was envisioned and incorporated in 2006 as an opportunity to build a unique business that combines new trends in low-impact exercise, proven technology, and sound wellness practices. Our vision is to be the leader in providing high quality, innovative services that play an important role in significantly improving the health and well-being of both body and spirit of each and every client.
Bella Forme straddles the gap between pure fitness related businesses (e.g., gyms, fitness clubs, personal training) and wellness centers (physical therapy, injury rehabilitation, health spas). Our focus is on providing a unique alternative to traditional fitness activities such as strenuous cardio exercise, weight lifting and long workouts.
The technology, methodologies and knowledge that comprise the Bella Forme service offering has been effectively proven in Europe both in terms of a profitable business model, and in the desired results. Bella Forme has taken this technology and treatment "retail", and by utilizing and varying different technologies, we are able to offer a customized approach to the needs of our clients.
At Bella Forme, we believe that there is a great potential for this business based on a simple and effective model and the vast improvements in general health awareness that have spawned massive growth in related businesses.
Each Bella Forme salon possesses an ambience that speaks to both the serious purpose of our business and the comfort and style integral to a distinctive business establishment. Franchise businesses in general are a great way to become an independent business owner and are more popular than ever. There are many franchise opportunities available, so what makes a Bella Forme franchise special?
