Triple the Fitness: Franchisee Secures 3 Training Facilities in Colorado

We are excited to announce the newest owner of D1 Training: Will Howard. Will is thrilled to bring this unique, results-driven model to Denver with three prime locations.

Who Is Will Howard?

A resident of Colorado, Will is a father to two children, aged eight and eleven years. He holds a degree in computer science as well as a PMP (Project Management Professional) certification and worked as an executive consultant before becoming a franchise owner. His role involved helping clients build teams and programs in the field of IT.

Why Did Will Make a Career Change?

Although Will enjoyed some aspects of his corporate position, he wanted a career that was on his own terms – rather than subject to the discretion of his superiors. After doing some digging online, he came to the FranCoach team seeking a bigger say in his future and the chance to determine his own worth. He didn’t want to be beholden to anyone else anymore.

Throughout the Discovery Process, he was incredibly involved and committed. He vetted a diverse group of franchises, giving each one his time and attention to truly determine the right path for him. At the end of the process, D1 Training stood out as the perfect match.

What Will Make Will a Great Franchise Owner?

As Will embarked on his journey toward franchise ownership, he worked with FranCoach’s Luke Schulte, who guided him to the ideal franchise for his needs, goals, and preferences. Here is what Luke has to say about why Will is sure to succeed:

“Will is going to be a great franchise owner because of his open-minded perspective. Throughout the process, he was not afraid to explore. Sometimes, people come to us fixated on a certain brand – but what I loved about working with Will was that he was ready to soak up information on many diverse franchises. He saw every franchise through their process and was able to get excited about a few different options before landing on D1 as the right match for him.”

Why Did Will Choose D1 Training?

Founded by a former collegiate athlete, D1 Training offers customers a caliber of training that is typically reserved for Division 1 athletes. With proprietary training methods, D1 Training facilities deliver outstanding athletic training to beginners, professional athletes, and everyone in between. The brand offers franchisees turn-key support and guidance in terms of workout planning, marketing, site selection, and much more.

Will was immediately inspired by the culture and structure of D1 Training. He worked with the brand’s Franchise Development Director, Richard Collins, to learn more about the outstanding support and impassioned culture that has helped D1 continue growing and expanding to new heights. Will is excited about the opportunity to enrich people’s lives in his Denver community through fitness and athleticism with D1.

Please join our team at FranCoach in congratulating Will Howard and wishing him luck as a new owner of D1 Training.
