Professional Athlete Partners


At D1 Training, we don’t only offer a fitness franchise that is a step above the rest, we offer one that was founded and developed by professional athletes. These pro athletes understand what it takes to be the best and have brought that passion to our franchise. As an owner of a D1 Training facility, you’ll have the confidence that your business was built by a team that understands everything it takes to be a successful athlete. This shows in the various programs we offer our members, from scholastic training to collegiate and professional athlete training.

Our fitness franchise has received praise from quite a few professional athletes, including:

Chris Paul

"What makes D1 different is that it feels like a family... it's all about excellence and not settling for less." - Chris Paul

Tim Tebow

"What an opportunity for these kids to learn from the same coaches that are teaching me and Peyton Manning and all these other guys that are involved. It's something that's exciting" - Tim Tebow

LaDainian Tomlinson

"If you're looking for a place where you can come and get everything you need, the training, the nutrition, the rehab, the weight training, the skill training - D1 is the place for you. D1 is the place for the athlete to come and get better each and every day." - LaDainian Tomlinson

Peyton Manning

"I'm kind of envious of the kids today that have the opportunity to train at a place like D1..." - Peyton Manning

Our programs were developed using sports science and with the guidance of our professional athlete partners. We have trained over 1000 professional athletes and over 100 NFL draft picks. Our results-driven training facility is not just another gym franchise. We are redefining an industry and helping athletes of all ages and levels reach their full potential. When you join our mission, you’ll have the backing of not only years of experience and a proven business model, but the expertise of those who have reached the greatest of heights. Together, we’ll be unstoppable.

Passionate About What We Do

If you’ve been to any ordinary gym, you may notice a lack of enthusiasm among the staff. Many gym franchises are strictly focused on getting members signed up for monthly memberships and hoping they forget to cancel them. Beyond the gym floor and some standard classes, they don’t offer members all that much. Beyond the wide array of programs and classes, another major differentiator of our fitness franchise is the enthusiasm and dedication every member of our team shows. From our founders to our executive team to our coaches, everyone is passionate about athletics and sports training – and that dedication shows in the results our members see.

Make An Impact on Your Community

When you bring a D1 Training facility into your area, you’ll be opening more than just a gym. You’ll be providing a supportive and motivating environment for many in your community. Athletic training is a great way to build self-esteem, boost confidence, and improve performance – and all while having a great time in the process.

Our owners aren’t focused on getting a high volume of clients through the door each month to make up for those that leave the previous month. Our model produces loyal members and delivers lasting results so that owners don’t have to spend hours on the phone chasing down members and pushing unwanted services. D1 members happily come back because they know there is nowhere else that will provide the unique experience and measurable results that we do.

If you’re ready to reach new heights with our non-traditional gym franchise, take the first step today!
