After installing 2 bathrooms, I would have room for a 400 sq ft. yoga space That will leave me enough space for about 600 sq ft for strength training area. Yoga and spinning is very popular in my area and I’m having a dilemma if I should just make a bigger space for a sports medicine studio or have both a yoga room and a small area (about 600sq ft) for personal training. I plan to have several independent trainers in the 600 sq ft space. Your feedback is much appreciated. Thanks.
Coming back to this thread, I have to say that I really like Ariadne’s response.
It’s often best to design a studio that fits with your own core competencies, unless you have renters already contracted that you know will come through. One of the studios I used to rent, the studio owner spent thousands of dollars building out a soundproofed room for massage therapy. Then her friend, the massage therapist, backed out. For various reasons, she couldn’t find anyone else to rent the space, so it never got used. Meanwhile, her classes and mine were squished into a smaller space to make room for the unused massage room.
So, if and when I build out my own studio, it will first and foremost cater to my needs and what I’m best able to sell.
