If you are looking for a new business opportunity, you are not alone. Entrepreneurship is on the rise and more and more people are looking for opportunities that can take them out of that 9 to 5 rat race that some are just not cut out for. Although, working for the man could have some benefits in terms of stability and 401K but as many realize in later years, life is short and you have to love what you do. As, internet entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuck alludes to, if you are living your life every day looking forward to the weekend or your next vacation, there is something broken. As a rising fitness franchise, we know that there is more to life than clocking in and waiting for your paycheck. Here are some of the reasons you should consider owning a health club / fitness franchise.

  1. You are changing people’s lives

How many jobs can you say have a true impact on the well being of others? That is one of the beautiful things about owning a health club. You are in essence, helping people improve, get healthier, and reach their fitness goals. There are so many people out there that are overweight or have health concerns, and need help. Our franchise model is different than the big box gyms because we believe in personalized attention and a relationship with our members. If you were to ask any of our members what they love most about the Zoo Health Club, they would probably tell you “They actually care.”

  1. Day-to-Day environment

There is nothing thrilling about being in an office behind a cubicle all day. Or being in a fast paced restaurant or behind a kitchen where it is incredibly stressful and every minute feels like an hour. A gym atmosphere is one where people network, socialize, while they do something that is vital to their health and well being. The day-to-day life of a franchise owner can very satisfying and every day is a new adventure.

  1. Work Life Balance

Business owners will tell you, having your own company can mean very long hours, especially if you work in retail. A gym in a way, runs itself. That is assuming of course, you have the right systems and people in place. But some of the feedback that we have heard from our franchisees is that they be home more and have the ability to take that vacation that they normally could not take. For those with children, how wonderful is it to be able to be home early to spend time with them.

  1. Great Revenue Potential

You may not realize, but a health club can be very profitable, if done right. If you do the mental math, you would probably multiply membership fees by an estimate of the number of members and think, “that’s not that profitable”. But the reality is that gyms have multiple revenue streams that when added up can really bring you some nice returns. Think of personal training fees, workout classes, kids club, juice bar, amenities, and more. As far as revenue potential goes, you should definitely consider a health club franchise.

  1. The Zoo Gym Franchise Support Model

Last but not least, one of the biggest benefits of owning a Zoo Health Club franchise, is the support you receive as a franchisee. You need not know very much about the health club industry or even starting a business. All you need is to be excited and passionate about your club and we will provide you the blueprint for success.
