When we started AFS, we knew it was time for a credible and universally trusted Association to provide you, the courageous entrepreneur, with all the benefits the big box health clubs have had access to for so long.

We’re here to support your efforts, drive more business and help you achieve your dreams. As an entrepreneur, in this very competitive market, you can’t afford to guess and be wrong.  

We believe that all studios and gyms should have access to every tool necessary for success, which is why AFS is priced to be affordable for everyone.

I look forward to welcoming you to the AFS community and family today!
