Why was The Fast Factory created?

The Fast Factory was born in 2007 with a goal of helping others overcome their obstacles to help them reach their lifestye, health and personal fitness goals.

How we accomplish this?

By creating a Community who share the desire of self-improvement combined with world class coaching and helping clients achieve balance in their life.

What is The Fast Factory?

It is a way of living that focuses on creating balance between one’s Lifestyle, Health and Fitness.

Our Vision

We see our company as a part of your life. A place where you can focus on yourself, learn useful skills, forget about outside obligations and distractions, and truly develop your mind and body to be a better you. We believe in our principles, core values, and educated approaches to achieve results. We value hard work, quality education and above all the relationships with our company. We believe in regularly asking ourselves if there is a better way to deliver results, our messages and approaches, and services. It is important that we stay true to our beliefs, so that we can deliver our very best each day and wake up each morning to do it all over again.

Our Team

Each day our Fast Factory Team awakes with a strong passion to help others reach their goals. This passion far exceeds just fitness and bleeds into all aspects of life.  Our team embodies Passion, Professionalism and Performance.

Passion
We believe strongly that for our members and staff to be successful, our team must love what they do and do what they love!

Professionalism
We believe that our team must strive for excellence, constantly pushing the boundaries of education to better the experience for the members and to strengthen the team.  Accountability is the standard and continuously working towards Mastery of a Professional Coach.

Performance
What sets the best coaches apart is not the quality of their service, but the value of their insight (coaching)—new ideas to help clients either reach their goals or reach new limits in ways they didn’t even know were possible. This is done not by “discovering” what clients already know they need, but by teaching them a new way of thinking altogether.

So Who Are We?

The Fast Factory is a Central, MN based company focused on helping their clients overcome daily lifestyle, health and fitness obstacles.  Learning is apart of our company’s culture and it is spread through out our training programs and classes. With an educated community of athletes, results come quickly and last a lifetime.

We have high standards when it comes to delivering our training services to our athletes. Which is why our coaches in training spend up to 9 months learning and gaining valuable experience in our Professional Coaches Program (PCP). We define quality by our ability to articulate the science behind our methods, safety of our training programs, personal connection with our athletes, ability to inspire and motivate people to unimaginable results, and through offering superior training equipment.

Team Member Happiness and Development

We live by a curiosity for learning and improvement, which fosters a team that is focused on greater member satisfaction first and profits second. Our success is dependent on the strength of our team. Because of this, we go to great lengths to motivate, empower, and reward.

Happiness
We have a responsibility to provide a comfortable, exciting, challenging, and absolutely amazing environment for our team to earn a living.

Autonomy
Our culture of learning, commitment to quality service, and vision for fitness has developed teams of independent thinkers that share a passion for innovative ideas, problem solving, and accomplishment.

Open and Trusting
We believe that organizing a team is impossible in the absence of trust. Our company is an open book for team members that want insight into our business decision-making, program developments, and information that impacts their responsibilities. This includes access to our financial reports as well!

Goal Oriented
Our mission and vision will be achieved only through measurable, achievable, and performance oriented goals. Actions that support our commitments represent strong character and belief in our success. Which is why our team members’ share in our financial growth, as our team pushes our company to new heights, so does their incomes.
