Ten years ago, Faamati W. decided she wanted to own a business that fit with her active lifestyle. The second she walked into Snap Fitness, she knew it was exactly what she was looking for.
“I looked at a couple different gyms and then they told me about Snap Fitness,” Faamati W. said. “I went in and simply fell in love with everything about it.”
Faamati opened her first club in Lino Lakes in September 2004. As a first time business owner, Faamati had initial concerns when she was opening her club. They were all alleviated when she saw the members start flooding in.
“Of course I was worried when we were opening up, but it only took us a few months to see our hard work pay off, ” she said. “It’s been an amazing adventure; it was easy to start and it’s been great ever since.”
She now owns five Snap Fitness locations in Minnesota and plans to keep expanding. She says her success has definitely been in part due to Snap Fitness corporate’s world-class support.
“Opening each club has been smooth. Corporate is easy to work with and has always helped us along the way,” she said. “They give you everything you need to run a business.”
Faamati has had some members that have been there since the start. She says that’s one of the most rewarding parts of owning her own gym.
“People will come and tell me ‘thank you’ and say that they feel better about themselves,” she said. “It motivates me when people tell me that my gym has made a difference in their lives.”
