D1 Sports - Franchise Information
The Gym Franchise for Champions. Not your average big-box membership gym.
D1 stands out from the competition because it hires teams of highly qualified trainers, fitness experts and support personnel to provide clients with a level of fitness and training programs which is typically reserved for elite athletes at Division 1 schools. The D1 Sports Training model is built on small-group personal training classes and an athletic-focused philosophy, where the D1 facilities are able to focus on providing the best fitness programs on the market.
