I am responding to give you a bit of unsolicited (and I apologize if it is unwelcome) advice. Make the conditions of working with clients at your space clearly better than it would be for the trainers to open their own space. It will reap big rewards for you, for the trainers and the clients. Otherwise you will constantly be needing to find more trainers to come fill the spots of your past trainers who leave to start their own gym. You may be able to make better money in the short term, but it will be a feast or famine business model. If you treat new trainers better than anyone else in Orlando (I lived there in the late 80s and early 90s), you will be able to open up a new gym in another part of town every couple of years. That market is limitless and a lot of gyms are not seeing the big picture. The trainers you make part of your family will be your gym managers as you open more facilities. Think big, sir. Really big!
