If starting a successful fitness studio is your goal, you really have 2 primary options. You can start one from scratch, or you can buy a franchise. Which option is best for you? It Depends.
People who want a proven track record, who want to be part of a team that is providing guidance, and want to short cut learning lots of the processes....buy franchises. People with a strong personal vision that are willing to take on multiple projects from scratch....go it alone. Either approach has risks, either can be successful. We'll explore issues related to both throughout this blog.
