New Fitness Machine Technicians Franchise Supports Equipment Maintenance, Repair

On February 2, entrepreneur Alex Pearson launched a Fitness Machine Technicians ( franchise to provide equipment maintenance and repair in the Lincoln, Omaha, and southwest Iowa region. Passionate about fitness himself, Alex is familiar with the frustration of broken and underperforming equipment and wants to solve the problems he’s witnessed in the gym firsthand. Fitness Machine Technicians provide equipment maintenance and repair for residential and commercial customers alike, from homes to gyms to hotels, apartments, assisted living facilities, high schools, colleges, property management companies, and anyone else who has a fitness business or exercise room. Alex’s goal for the business is to be the No. 1 service provider in the area—the go-to, one-stop shop for businesses and individuals to depend on for reliable service and customer care time and again.

“It’s very frustrating when the machines you rely on to get a good workout in fail,” Alex said. “I can recall several times at the gym when I’ve had to switch up a routine because a piece of equipment was out of order—and then it stays in that way for far too long. Our goal is to get machines up and running as quickly and safely as possible to alleviate this all-too-common problem. I want to be part of the solution, and there’s a big opportunity out there.”

Fitness Machine Technicians offers as-needed services, as well as preventive maintenance contracts, through which businesses can contract to make sure all equipment is running smoothly and provide preventive services like belt tightening and lubrication of moving parts on a monthly, quarterly, or semi-annual basis. The goal is to extend the life of your existing equipment, so business owners don’t face the burden of purchasing brand new machines prematurely. Fitness Machine Technicians is certified as an independent contractor with about 50 different manufacturers to repair and maintain virtually all brands of exercise machines on the market, including service and warranty work.

Alex is not new to business. In fact, he is an entrepreneur to the core. When he was just 16, he and a friend started their own landscaping business, which they operated throughout high school and college, until he sold his half to his business partner in 2019. With a bachelor’s degree in marketing and management from the University of Nebraska Omaha, he is excited to help local residents and businesses keep their fitness equipment running in top shape.
