From: Mike Pavlik “#1 Expert On Opening Independent Gyms & Fitness Businesses”
If you truly want to own a gym, read this entire page and take action right away. Here you'll find out how to open a gym easily and quickly. If I could show you how to cover all bases before starting your own gym, would you be interested in knowing how? If so, then please read on.
A gym is a good business. Let me tell you why.
The rate of obesity in our population is at an all time high. To be blunt, there are more fat people than ever and they are getting fatter everyday. I won't go into all the causes for obesity because this is an article about opening up a gym. Suffice it to say that it's a shame that our population has gotten this fat.
But, there is some good news from this obesity trend.
More doctors than ever are recommending exercise programs to their obese patients. This is in turn creating a strong demand of health clubs and gyms. This is why opening a gym at this time is such a good opportunity.
But here's the problem.
People wanting to open their own gyms have many barriers to overcome. First, there are many fitness franchise opportunities advertising that you'll become super rich from owning a gym. These "hyped-up" income claims are just false. While it's true that you can make a decent living from owning and running a gym, it's unlikely that you'll become a millionaire overnight. This is true because you're paying some corporate big wig a large initial franchise fee and monthly royalty fees. So, if you see franchise websites and advertisements claiming that you'll get rich quick from owning a gym.. Just don't believe it.
By the way, people are growing tired of the corporate fitness franchises that offer the same equipment in the same sterile environments. Members are looking for gyms that are unique and feel like home. They are looking for "real" gyms where they get personal attention in a friendly setting.
The second barrier are the rules and regulations when opening a gym. It can all be so confusing. Do you register with the federal, state or local government? How do you meet all of the building and fire codes. How do you pass your health inspections? It all seems so complicated and overwhelming.
One more thing. There is not much information available on how to open an independent gym. No one tells you exactly how to open your own gym. Clearly the franchisors aren't going to tell you until you pay them a big franchise fee. There are some muscle magazine publications that don't really tell you much about starting a gym (but, they do show a lot of great pictures of body builders.) There are a few gym business consultants that will help you, but they want an arm and a leg to speak with you.
Because of all of these barriers, so many people dreaming of owning their own gym just give up. They just don't start because it all seems so hard and they can't get any good information at reasonable price.
This doesn't have to happen to you. When you want your own gym, you can start with confidence and without anything stopping you.
Let me tell you how.
My name is Mike Pavlik. I wrote the Gym Guidebook to help new people entering the gym business get over these barriers. This is the #1 guidebook with step-by-step procedures for opening your own gym. It tells you exactly how to turn your desire to open a gym into reality. Because it tells you the whole story, this is the best product for discovering how to open your gym, where to find start-up money and how to overcome any fears you may have about owning a business. After you have started your gym using these step-by-step procedures, you will make a better life for yourself and your family.
Now let's get to specifics. When you get the Gym Guidebook, I recommend that you first read it from beginning to end. You’ll then have a complete understanding of my gym start up philosophy. Next, you start with the first step of my procedure. Then, you just go from step one to step two to step three and so on. And, before you know it, you’re opening your gym and welcoming your first member. This will be the best day of your life. This is the happy day when you’ll find out what it’s like to be a self-sufficient business person.
My Guidebook takes you by the hand through the often confusing world of gym startups. Each step is easy to follow and everything is in manageable chunks. With my Guidebook, you are never overwhelmed and you stay on track for a successful opening of your gym.
Since I know you want this information in a hurry, the Gym Guidebook comes to you as an e-book that you’ll download immediately after ordering. This means that you can start right away reading the manual and taking the first steps in your new gym. The e-book comes in standard PDF format and uses the Adobe Reader which you probably already have on your computer. When you don’t have it, you can easily download the Reader free from www.adobe.com. I send an instruction e-mail after ordering that tells you how to download the Adobe Reader free if you don't already have it.
