Today we’d like to introduce you to Steven Stoliker.
Steven, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Undergrad and graduate from Syracuse, NY. Played three sports in college before beginning a teaching and coaching career in upstate NY. After three successful seasons in New York that saw teams compete for three state titles, I transferred to South Florida and began coaching at Cardinal Gibbons and Pine Crest academies taking over their Baseball and Basketball programs.
After three more successful seasons, I made a career decision to go back to my education in Biomechanics sports performance and athletic development. I had grown up in Golds Gyms Learning every facet of the business from sales operations training and branding internally and externally to truly learn the “business side of running and operating a Big Box gym. I bought my first franchise three years after moving to Florida with the lady of America chain and turned a corporate club offered to me into the most successful franchise in the country in 12 months smashing every financial performance record in the company. I parlayed that into four more clubs becoming the youngest owner multi-club operator in the company.
After experiencing similar success, I was offered the President of Operations for the entire company where we would see incredible growth and 600 percent growth company-wide in my tenure. I recruited trained and developed eight franchise business coaches nationally and oversaw over 1000 clubs before exiting the company which was sold north of 50 million dollars. I accepted a new challenge and wanted to pursue Big Box traditional gyms in senior management and was offered a position at the height of La fitness boom. My home club in Sawgrass Florida saw witnessed unprecedented growth and the largest turnaround in financials ebita and performance during my tenure nationwide. During my tenure, I was solely responsible for recruiting training and ultimately promoting over 100 managerial personnel. After an amazing five year run, I went back to my roots at Golds Gym, Miami Florida. I was blessed to have an amazing four year run with huge gains across the board in training sales eft ancillaries and parlayed that into multi-club success up the coast in Palm Beach before the company was sold for north of 350 million dollars. I decided to take my talents nationally and began consulting nationally to private club owners who were in distressed clubs new takeovers just opened or wanted a true internal swat and solutions to maximize their efforts and bottom-line production. I was blessed to assist over 100 owners from Maui, Hawaii to Portland, Maine showing owners and their staff proven systems that are fail-proof and sustainable regardless of location or budget challenges. This road leads me back to south Florida and a temporary consulting stay in my home of Boca Raton, Florida.
At the time, it was primarily a PRO Boxing club tucked in the back of the Wear-house district in Boca Raton. I had originally signed on for six months with the former owner to help implement systems and drive revenue. After just three months of widely huge success, I saw unlimited possibilities about buying into this hidden gem and taking. The strengths of this charming club and adding the most modern data-driven human performance gym attached to the Pro boxing club and making it a true boutique one-stop-shop ultra-private for PRO athletes of all sports college athletes and serious-minded high end clients who want to train like a pro athlete experience a true biomechanical approach to training specific to the individual and the quintessential opposite of the Big Box saturated market that is the vast majors of gyms in the country. There’s zero cookie-cutter training in my club, there’s true assessment, programming and applications put in place specific to the individual. The Boxing side has been home to 17 World Champions Olympic Medalist and Gold Gloves champions. Our growth and vision has been ascending since my takeover nearly two years ago when I built a brand new playland with the most state of the art equipment the industry to make this the perfect balance of old school sweet science of Boxing and a futuristic data-driven approach to training to reach peak performance.
In the last two years, I’ve personally hosted and trained some of the best athletes in every major sport. BTB has hosted MLB, NFL, IHL, WTA, and NBAs NY Knicks this past offseason. Division one college athletes in every conceivable sport and high school standouts have also graced our facility and reaped the benefits of our designer programs and next-level training. Our culture, we’ve created to be welcoming to all levels and introduce a serious-minded approach to cutting edge science nutrition and all-encompassing lifestyle shifts with the true intimacy of truly being “Private” has created a buzz and notoriety that has blessed us to be featured on Fox Sports, Showtime, HBO, ESPN and local cover articles in Palm Beach Post and Boca Times. I’ve also had the good fortune to be the Performance Coach for Claressa Shields the eight-time World Champion two time Olympic Gold medalists two-time female athlete of the year and recently announced universal pictures will make a movie on her life. Claressa is largely recognized as the greatest female fighter of all-time. BTB has also been blessed with being off of only a select few gyms in the country to be used to film “Creed” the Rocky series of movies. We are truly blessed to have done all this through the sole reputation of training that is unmatched and real. We don’t talk, we train, it has always been our mantra and I’ve always let word of mouth between the Pro athletes and others serve as an only marketing pieces that we stand alone on. The next chapter of our journey is to scale this template we’ve created and opened four corporate clubs over the next five years from Palm Beach to Aventura. Big Things are coming for BTB Boxing & Human Performance over this next year.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It’s exceeded my expectations across the board through internal prospecting and first-class product and presentation that has differentiated us in the market place, our personalized approach is second to none.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with BTB Boxing & Human Performance – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
We specialize in human performance specific to the individual genetic predisposition blood type, etc., I take them through a 39 step process of assessment and then design programming specific to their strengths weaknesses and opportunities. The equipment education of staff and intimacy where the client truly has the gym to themselves is unheard of and the combination makes for an amazing first-class experience where results are real and performance in their respective sports is tangible and real truly getting the athlete to reach unprecedented levels of success.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
