We aim to create an environment where people of all ages and genders can enjoy a comfortable life and have the desire to make life the best it can be.


This is a universal value of people.


The FCT business operates along the themes of "Bring Fitness Closer!" and "Exercise in Everyday Life!"


Additionally, we adhere to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and aim to coexist with a rich global environment.

Our Vision

We, at First Class Trainers, envision creating innovation by merging various services, all while viewing the world of business with a broad perspective, free from the conventional wisdom and practices of the industry. Looking back at history, we believe that the factors that have allowed our human ancestors to survive are the sharing of knowledge and information through communal living, and the inventions and new connections that have resulted from this, which are carried on to the present day. First Class Trainers aims to evolve as a provider of physical health solutions, creating new value through collaborations with various companies.

Operating Policy

We at FCT, support the relationship between our clients and freelance personal trainers, and we are a company that develops a triune business model that allows for mutual growth.

The following principles have been firmly established within our organization since its inception. They are inherent to our commitment to sustainability:


- Clearly define roles and value all partners involved.

- Foster leadership among freelance personal trainers as independent professionals.

- Prioritize financial soundness by minimizing waste and investing in what truly matters.

"Thank you very much for choosing to visit First Class Trainers (FCT) among the many personal training gyms available. We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to work with each and every one of our clients and achieve common goals together.


With the recent health and fitness boom, we have witnessed the emergence of various fitness-related businesses such as personal gyms, yoga studios, and 24/7 gyms.


FCT was established as a completely new personal training gym with a focus on high expertise and a carefully selected team of trainers to help our clients achieve their goals in the shortest possible time.


Our team of personal trainers at FCT consists of highly specialized professionals, including renowned personal trainers, athletic trainers, athlete trainers, bodybuilding contest winners, licensed healthcare professionals, and private certifications. Personal training requires a firm understanding of the training objectives and constant monitoring of the training process. Furthermore, customer needs evolve over time. Our company's system allows us to quickly respond to various needs and provide exclusive personal trainers who can help our clients achieve their goals in the shortest time possible. We are the only company in Japan that offers this level of service (as of May 2023, with 230 contracted trainers).


At FCT, our core belief is that by providing the best service to our personal trainers, they can, in turn, provide the best personal training service to our clients. This trainer-first approach has been ingrained in our corporate culture since the beginning and has fostered a strong relationship of trust with our trainers, leading to an elevated level of hospitality for our clients. This three-tiered management style is what we take pride in as the "new form" of personal training.


Each interaction with our clients, along with the process of evaluating and improving our personal training services through success and failure, is invaluable to us at First Class Trainers. The accumulation of these experiences serves as our greatest resource. We pay attention to even the smallest details and continually strive to evolve towards providing the best service. We have a team of members who share these values. With a refined group of trainers coming together, we strongly believe that the reason for our success lies in this unity.


Our personal trainers understand and experience the immense joy that comes from sincerely engaging with each individual client and delivering personal training with passion. Each personal trainer at First Class Trainers is an entrepreneur. It is because they are entrepreneurs that they pour their passion into each session and approach each training session with a sense of responsibility for the clients who have entrusted them.


Furthermore, they continuously engage in self-improvement and learning to enhance their physical, coaching, and business skills. Knowing that there is "joy" beyond the "difficulties," they can share their own experiences with clients. Personal training's greatest advantage lies in the fact that even during challenging moments, we can support and enjoy the process together. Personal training leads to improvements in strength, cardiovascular function, and overall transformation towards a healthier body. It becomes a source of comfort and enrichment in life. We invite you to join us at FCT, set common goals, and make your dreams a reality!
