4 Ideas to Consider When Opening Up Your Gym Business

Business, Coaching

Today I am going to give you a hand with some key ideas and concepts you need to consider if you're thinking about opening up a gym for the first time. It is not a comprehensive list, just a few things I would look at if I was in your shoes.


Here are the first four points you should consider:


  • When you open up a business you are in a 100% commission only role. Can you generate enough money to cover all the costs?
  • What does the typical working week look like in the fitness industry? Are you comfortable with this?
  • You need to build your gym business from nothing into something good. Do you believe you can do this?
  • Have you explored local businesses in the fitness industry? What are the numbers you need? (For example, start up money.)
