Prospective franchisees looking for a franchise that promotes healthy living and embraces youth sports should look no further than Amazing Athletes. Amazing Athletes is an incredible opportunity that is considered to be a family friendly business. Started by two a husband and wife team, Chiropractor Dr. Janee Henderson and sports coach husband Glen Henderson created Amazing Athletes to promote healthy living and physical activity amongst children. We asked Dr. Henderson about getting started
How you came to the decision to start Amazing Athletes as a team, was it an easy decision?
As life-long athletes we knew it was important to provide children with an early introduction to healthy living and physical activity. In addition, research has consistently demonstrated that movement is the young child’s preferred method of learning since they are cannot fully understand a concept until they physically experience it.
After graduating from Chiropractic school in 2000 we set off to England to Glen’s hometown and started a Family Chiropractic Clinic. Glen having a BS in Business and an International Market Degree we built a successful clinic together in less than 3 months. We continued to grow our clinic for another 18 months until our first child was born and decided to sell our practice and move back to the states to be closer with family.
Moving back to California in late 2002 we launched Amazing Athletes with a huge success. Amazing Athletes started a pilot program in 11 pre-schools in Southern California. In less then 2 years we were in over 120 locations with over 2000 children participating in our program.
We realized the only way to keep a quality program and to get as many children involved learning in our program was to franchise. We are excited to announce that we now have over 50 franchises nationwide who teach our program in more than 500 locations across the United States.
Today, Amazing Athletes is growing. Thanks to the positive press and feedback that they have received nationwide, Amazing Athletes appeals to people who have children and for who healthy living is important. There has been an outpouring of successful stories from people who have opened their own Amazing Athletes. Please visit our page to read what Amazing Athletes owners are saying!
