Our approach to personal finances is free of judgement and shame. We offer live or recorded webinars, online courses, and one-on-one guidance through Trainer Office Hours and Trainer on Demand services (it's like "phone-a-friend" for your finances).
What is The Financial Gym?
We're a well-being-services company that takes a fitness-inspired approach to personal finances. We teach people how to make smarter money decisions that add up over time. Just like a personal trainer at a gym, our financial trainers give expert guidance, cheer members on, and hold them accountable in ways that no mobile app or tech platform can. It's widely known that people are stressed out about their finances. In fact, the recent studies show 78% of us are worried about our money. And we know talking about it can be tough. We've seen it all at The Gym, the good, the bad, and the deeply in debt. Nothing phases us. Employees can turn to our trainers for answers to their questions without worrying about feeling judgment or shame. They can talk about creating a realistic budget, managing their credit-card debt, saving for emergencies, or, really, any financial-related questions. The corporate services we provide add tremendous value to our clients' employees, resulting in higher engagement in their work responsibilities and having a positive impact on employee retention, as well, because employees feel cared for by their organization. We lift the heavy burden off benefits and HR managers by helping their employees better understand the benefits available to them, which means they're more likely to enroll and take advantage of what's being offered.
How is The Financial Gym different?
First of all, we don't require long-term contracts, and we have services that can fit any budget. We're not a tech platform or another mobile app to download on your phone. Instead, we're real people helping employees with the goal of empowering them with tools to be successful financially. And we don't sell any insurance or financial products. Instead, we focus on delivering education and literacy resources so individuals are able to manage their own finances and don't have to pay an institution to do it for them.
Who is a good fit for The Financial Gym?
Really, any employee within the U.S. that receives a paycheck is a great fit for what we offer. I'm happy to say we work with organizations of all sizes, from 10 to 10,000 plus, and our clients come from a variety of industries, from law firms and financial institutions to HR-tech companies and hospitals and everything in between.
