Well I am a sports trainer who has a modest little training space (1200sqft of useable space) and am now going to make the jump after doubling in size every month since opening in January (we are bursting at the seams). I am going to go big time or die trying. 10,000sq ft. facility, aturf section a sand pit for plyos, big tires to flip, 40 metre sprint track and a lifting section with rel machines and real lifting platforms, racks etc. Some of the questions I have are:
1. Where do I get software?
2. Where can I get those key tag things made?
3. How do I get the backing to do this other than just a straight bank business loan?
I am in the middle of california and pretty much for anyone who could answer a few of my questions I will drive to you and would buy you dinner or lunch at least if you want and if you know your stuff and want I will pay you for your time.
You guys are shameless.
ATOMIC, I have the exact same thing, a 10K functional training gym that specializes in athletes and fighters. PM me for more info but I'll give you/everyone some basics now.
for POS software and membership accounting. Great company. You can also try ASF.
2) ABC will do it for you
3) This is where it gets tricky. We were mostly privately funded (your current client base can be a great source of loan money) but we also had an SBA loan.
