I am moving to another city and am losing all my clients at my current gym. I was thinking about starting my own “garage gym” and training clients at my home. I am ACE certified and hold 1 million in liability insurance. Is there anything else I would need to start training clients other than some equipment and marketing material to start accruing clientele?
Hi Victoria. I agree. You need to check the zoning laws in your new jurisdiction. I have an in-home studio and needed to check the zoning laws as well as get approved to have the studio in my home from the County. Some of the zoning laws can get very specific (for example as to the number of people you can train at a time or even the maximum that you can train in a day, in order to still be consider a “home business,” so be sure to read the requirements carefully.
I hope that this helps and GOOD LUCK with your new business venture!
