Fitness on the Go Offers In-Home Personal Training in Orange County


Company to bring Fitness Equipment and Trainers to homebound, busy professionals and new parents


Career opportunity for fitness entrepreneurs

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Fitness on the Go, the leading Canadian in-home personal training franchise, has expanded to Orange County, California.  Local entrepreneur Carter Kinsella had acquired the territory that serves Orange County, Los Angeles County and San Diego County. The partnership represents the latest example of Fitness on the Go’s continued expansion efforts in the U.S.

 “People understand the importance of fitness, but many are intimidated by big gyms, so they choose to work out at home,” said Kinsella. “Having mobile trainers that arrive to your home or setting of their choice, makes taking that first step towards a better quality of life very accessible and less intimidating. We only hire trainers that are highly qualified and certified, so anyone who books our service is guaranteed to be trained by the best.”

Fitness on the Go was founded in 2005 by Vancouver native Dan Mezheritsky. As a nationally-ranked decathlete, Dan had hopes of competing in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. After a torn hamstring derailed his career, he moved back to Vancouver that same year and shifted his energy to launching Fitness on the Go. Driven by his love for fitness, Mezheritsky started the in-home personal training service that brings customized workouts along with any fitness equipment needed to clients. Fitness on the Go’s only requirements is 6 feet by 6 feet of floor space, 60 minutes, and a positive attitude.

Fitness on the Go began franchising in 2008, but in 2012 Mezheritsky switched up the business model that allowed the trainers more autonomy and cash. By eliminating unnecessary fees, franchisees are offered a work from home opportunity for a low investment fee of $12,500. Corporate support systems allow the franchisees to focus on recruiting trainers, while the trainers can focus on doing what they do best: training.

 “Our business model is unique on both the franchisee side and the trainer side,” said Mezheritsky. “This structure has been so well received because all parties are in alignment – the way employers profit is by squeezing as much money away from the employee so they can keep the difference.  We want our trainers to make as much as possible because the more money our trainers make the happier they are, and the longer they stay with Fitness on the Go, which is what we want. Trainers pay a flat monthly due of $400 which provides them access to a full management team to make running their business far more professional and efficient than doing it on their own. Franchisees have the freedom to find trainers who fit the fitness needs of their territory, while also building name recognition throughout their city’s fitness community.”

 A session can cost anywhere between $51 to $65, depending on length of commitment and the number of fitness sessions. Clients can select from a variety of programs including pre-natal and post-natal exercise, 50 and 60-plus fitness and injury rehabilitation, to name a few. Clients also have an option of choosing a male or female trainer. Each trainer is certified and highly educated, and is dedicated to providing a high level of service that also involves coaching clients on how to make exercise and healthy choices a foundational part of their lives.  

 Currently, Fitness on the Go has over 150 trainers throughout the U.S. and Canada. In Orange County, Carter is looking to hire 10-15 trainers who share the same passion for fitness and determination to be their own boss.

Twice The Love Consignment Sale in Huntington Beach

A new concept in shopping is helping families stay within budgets when it comes to outfitting their children for the new school year.  Families on a budget or parents who want to save money, once priced out of the name brand markets, are now able to purchase name brand clothing and baby gear for a fraction of the retail price thanks to Twice the Love.  Consignment stores are the new trend retail clothing.  Unlike thrift shops which sell donated clothes, owners bring in clothes and receive a portion of the sales price.  The retailer chooses premium merchandise with little wear.

The operation in a win-win-win.  Customers get to choose from trendy name-brand products at a fraction of what they would pay at the mall, clothing owners get a little extra cash, and each sale, Twice the Love sends left over donations from the sale directly into the hands of those who need it through local charities.

Twice the Love Consignment Sale is located 5912 Edinger Ave, Huntington Beach, CA  92649 (next to Vons in the Marina Shopping Village).   And on top of their low consignment prices, they have extra savings events such as their sales   They have  3 day events, 4 times a year.  See their website for more info.

Twice the Love Consignment Sale has created a consignment event where consignors receive 65% of the selling price on their gently used children’s items and shoppers receive steep discounts on name brand clothing, toys and baby gear.  Twice the Love sale owner is Adriane Kovar, who has years of experience in retail and mother of one child.

Ms. Kovar first heard about consignment sales in 2009 soon after the birth of her son.  She quickly developed a true passion for these events and helping the community stay within budget.  With much happiness she is able to bring this event to Hunting Beach to help many Orange County families.
