I just want to warn potential gym owners about these so-called promotion companies who over-promise and under-deliver, often times causing a gym to go out of business. I too own a couple of health clubs and i know how difficult it is to break even, much less profit. But i also know how rewarding it is to help so many members at your club. I would be more than happy to help answer any questions you have about your gym or your future gym. Best of luck to everyone! Sincerely, curtis Mock reply reply with" top main lobby 132.

"Beware of shady marketing companies" Posted by curtis on 10:20:09 7/14/2006 i know a lot of you are looking for help with your new/existing health club. I urge everyone to be careful if you consider one of the "promotion-style" companies in our industry. If you already have a club, you know who i'm talking about. You probably receive a postcard from them once a week. If you are considering opening a gym, please know that you will be giving up a sizeable percentage of your profits to these shark-like companies. I am a little biased as i own a consulting/marketing company for the gym industry, but nothing bothers me more than hearing how these companies and their empty promises are destroying gyms. Did you know that 8 out of every 10 bulimia new gyms fail? That's not to say you shouldn't start one, but it is to warn you that you already have enough stacked against you. I am not here to promote my marketing business. We are already too busy.

"Fitness Center" Posted by dan Marx on 19:22:09 4/14/2004 I have a cousin who owns her own gym more along the lines of a curves only its coed. I also have another friend who owns his own Martial Arts Studio. I would recommend doing some market research in the area you are planning on doing this. See what the demand is like and put the question about the dogs in your research and see what the response is like. Having a simple survey printed up and then asking people to fill it out around your city/town shouldn't be too hard.
I was doing some research when I came across this site and now I'm hooked. There appears to be a ton of valuable advice offered on this site and I was just wondering if anyone has ever owned/or considered starting a gym? This is something I feel that I would really enjoy as well as be sucessful at once i get the ball rolling. I am a little hesitant due to the number of large scale gyms (chains such as Worlds Gym, bally's etc) opening. I am also and animal lover and i am trying to formulate a business plan that not only involves a fitness center/gym, but also allows members database to bring their dogs to an attached section of the gym where there would be obstacle courses, agility etc. I know this may sound odd, but I really think it could work. Overall, i would really like to start a gym that caters to both people and their dogs. There would be an additional "membership" for the dog and people could belong to the gym without a pet or their pet could belong without them being a member. Any advice/ constructive criticism would be appreciated.
