Question asked by Adrienne Richardson 924 days ago

The article i just read is from 2003. How can I find out about funding opportunities for 2012-2013

I am in the process of putting together a business plan for a health club I would like to open in the NYC area. Once I am finished I would like to submit my proposal to as many organizations as possible.

Hi Adrienne. Congratulations! For a project as 'big' and as 'important' as opening a new health club, I would also consults with business professionals such as a good business attorney, CPA, and perhaps a business consultant. It may also be good to personally seek out and speak to other fitness professionals who have already gone down the road of opening their own facility. The lessons that they've learned will be invaluable to you in opening your own facility.

Again, congratulations and good luck!
