I’m looking to acquire a 2,000 square foot personal training studio. 1000 square feet is on the first level and 1,000 square feet is on the second level. I just need some help on like what to have?
i.e. I know I need to have my own office, a bathroom (already included in the space) now should I get a separate room for changing? Any other specialty space you would recommend or you think would be good to have? I was thinking of having a changing room, but also make it the fitness assessment room.
99.9% of my clients normally come already change. So I was thinking about having the changing room/fitness assessment room.
I have over 30 clients, over 70% of them been with me for over 3 years. so I know nearly all 30 clients would follow me to the end of the earth. So super fancy I don’t think is needed. It’s more the quality of service and the results people get that brings them back.
I agree with Karin that a curtained or closed-off storage space might be good. A lovely no-frills studio that I visited last week had some HUGE storage shelves – about 3 feet deep and 12 feet wide, next to an open area for tall items the same depth and maybe 8 feet wide – all hidden by a simple but attractive curtain. They had all sorts of equipment for classes, cleaning materials, extra flooring, etc. behind the curtain.
At least a few full-length mirrors so clients can see their own form
A bar hanging 12-18 inches from the wall for pull-ups, CrossCore, TRX and other suspended activities. Better yet, a slat wall, if you attach a lot of bands etc. at varying heights.
