How Running a Fit-ex Business Has Changed Our Lives
by Kevin and Teresa Buckler:
The most rewarding aspect of running a Fit-ex franchise is the flexibility and freedom
it gives us. We can organise our business to fit around our family life rather than
the other way around. The variety of work is a real bonus - no two days are the same,
different challenges, meeting new people, travelling to new places on a daily basis.
It makes for an interesting working life. Working together as a couple is a new experience
for us and we are both enjoying it enormously.
We have discovered skills we didn't know we had as we set about developing our business.
Having a partner to share ideas and face challenges together is a major plus for
us. For us a great way to start the week is a business breakfast in a local hotel
where the two of us can discuss forthcoming jobs and prospects.
Despite Fit-ex being a home-based business it is important for us to keep our family
and business life as separate as possible which we have managed very well. Our three
sons have banned us from talking shop at the dinner table, quite rightly!
We were looking for a franchise which would give genuine job satisfaction as well
as earning a living. We have definitely found that with Fit-ex. There is real pleasure
to be had from leaving someone's home or business looking nicer than when you walked
It's a great feeling to know that your business can expand in several directions
if you wish to take the opportunity. Our success to date has exceeded our expectations
but would not have been achievable without the training, support and willingness
to help from the Fit-ex team.

On average, we are saving about 18% on each order since we started using Fit-ex.
Just to let you know that a customer searched for locations for Silent Gliss Metropole
and I came up, so she phoned me. Originally she had John Lewis out to measure, but
was not impressed. So the work you did to get us on the Silent Gliss site is working!
