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?
I agree with Ariadne and has some great points. Do your research of other similar businesses close to you (about 5miles radius should be sufficient) and see what they offer, rental fees, the number of trainers they have, etc. Advertising is not the tough part here, but rather your ability to offer a space that will make other trainers want to come there. It’s a good idea if it’s successful and could generate some good revenue to you. Some times just because you built it, doesn’t mean they will come.
