Exit Strategies

  • If you were trying to exit the gym, look at customer or employee.
  • SBA loans are just a joke to get in like zero interest.

Profitability and Unit Economics

  • Most important piece is they're just not profitable enough.
  • The unit economics suck.
  • Proven out the multiple locations and they're as profitable as they can be before you scale further.
  • Why on god's green earth are you thinking about a fourth location when you're profiting 30,000 per year per location?
  • If you got rid of two of them and then focus your attention on one, you would make more money than you have from the three just straight up.

Focus on Profitability and Unit Economics

  • Locations must be corporate and the best in the gym industry for licensing or franchising to be considered.
  • Running on 30+ margins is crucial.
  • Small markets mean higher margins, but leads may not be consistent.
  • Word of mouth and retention are crucial in small markets.
  • Asset on the balance sheet can be leveraged for selling, licensing, or franchising.

Make it Super Profitable

  • Make it profitable for the pride of doing a good job, not just for the sake of doing x, y, and z.
  • Intention should be to build the best gym out there.
  • Shift in perspective is necessary.
