My Name is Bill Bassett and I am the owner/founder of The Compound. We are the world’s first gym, that focuses exclusively on youth athletes. I am an ISSA Certified Youth Fitness Trainer and the head trainer at the Original Compound in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.
I am a middle school STEM teacher with a Masters Degree in Education, Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and an associates degree in computer science. I have extensive experience coaching and training youth athletes for over 15 years. I am the Head Wrestling Coach at Ranger Pride Wrestling and an assistant coach at Young Guns Wrestling club & Team Pennsylvania. I am currently the strength and conditioning coach for many of the top wrestlers in the country. Our Compound has produced many state champions and home of current USA Wrestling National Champions. I work with youth athletes and all the way through College NCAA National Champions.
At The Compound, we feel our designed workout plans are second to none. We developed workouts to build the strongest, most explosive and mentally toughest athlete. We strive to get each athlete to their maximum athletic potential. Strength is the difference in being Good or being Great!
The Compound will focus on developing strength, speed and athleticism. We will use a variety of Training Styles and each workout will be different. The workouts will be a combination of Cross-fit, Plyometrics, Olympic Lifts, Speed/Agility, footwork drills and core. The overall goals is to develop bigger, faster, stronger athletes.
There will not be a percentage of yearly income like most other franchises. **There will be an annual royalty fee on the anniversary date. This fee will be 7K which will equal less than 5% at most locations. This will make it easier everyone.
We will run a gear order quarterly and have order forms available for each location. I will allow each owner the opportunity to up charge and make some money per item. I recommend having gear on hand for athletes and parents to purchase. There will be many different athletes coming through the door and they will all want to wear our Logo. Or, If you do a Gear Sale, we would get $2 per item. $500 Gear Royalty fee for the year.
Your Compound will be protected against another Compound being opened too close. (Example if someone puts a Compound in Altoona, I won’t allow another one to be established within the same area or city limits). Each location will be looked at differently, we will take in Consideration the population of the urban areas and mileage for the rural areas. You are investing and coming aboard something special & you will be extremely happy you did. The Compound will be in every city across the country, helping all athletes in every sport. Every time another Compound opens, our brands increases and our Compound family gets larger. Half of the Franchise fee down holds your spot(4K). It gives you access to the Logo for the advertising aspect. You want to build excitement in your area. Now is the time to open one, as the word spreads and more Compounds open, the demand will greatly increase. I am sure the franchise costs will increase for those coming on board in the future.
-Speed & Agility
-Bodybuilding, physique, figure and bikini contest preparation

We are looking for motivated people interested in providing a safe, intense workout environment geared towards youth athletes. With a low cost franchising structure locations are opening weekly. This is an amazing opportunity to change your life, your families lives, and all the young dedicated athletes in your area.
The way it works, is potential owners view all the necessary requirements and see what it would take to open a Compound. Then After filling out a questionnaire, a sales rep will contact them to answer all their questions, provide them with a plan to get started and work with them through the entire opening process.
The Compound is the first gym specializing in youth performance and the fastest growing youth functional strength gym in America. Athletes come to the Compound, from hours away, to maximize their athletic potential. The proven workouts circuit based, led by instructors focusing on proper technique and making sure the athletes are getting the most out of their workouts. We focus on developing faster, stronger, mentally tougher athletes in all sports. We have male and female athletes of all ages and from all sports at the Compound. It’s time to give your young, dedicated athlete the edge over their competition.

This is something I strongly believe in and know that it makes a huge impact on athletes lives. The constant reminder, positive message or just a quick talk about character could be more important than the actual strength workout.
I honestly think first impressions is everything with a gym. I really took my time getting my space ready. I brought a professional painter and had a company design custom logo/lettering stickers. I do recommend you spending some time and money in this area. The color of the gym will be Electric Lime (SW6921), Grey (SW7076), your choice of Black and White. We have a wrestling mat in our gym for the agilities and warmups. This is optional, but strongly recommended. Our goal is to build the best athletes we can and the agilities/gymnastics is a huge part of that. I would have a refrigerator or water cooler and have water available. I recommend having a pro-shop with Compound gear and Compound Lab Supplements.. New athletes and parents are very eager to purchase Compound gear and supplements when they sign up. This will also be available when you have walk-in athletes. The more gear and supplements purchased the better, because it spreads the logo in your area. I honestly feel word of mouth and logo recognition is the strongest source of advertising.
At each location, the Compound Labs supplements will be offered. Each location will have a chance to make money on their sales of the supplements. I recommend explaining the importance of why athletes use and should incorporate supplements into their workouts and life.
We love to get outside and workout. The athletes really enjoy summer time, outside workouts.
Summer time is the perfect time to change things up a little. Especially, if you feel the the workouts seem stale or the group just needs something different to fire them up. Now that doesn’t mean you forget about the regular Compound strength program. Occasionally add one of these workouts for something outside and it will motivate the athletes tremendously. Here are some amazing summer workouts we do.
