If you are looking to open a gym, health club or studio, you are in the right place.
GYMCRAFTERS is a member’s only full service gym development and consulting company, created for people just like you.
The fitness industry is booming. Annual reports from IHRSA (International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association) put the revenue for the fitness industry over $50 billion, and we want to help you be a part of that.
Since 2009, GYMCRAFTERS has been helping people open their own gym or health club. Over the last 5 years, many of our members have realized their dream of gym ownership, at a cost that was 40 to 60% less than what they would have paid otherwise.
There are several paths available to owning your own gym:
Franchising, Licensing, or Creating Your Own Brand!
Franchising: Anytime Fitness, Snap Fitness
- Branding- someone has invested lots of money to brand their name so when you open people will know who you are.
- Turn Key model- all the pieces are there and the method has been tested out over time and repetition.
- Cost- $25-$100k down, just to get in the door, plus $400-$1500 per month in royalties on your memberships.
- Lack of flexibility -strict guidelines on how to set up and run your facility, limit your personal input into your business. You must follow their model and timetables, and use their vendors.
- Penalties- or loss of franchise should you break the rules and not follow the model as prescribed.
Licensing: Gold’s Gym, RetroFit
- Less expensive than franchises.
- Less restrictive than franchises.
- Cost- There are licensing fees for the name, logo, and online presence, and royalties to be paid on members.
- Logos- You are required to use and change their logos as they do.
- Less continuity of service, and a badly run licensed club could potentially impact you.
