Our Client Testimonials

  • We worked with the consultants from the Atwood Consulting Group on an assessment of the opportunity of buying a $70 Million fitness chain in the Middle East. This was a complicated project. Their analytic ability and industry expertise helped us understand the market and the company’s potential. The Atwood group was a pleasure to work with, highly professional, and is certainly a team of very talented business minds.

  • John Atwood and his team provided invaluable experience and perspective from start-up to full operations. They were fully engaged with us for months before we opened and continued to provide guidance and support throughout our first year of operations. We have continued to seek their advice throughout the years and they are now helping us plan the development of a field house. They have been a great resources for us and are true experts and professionals.

  • We hired Beth Wald to help us enhance our work culture. She came in and immediately built trust with our management team of over 25 people. She led us through the process of developing new vision and mission statements as well as a set of core values, which she helped us to launch and implement throughout the company of 300 staff working in four locations around Greater Boston. We originally hired her for 6 months, but because she added such value we extended her time with us to a full year. Since that engagement, she has been back on a number of occasions helping us open and launch a new brand, manage one of our clubs, and recruit and hire staff. She is a pleasure to work with and made a real difference in our business.

  • Beth Wald and Tara Jensen from Atwood Consulting guided us prior to the January 2018 opening of our luxury fitness club in Boston. Our ownership and founding team had virtually no fitness industry experience, so Beth and Tara’s expertise and guidance were critical to our opening success. From hiring and recruiting, to startup operations, to initial sales and marketing strategy and execution, and beyond, Tara and Beth were a critical part of the team prior to opening. Their hard work helped us to get off on the right foot and eventually get voted Best Fitness Club in Boston by Boston Magazine only six months after we opened. We would not be where we are without them. Beth and Tara were tireless, great to work with, very smart, and--most importantly--they cared about our success!

  • "After several years of stagnant growth, Atwood Consulting examined every aspect of our 90,000 square foot fitness/tennis facility and identified key strategies to increase revenue and manage our expenses. The Atwood team was appropriately assertive in creating positive change while also being sensitive to the status quo. Their expert guidance enabled us to establish a sales/retention system to maximize our member recruitment and engagement."

  • "We were in the need of someone who specialized in the operations of fitness centers and came across Atwood Consulting Firm. Atwood performed an operational and financial audit for us on a fitness center and far exceeded expectations. Atwood was great to work with and really knew the fitness/gym industry inside and out. Highly recommend working with Atwood Consulting Firm."

  • We were at a point in our gym business where some tough strategic decisions had to be made, in a relatively short period of time. Beth not only analyzed the company’s finances and operations, but also worked closely with members of staff and spoke directly to clients, in order to gain a personal feel and understanding of the gym. We were able to identify our strengths, streamline our business, and redirect strategy accordingly. It has been a privilege to work with Beth and her team; reaching out to Atwood Consulting was the best decision!
