Hi Adrienne. Congratulations! For a project as ‘big’ and as ‘important’ as opening a new health club, I would also consults with business professionals such as a good business attorney, CPA, and perhaps a business consultant. It may also be good to personally seek out and speak to other fitness professionals who have already gone down the road of opening their own facility. The lessons that they’ve learned will be invaluable to you in opening your own facility.
Again, congratulations and good luck!
