If you love sport and are a fit and healthy person who is looking to set up your own business, perhaps a gym franchise is right for you. One thing is for sure, there is a global fitness trend and by investing in a gym franchise, you can ride the wave to success and this can include you gaining certification as a personal trainer.
Lead by example
If you are planning to invest in Sydney’s leading gym franchise, why not take the courses that give you the qualifications to take fitness classes as an instructor. This allows you to head up the business and with the full support of the franchiser, your new gym will enjoy steady growth; you will make more money if you take classes and staff will respect you if you are certified to teach. If you are unable to gain certification, you will have to hire instructors and the process of hiring is controlled by the franchiser.
A success story
The mother company (franchiser) should already be successful, with at least 5 years of steady growth, which means their business model has a proven track record. The franchiser offers you a complete package; all you need is the desire to be successful, the mother company provides everything else and will support you in every possible way.
