Faster Stronger Wiser Fitness Consulting: Elevating Trainers, Empowering Clients

Glenn Payne Owner of Faster Stronger Wiser LLC

 I've' been in the fitness industry now for 12+ years. My fitness journey began after my basketball career ended. I was playing semi-professional basketball in Dallas, Texas, and in the third game of my season, I dislocated my knee. After a long year and a half of self-rehab (I had no insurance), I finally attempted to return to the court, only for my team and my potential agent to nicely inform me that my career was over. I was devastated, but a new opportunity presented itself: a personal training job. I was working the front desk at 24 Hour Fitness, and the fitness manager noticed that I would train myself, team members, and other gym members in my free time. He informed me that I could make a good living off personal training, which sent me on my career in Fitness.

2011, I moved back to Pasadena, CA, where I was gifted my first personal training job. I would start very slowly—one year, to be exact. I didn't design programs correctly and had no business understanding regarding fitness training. After a year of being a personal trainer for a company, I tried to branch out on my own, but I realized that the grass wasn't greener on the other side. I returned to 24 Hour Fitness, where I improved my skill sets and added group exercises to my resume. I began teaching boxing classes around this time, and at my peak, I was training five clients a day and training 20 classes a week. The work I was putting in led me to a fitness manager role in 2015 at the same 24-Hour Fitness club I started at as a personal trainer. In the next four years, I earned group exercise instructor of the month honors, hosted 175+ member Spartan Boot Camps, hosted multiple personal trainer development workshops, and was named District Fitness Captain. This title gave me control of fifteen 24 Hour Fitness clubs where I was responsible for developing their training teams and financial performances.

In 2020, during the pandemic, I was one of the few trainers asked to host virtual training sessions and classes for the members while they were stuck in their homes. I performed this role for a year and a half, hosting virtual boot camps and one-on-one sessions and recruiting trainers to return to 24 Hour Fitness once the doors reopened. In 2022, I was promoted to general manager. After a year of bouncing around a few clubs, I left 24 Hour Fitness to seek more opportunities to develop trainers. In 2023, I joined the team at Pickup USA Fitness, which was a perfect opportunity to combine my love of basketball and Fitness. In my time as Director of Fitness, I was able to help the company grow by over $10,000 monthly in private training and improve the fitness revenue share to 12% of the company's total revenue. My passion for teaching trainers led me to step out on my own so that I may be able to impact as many fitness trainers as possible, as well as develop a fitness education program that will make a long-lasting mark on the fitness industry.

The Faster Stronger Wiser Mission: To Challenge People to Be Better Than Their Best!

I believe that all trainers can be the determining factor in the success of the fitness business. By developing a team of outstanding personal trainers and group exercise instructors, a gym can maximize its profits while ensuring it is a place for people to excel physically. This process begins with the fitness team, and having a great team leads to great results.
