Chris Klebba, Planet Fitness franchise owner, partnered with Treystar in mid-2011. In addition to offering gym equipment and workout space, the health club is a community dedicated to personal wellness and acceptance. With a "Judgement Free Zone" philosophy and a "Lunk" alarm, Planet Fitness caters to people who want to improve themselves and stay healthy without feeling judged.
As a franchisee, Chris C. Klebba is happy to partner with Treystar and describes how the company sets itself apart from its peers much like his club.
Treystar Stands Out
"We work with about a dozen landlords and property management companies and Treystar stands out," Klebba said. "From the very start with Terry Patterson, their honesty, follow up, and professionalism was obvious."
Planet Fitness is currently located at 4408 Stadium Drive in Kalamazoo.
"Our relationship with Treystar was the primary reason we picked the location we are in. It is difficult to describe Treystar in one word but I would say this, what they say they will do, they do," Klebba said.
Relationships with Treystar do not stop or dwindle after a deal is closed. Clients become friends and partners rather than mere tenants.
"Treystar has become more than our Landlord; they have become a partner. Their continued communication and willingness to help well after the sale has been refreshing," Klebba said.
At Treystar one of the best recommendations a client can give is repeat business. The partnership with Planet Fitness is no exception, as Klebba said he is in the process of opening another franchise with Treystar's help.
"We are actually working with Treystar again on a second, nearby location to expand our operations," he said.
Planet Fitness' Economic Impact
With more than 700 franchises in 47 states, Planet Fitness continues to expand. Klebba is happy to expand his locations locally with Treystar's unique property management insight and experience.
