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?
To All: I wanted to “comment” to each of your answers, but the CAPTCHA system won’t allow me to do so and IDEA customer service staff is out until January 5. Therefore, a group response:
Thank you to all of you for taking the time to respond!
I have looked briefly into space costs and Harris is right, that rental space is $$$ in Madison. I have talked with some other personal trainer friends to get their insight on this idea and I have attended some “starting a small business classes”, so have a feel for other start up costs that I would incur.
I had planned on installing mirrors and had entertained the idea of opening up the space to dance groups, since I’ve heard they are hard to come by in this area.
Before I invested much more time and effort on this idea, I wanted to get a sense for how difficult it would be to get PT’s and GFI’s into the space.
Thanks again to each of you for the thoughtful, insightful comments and suggestions! They have truly been beneficial.
