system that’s highly efficient and gives franchisees plenty of opportunities to profit.
We prepare our franchisees by offering them comprehensive training in our business model as well as smart business strategies. We also provide them with a number of support resources that simplify their job.
Low Flat-Rate Royalties
The royalties you’ll pay are clear-cut and are set at a flat rate. We want franchisees to get as much “bang for their buck” as possible and want them to see royalties as a valuable investment in their business rather than a drain on their profits.

WHAT OTHER SAY ABOUT US
“I truly feel like I have been blessed to have found Amazing Athletes. This business gives me the ability to run my own business, while doing something I love and feel such a passion towards! I tell my friends all the time, my only regret is not doing this earlier in life!”
Jared Taylor, Amazing Athletes of The Upstate SC
“The entire group of owners is something you have to see and experience. Some of the most passionate and energetic people you will ever meet. I am blessed to work along with some truly amazing people across the country to share in the same objective.”
Sean Gladwish, Amazing Athletes North Oakland County, MI
“We've had a lot of great changes, marketing-wise with the improvements to the brand and refreshing of paperwork and supplies. I think that's vital. Kids notice new things like no one else, and they tell their parents. I see my competition with the same old tired, old fliers all the time . Yes, while a brand and design needs some consistency, paperwork gets easily lost in pre-schools. Ours stand out. It's been my experience that once I get into a school, there really is no competition any more. Our program is that varied and that much fun. In every school, I have five times the enrollment of every other program.”
Larry Kiernan, Amazing Athletes Northern New Jersey
