Fitness Franchise Business

The fitness franchise business is one that can represent various opportunities on a personal and professional level. When you think of a business, you think of money and profit. But there is also an aspect of personal growth and development that you can gain from working in an industry where the sole purpose is to help people better themselves. As one of the up and coming fitness franchises out there, we at Zoo Health Club, have put together what we consider to be the ins and outs of owning a fitness franchise. Basically, if you have ever considered owning a gym or health club, here are some things you should know and expect.


Many people that think about owning a fitness center, gym, or health club, usually like to workout and are members at some gym. They think, how cool would it be to own one of these. Not to mislead the title of this section, but experience is extremely important in this industry. Now, we are not saying that it cannot be done. What we are saying is that by the time you choose a location, find the equipment and how to pay for it, and figure out everything else such as software, contracts, proper layout, marketing, etc…., you may have spent significantly more than if you would have had some experience. For this reason franchising has become so popular. The formula for success is provided to you with all its secret ingredients and recipes, if you get what we are saying. There are so many things that you simply miss out on because of lack experience. The connections with the best equipment manufacturers, finance and leasing companies, the experience negotiating the space, such as getting TI money (tenant improvement money) so that the landlord pays for a large portion of the build-out, are just a few of the advantages of purchasing a franchise. So, when you go the franchise route, No experience is necessary, just passion and enthusiasm.


Something you should also know about owning a fitness franchise such as the Zoo Health Club, is that unlike other businesses, you can really have a work life balance that awards you time to actually enjoy your life outside of work. We have heard from our franchisees that previously worked in different industries, that since owning their Zoo franchise, they have been able to actually take a long family vacation, be home early enough to spend time with the kids, or work on other business ventures simultaneously. A gym can run like a well oiled machine if done right, and when this happens you do not have to be there every second of every day. This is what we strive for with all our franchisees.


It’s funny but when you ask the average Joe how profitable a health club is, some would say that not so much. I mean multiply the number of people that show up by $20 or $30 and subtract the incredibly high overhead, and they are sure there is not much more left. But let me tell you, the beauty of owning a fitness franchise is that it is like owning multiple businesses or rolled into one. Good fitness franchises, and no one does this better than the Zoo Health Club, are able to create multiple revenue streams such as: personal training revenue, apparel/clothing revenue, juice bar revenue, child care revenue, classes revenue, amenities revenue, and more. We treat each one like a separate business and have a strategy for each one. This is what separates us from other franchises. When it comes to creating multiple revenue sources while keeping your overhead low, we are the best!
