Building Success, Online And Off

Fit Nation has earned a fantastic reputation, so we asked Rob how they have managed to grow their business and get such great reviews online. He said:

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that sets eNeRGy Rock Gym apart from the many other fitness centers in West Virginia. Here’s Julia and David’s response:

“I don’t believe anywhere else offers rock climbing as a style of fitness. It’s an up-and-coming sport, so that would probably be the biggest reason.”

A One-of-a-Kind Fitness Center’s Secret to a Strong Online Reputation

Fairmont Fitness has managed to build the kind of reputation any business owner would envy, and to learn a little more about that reputation and this one-of-a-kind business, we sat down with Fitness Instructor, Shanna Miller.

The first thing we wanted to know was what makes Fairmont Fitness unique compared to the many other fitness centers in West Virginia. Shanna told us:

“The small, family atmosphere. We have something for everybody. If you like CrossFit, aerobics, group fitness, Zumba, water aerobics — we have something for everybody, whatever your fitness level is. There’s no way we could turn anybody away. We have something for everybody in the family.”

Shanna went on to say:

“We’re clean. I can’t stress that enough. We’ve been voted the best pool in Marion County, and every single one of our members say that we’re the cleanest and most beautiful. It’s just a nice, aesthetically beautiful looking gym.”

When we asked what the secret is to such a solid online reputation at Fairmont Fitness, Shanna pointed to the fact that they do a little bit of everything and have something for everyone. She added:

“We’re like a family. It’s not a commercial, big box gym. If you join, you’re one of the family. We know our members by name. We build a rapport with them.”

Making the World a Better Place by Giving Back

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Fairmont Fitness and how they work to make the world a better place. Shanna told us about the many ways they give back to their community:

“We have tons of fundraisers. We support the Marion County Animal Shelter. We have an Aerobicsathon twice a year for HOPE (a domestic violence center). We are always willing to offer donations to schools and activities that are doing fundraisers. We like to help the youth and the younger generations.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Fairmont Fitness has grown through Instagram and Facebook, word of mouth and by offering their members three-day passes to hand out to their friends and family. They also get the word out through t-shirts.

It’s clear that Shanna knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s her expert advice for the many other business owners out there:

“Get to know your customers. Get to know what they want. Take two minutes out of your day to get to know your people because they’re your livelihood. If you don’t know your clientele, you’re in trouble.”

I was also amazed at the positive attitudes and vibes that I got while being there. This place is full of smiles and hospitality.” – Rachel S.

Not Your Average Fitness Center

We wanted to learn all about Clearwater Beach Fitness and its impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with the owner, Juan Garcia.

The first question we had for Juan was what is it that sets Clearwater Beach Fitness apart from their competition in Florida. Here’s Juan’s response:

“We’re separated from the competition because of the convenience we offer for tourists and locals since we’re on the beach. We work hard on the cleanliness of the facility… We have independent personal trainers. We don’t do corporate trainers. Most of the trainers have bachelor degrees in Exercise Science and Nutrition.”

Juan went on to tell us that most of the reviews of the gym mention their cleanliness, customer service and highly qualified trainers, and said:

“I’m also bilingual — an English and Spanish speaker.”

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Clearwater Beach Fitness and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Juan had to say:

“At Clearwater Beach Fitness, we strive to deliver outstanding service as we take the time to get to know members on an individual basis, so that we can help assist them in achieving their fitness goals.

Whether your goal is to lose weight, recover from an injury or if you’re just starting out, our certified trainers can help you reach your fitness goals in an environment that is comfortable and non-intimidating.”

Building Success Through Great Service

Juan attributes Clearwater Beach Fitness’ strong online reputation to their commitment to providing great service for their clients, as well as to the fact that they are the only gym on Clearwater Beach, which leads to many celebrities and tourists frequenting the gym.

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Clearwater Beach Fitness has gotten their name out there through social media, by being a part of the Clearwater Chamber of Commerce, by partnering with hotels and through direct mail, but the vast majority of their business comes from word of mouth.

There are so many business owners out there looking to build the kind of online reputation Clearwater Beach Fitness has. When we asked what advice he has for them, Juan emphasized the importance of customer service, making your clients happy and prioritizing cleanliness in the facility.


Congratulations to the team at Clearwater Beach Fitness for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Juan, for taking the time to speak with us!

Whether your goal is to get fit, compete or learn self-defense, Evolution Muay Thai in Midtown Manhattan has something for everyone.

Evolution Muay Thai has received more than 150 reviews on five verified sites with an average rating of 4.73 stars, earning them a stellar Rating Score™ of 99.25 and two 2019 Top Rated Local awards for ranking among the top 100 businesses and the top five fitness centers in all of New York!

Here’s just one of the many five-star reviews that got them there:

“Evolution Muay Thai is a great gym for beginners or experienced martial artists who want to take their skills to the next level. Brandon is an amazing coach/instructor that takes his time to work on any bad habits that I’ve developed over my years of training in Muay Thai. He always keeps a fun and friendly atmosphere in the gym that is welcoming to any newcomers. The other instructors/fighters have been great as well with their own individual teaching styles. [This is a] five-star gym all around!” – Richard M.

Not Your Average Fitness Center

Brandon Levi, the owner of Evolution Muay Thai, took a few minutes out of his day to tell us a little more about this one-of-a-kind fitness center and the impressive online reputation they’ve managed to build.

To start our conversation, we asked Brandon what it is that sets Evolution Muay Thai apart from their competition in New York. Here’s what he had to say:

“We’re more fun. We have very good instructors, and everybody who works here knows that their job is to teach as well as they can and make everybody laugh and have a good time. We strive to teach the best form of the styles that we offer, entertain people and keep everybody happy.”

We also wanted to know why they do what they do at Evolution Muay Thai and how they give back and make the world a better place. Here’s Brandon’s response:

“We give people confidence and help people with weight management, with positive body image and to learn a useful skill while having a good time doing it.”

Building Success by Creating a Positive Experience

When we asked Brandon about Evolution Muay Thai’s secret to such a strong online reputation, he said:

“We try to do the best by people when they come in and strive to give people a pleasant experience when they train, and people appreciate it.”

Outside of building the kind of online reputation any business owner would envy, Evolution Muay Thai has spread the word about who they are and what they do with the help of Marketing 360®:

“We have Marketing360. They have a program we’re running, and we have a YouTube account that we put videos on. We do a little bit of marketing through Yelp, Facebook and Google but most of our marketing is organic — people leaving good reviews.”

There are so many business owners out there looking to build the kind of online reputation Evolution Muay Thai has. Here’s the expert advice Brandon has for them:

“Make sure you have a good product; strive to hire the best staff that you can, and know your value. One of the biggest mistakes that first-time business owners make is trying to undercut their competition. That usually ends up backfiring. You’re better off knowing your value and charging accordingly, because perceived value is value. If people think you’re only charging a certain amount, and it’s below what the market price is, then people are going to value your service below the market price.”


Congratulations to the team at Evolution Muay Thai for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Brandon, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Evolution Muay Thai in New York. Visit their website today!

This gym strives to help you be your best self, whether that means you are competing in CrossFit games or are working on being able to do a push-up for the first time. The coaches are great and very encouraging and understanding. The workouts are HARD, but you feel great once you are done.” – Danielle V.

A One-of-a-Kind Fitness Center’s Secret to a Strong Online Reputation

CrossFit IronBorn has managed to build the kind of reputation any business owner would envy, and to learn a little more about that reputation and this one-of-a-kind business, we sat down with the owner, Jon Farwell.

The first thing we wanted to know was what makes CrossFit IronBorn unique compared to the many other fitness centers in New Hampshire. Jon told us:

“I don’t know if we’re for everyone. We actually interview every person that comes in, and we have a consultation to make sure that we can help them. If we feel that we can’t, we actually work to help them find a different gym that will better meet their goals and what they’re looking for. But we are a gym that someone can come to if they’re looking for a strong community, if they’re looking to grow and learn as an athlete, and if they’re looking for a different and exciting workout experience every day.”

When we asked what the secret is to such a solid online reputation at CrossFit IronBorn, Jon pointed to the fact that, if their members believe in what they’re doing and have enjoyed their time with them, they ask if they would consider leaving a review. It’s that simple.

Making the World a Better Place by Changing Lives

“Get a mentor or coach that can help you through the marketing experience. It’s very, very difficult to do well, and there’s a wealth of people who know what to do out there. All you have to do is find one.”

Flower City CrossFit has received many overwhelmingly positive reviews across four different verified sites with an average rating of 4.74 stars, earning them an impressive Rating Score™ of 95.45 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking as one of the top five fitness centers in New York!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“I’m a newbie to CrossFit, but I did not feel intimidated or unwelcome here. They have a great, friendly staff, and owners, Laura and Jeff, are incredible with communication via email. I’ve started the boot camp, and the instructors are awesome at giving alternatives if the original exercises are too difficult. I would definitely recommend Flower City CrossFit to new members!” – K.H.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Flower City CrossFit is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Fitness Center

We were excited to learn all about Flower City CrossFit and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the owner, Jeff.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Flower City CrossFit stand apart from its competitors. Jeff told us that their phenomenal coaching and programming differentiates them from anything else in the area. He told us:

“We have a wonderful community of people in our gym. This community keeps energy levels up to an intoxicating level! We want better, more well-rounded people everywhere. Safety and form are very important. We want to make you better at what you do out there by virtue of what you do in here! ”

Jeff also told us a bit more about CrossFit and its naturally inclusive nature:

“A fundamental part of CrossFit is that what we do can be scaled or modified to fit any body at any fitness level! We pride ourselves on being open and accessible to [all].”

We asked Jeff about the Flower City CrossFit business mission, and he told us:

“The overall mission is to promote total fitness and wellness in our clients in everything that we do. We want to improve everyone’s lives. We want to make people better at whatever they do outside of the gym!”

Building Success, Online And Off

Flower City CrossFit has earned a fantastic reputation, so we asked Jeff how they have managed to grow their business and get their name out. He told us that they are active on social media and said that, the more businesses have a presence online, the more people will see them. When we asked him how they have gotten such incredible reviews, he said:

“It really happens organically for us. If you really strive for excellence and you do the right things by people, they will reciprocate by giving good reviews and referrals.”

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Flower City CrossFit has managed to. We asked if Jeff could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what he had to say:

“I think that the core of growth is two-fold. Number one is always striving for excellence in what you do; no matter how much you get referrals, you aren’t going to grow if you aren’t doing an excellent job or aren’t better than the competition! Second, people have to know about you. You need to find the avenues that will best get the word out for your business or products.”


Congratulations to Flower City CrossFit for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Jeff for taking the time to speak with us!
