Under the current fitness industry, customers pay a high price to hire personal trainers, while personal trainers receive limited and unsatisfactory salaries. This article proposes and analyses a new business model to replace the current unreasonable business model in the fitness industry. Customers pay less on hiring trainers, and personal trainers earn more. The JianKang Health Club is conducted by building a platform where customers contact personal trainers directly without the middleman receiving money. Also, besides the main function, this platform contains other functions, including sharing photos and videos on the personal page, recording unpaid and paid classes, etc. Customers choose where to take training classes to avoid wasting time on the commuter journey, and they pay an affordable price to hire personal trainers to help them exercise better. Personal trainers gain more spare time to develop other jobs besides teaching since they do not need to stay in the office all day, and their salary increases because they gain what customers pay. Furthermore, this article discusses the promising profits of running this platform. Several potential ways to ensure the profits, including receiving membership fees, putting advertisements on the platform, etc. Moreover, this article analyses the number of customers who will be attracted to this platform. Not only does this research contribute to the reformation of the current fitness industry to satisfy both customers’ and trainers’ needs, but also it promotes more creative thoughts about how to adjust a field’s business model to serve customers better.
