I am new here but do any of you have tips/advice on how to approach a martial arts school, rec center, or other ‘space provider’ in regards to starting a fitness bootcamp? I am looking to do something this summer and ongoing. I am in Chicagoland area and I personally prefer indoors. Outdoors would be ok, but with our park districts there are rules against just rolling up and setting up shop. Working on starting my business!!
I would start by looking at places that are within your radius of work options.
Yes, go to Churches, Rec Centers, Senior Centers, Dance Studios, Fellowship Halls, Drama Studios, Gyms, High Schools, Middle Schools to name a few:
Look on Craigs list for available space to rent, as you know for a bootcamp you don’t “need” mirrors or alot of equipment. Check out other bootcamps in town and also I would suggest getting a business license after filing a fictitious business name to make sure nobody else has your name and alos make sure you have proper liability insurance and current CPR/AED Certifications.
You can also fill in your Fitness Connect Page with your classes and possibly generate business!
