I am thinking of starting a business. I would provide the space for personal trainers to bring their clients and the space for group fitness instructors to bring their classes and equipment for both. The folks using the space would rent the space from me. This would alleviate much of the start up costs for a new business. But how do I find the PT’s and GFI’s in my area in which to market this business?
judging by the posts on this site I think there are a number of people who are offering this service, so it seems likely to be a good model.
Have you done a business plan?
I just think before looking for people to offer a space you need to see what sort of space you can get and what sort of rates you would have to charge.
It would seem like a good idea to look first at how many existing studios there are in your area, whether there are other spaces that rent to trainers and instructors and what they charge, what are the start up costs for you (rent, utilities, equipment, and so on), what spaces are available that offer parking and appropriate space, talking to your insurance company re: coverage and relationships to those who rent from you…. well there are a lot of things to think about.
Some people have posted here. There are also a lot of fitness job posting sites where people list space available (you could try indeed.com…. oh there are lots). You could look for facebook and linked in groups that are local (for example I belong to a facebook group for yoga in the east bay part of Rhode Island).
