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

“This place is great! The coaches are amazing and invested in your success. They teach, support and insist on proper form over increasing weight — [which] prevents injuries. They are able to modify ANY exercise to your level and around any injury, weakness or prior surgery. They are present and engaged in your workout, calling out tips, encouragement or working with you directly to correct [your] form. They notice if you come in and check up on you if you aren’t coming. They are real people and are not bulked up, nor do they want you to ‘bulk up’ at the cost of your health. They are welcoming and know your name. It truly is the ‘happy gym.’” – Bethany N.

Not Your Average Fitness Center

Bronson, the owner of Ellicott City Health and Fitness, generously gave us a few minutes of his time to tell us about this one-of-a-kind business and its award-winning online reputation.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that sets Ellicott City Health and Fitness apart from the many other fitness centers in Maryland. Here’s Bronson’s response:

“We provide a high-value service to individuals who are motivated to get in shape.”

We also wanted to know why they do what they do at Ellicott City Health and Fitness and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Bronson had to say:

Building Success by Helping Others Reach Their Goals

When we asked Bronson about Ellicott City Health and Fitness’ secret to such a strong online reputation, he said:

“We try to help others meet their goals. We don’t sell access; we sell coaching.”

Outside of building the kind of online reputation any business owner would envy, Ellicott City Health and Fitness has spread the word about who they are and what they do through blogs, YouTube and Google.

Clearly, Bronson knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s his expert advice for the many other business owners out there:
