I have known David Nahama for nearly 24 years meeting him shortly after he created, built and opened Image 2000 health Club for women, one of the most successful Spa & Health facilities in New Jersey. Despite the growth of the health industry and the numerous clubs and facilities that quickly followed, David’s advanced marketing skills , innovative and creative promotional offers and an ability to train, motivate and encourage a professional staff of employees enabled him to not only maintain Image 2000’s prominent position in the marketplace but also develop an affiliated co-ed club, Image Planet. The strategies to clearly separate yet meld both clubs positioned within one building required difficult strategic decisions that would both define the market place and motivate potential clients to join the club best suited for their personal needs. And that’s what David did!
I became an owner/affiliate of Crossfit in July of 2012 . I had a passion for Crossfit and a dream of owning my own business. Initially, we did derive some business, but soon we were faced with the challenges of sustaining our business. There wasn't any formal training as a Crossfit affiliate and we were basically on our own. In the summer of 2014, I met American Fitness Associates and David Nahama, a consulting company that specializes in helping Crossfit facilities boost their sales . it was the best decision I ever made. He didn't just give us ideas, he developed an entire business plan for us and provided the support and hands on training needed to implement his ideas. He taught us a system that we could use, not only when he was working with us but also procedures that we could use moving forward. He established our sales tour, setup a media room for a post tour presentation and instructed us on how to close a sale utilizing an effective presentation. Most importantly, he showed us how to implement a referral system which generated much needed clients to increase our membership base. We went from enrolling 4 or 5 people a month, to over 30. He is a results driven professional with a solid ability to propel the Crossfit business into a successful entity. I highly recommend hiring David Nahama for your business if you are a Crossfit affiliate.
I have not know David long and I don't know him well. With that said the changes I have seen him make in my current clients business that I couldn't reach is amazing. He just doesn't develop systems, but he sits with owners, associates and clients making sure that this systems are working and used where most consultants spray and disappear. David is the opposite for sure. He is laser accurate with identifying the problem and fixing them before moving on.
Before I founded Wynn Realty Services LLC that serves clients that want to buy, sell or open a new fitness center, I spent 40 plus years in the Health Industry as an owner of a group of fitness centers located in Canada, Florida, Texas, Oregon and California. I personally have experienced the good times and the rough times in this business, during those years. When you are prepared by having the benefits of an experienced leader to train, educate, and motivate your employees, then you are able to maximize your potential with your best productive asset for maximum results.
I have worked professionally with David Nahama for over 10 years. I was hired as a manager for the Health Club that he owned in Union, NJ. I can tell you that he is a very professional individual, both personally and professionally. During my tenure as general manager at David's health club, I gained invaluable knowledge and skill sets which I was able to successfully apply to my own personal business endeavors. I was able to open my own Curves for Women franchise. I can tell you emphatically, If it had not been for David and the education that I acquired from working closely with him over those years, opening my own health and fitness business would not have been a possibility. His knowledge of the health and fitness industry is unparalleled and his work ethic is unmatched. Any business that hires him for his services will certainly prosper from his masterful knowledge, expertise and ability.
My name is Thomas Madden. I am part owner of a Strength and Conditioning facility in Northern New Jersey. To be fully transparent, my specialty is as a strength training coach; not a business owner, much less part-operator of a 12,000 sq. ft facility.
