    Ideally, you want to have your domain and business names be the same. Since you haven't picked a business name yet, do a domain name search and see if any of your business name ideas are available as domain names.

    A lot of people say they want catchy business names. I don't know exactly what you mean by "catchy", but most people have a tendency to mean play on words type names, or something close to it. I would advise against staying away from that sort of name. You need to pick something that makes a powerful statement. Especially because people can pick one of a bunch of places to take fitness classes.

    Before you can pick a name, or we can help you out, you need to tell us more about your business. What is your business about, what does it stand for, who are your customers, that sort of stuff.

    Either you're very picky, or you're working very slowly. Just kidding. It's not easy to divorce yourself from the emotions associated with naming your own business.

    What you want to focus on is not what you like - or don't - but what will work best for your potential customers. Think of it in those terms and some of the emotionalism disappears.

    Consider, too, a name in combination with a tagline, something that adds emphasis to or better describes the type of services you'll be offering.

    That said, let me put on my creative thinking cap...

    "Group Fitness Trainers, Inc." appears to describe what you offer, particularly when combined with an appropriate tagline. Your URL could be either GroupFitness.com or FitnessTrainers.com. I'm sure Fitness.com is long gone by now.

    Oh, and did you notice the "Inc."? It could also be "Corp." or "LLC," but you will have to incorporate. Don't take my word for it. Ask an attorney who specializes in small businesses.

    For that tagline, what about "Choose From X Groups." Of "Your Choice Of X Groups." Those allow you to change that number as you add or delete certain courses.

    None of this may seem "catchy," but from the standpoint of appealing to potential customers it makes very good sense. Hope that helps.

    FitnessGroup.com

    FitnessGregarians.com

    FitnessFellows.com

    FitnessAssociates.com

    Anyhow, check for the availability of any of these domain names.

    fitgroup
    groupfit
    fitnesstogether
    fit-together
    fitness squad
    team fitness

    what others are saying about choosing a company name is valid - however these days I think you need to see what domain names are available and decided on one to purchase before registering a legal business name. If you do things the "old" way, you just might find that you can't get the best-suited domain.

    Cheers
