Matrix Fitness Group Training Brochure 2014

Jun 19, 2015




Group Training demands the right balance of products,
programming and people. Without all three, it’s just plain exercise. It isn’t just the desire, but also the will to push on when others would happily stop and congratulate themselves on a job well done. Our strategy is about combining a talented development team with exclusive partners that excel in their fields and, together with Matrix, are helping to reshape the fitness industry.
