Make Money Changing Lives

Own a Studio

When I met Gregg, I was looking for an internship program to become a personal trainer. I had investigated local schools and compared programs and chose Gregg's for several reasons. First, was the one to one ratio of trainer to student. Second, I could complete the program quickly and less expensively without sacrifice of a quality education. Basically I had my own Master Trainer to use as a resource while learning in a real life operating business with clients instead of in a manufactured classroom setting. Gregg's program also prepared me to pass the ACE exam for national certification. I personally changed my own weight-training routine and those of my clients to those that Gregg has developed. Gregg is a generous mentor and continues to share his expertise. On a personal note, I am very proud to say that while working with Gregg I achieved my number one goal: with Gregg's help I now sport six-pack abs!

I met Gregg over 15 years ago when I was seeking weight training expertise; he was just starting out in the industry. In the ensuing years, I practiced his methods off and on; experimenting with other disciplines and participating in an exercise study in my quest for fitness. By happy coincidence, Gregg and I were reacquainted in 2008. I was struck by his passion for his training program and that very evening, decided that I not only wanted to train with him again, but I wanted to learn his protocols and launch my own personal training career. Throughout my internship, Gregg proved over and over again his depth of knowledge and expertise. I saw my body transform into that of a lean, strong and shapely woman. Thanks to Gregg's personal and highly motivating attention, at 47, I am in the best shape of my life. I feel confident not only in my own body, but in passing on my knowledge to others. The fountain of youth is found at Urban Pump!

Why Choose Us

Proprietary Training Program

Urban Pump® Personal Training Studio uses a cutting edge, proprietary training program developed by Gregg Hoffman, who was voted one of the top 100 personal trainers in America by Men’s Journal Magazine. Through his many years of being a leader in the fitness industry, Gregg Hoffman has learned what works and what does not as far as exercise and diet is concerned. He was able to make the training program so efficient that it only takes two, twenty to thirty minute workouts a week to achieve a fit, highly functioning, shapely body. The training program is called Hystrength (sm), and it consists of four main components:

  • Functional training
  • Stability and proprioception work
  • Scientific core training
  • Strength training

The combination of these elements, along with minimizing the rest intervals between sets produces remarkable results in strength, fat loss, and aerobic fitness. This training program is exclusive to Urban Pump® franchise owners and personal trainers that are Hystrength (sm) certified.

Low Start Up Cost And Overhead

A quick glance at most franchise fitness centers is very telling, in that there is a high up front cost to start. It is a big investment just for the gym equipment, let alone for the retail space needed to house it all. This makes it a challenge for the fledgling business to meet overhead and run at a profit. The set up for an Urban Pump® Personal Training Studio requires very little equipment for the clients to get a remarkably effective workout. And with this, there is less need for a large space. You can run your Urban Pump® Personal Training Studio in either a retail space or out of your home. In both options, overhead is streamlined and much easier to overcome. 


Urban Pump® Personal Training Studio has been has successfully been in business for ten years, but co-owner Gregg Hoffman has been in the fitness industry for 27 years. He has owned and operated two other boutique training studios (Bodies by Hoffman) before opening up Urban Pump® Personal Training Studio with Sharon Hoffman. He has garnered a great amount of knowledge about how to run a successful fitness studio. This expertise is invaluable to helping a young, new business be a going concern.
