I currently do mostly in-home training, but I’m considering getting my own small location (1,000 ish sf) to set up a micro-gym for 1 on 1 and small group training. I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with setting up a business of this type. Currently I’m looking around for a micro-warehouse type industrial space, to minimize rent, preferably with a garage door, to allow for easy movement of equipment outdoors in the warmer seasons, but there seems to be a lack of easy accessibility to listings of that sort on-line. So my main questions are how did you go about finding your space, and was there any unforeseen difficulties with starting up. I have a good concept of how my marketing and cash flow will look, but any feedback would be appreciated.
I saw that you also do in-home training. Have you thought about just keep doing the in-home training and keep all the revenue for yourself? Also, you won’t have to worry about all of the legal and overhead issues that come with renting a space. Plus, you will be able to train clients at multiple locations, instead of trying to bring people to just one location.
