If you’re an existing boxing coach eager to take your career to the next level, you’ve likely considered diving into the boxing gym franchise business. Concerned whether or not this is a suitable fit for your resume, you might hesitate to pursue the opportunity, reluctant that leaving your career as a coach might not be the safest, most practical next step…
However, what if we told you that transitioning from a successful boxing coach to a boxing gym franchise owner is the most natural next step that you could make?!
While some boxing coaches might be satisfied with continuing with their coaching career, getting enough joy out of serving their existing customer base, others might feel the need to make a greater impact on a larger scale.
If this sounds like you, transitioning from coach to franchise owner might just be exactly what you’re looking for!
Coach to Boxing Gym Franchise Owner; The Perfect Transition
Transitioning from one career to another is always a stressful and uncertain time in someone’s life. This is because of the lack of guarantee that the next career path will work out…
Take professional athletes, for example. When most of them are finished with their competitive career, they seek to pursue other business-related avenues such as opening up a gym or becoming a coach.
While this certainly works out for some, there are several stories of failure, but why? While there are several potential reasons for failure to transition from one career to the next, it’s likely, in part, a result of it being a poor fit. In other words, just because someone is an incredible athlete doesn’t always mean they’ll be just as good of a coach.
On the contrary, if you’ve already proven yourself as a successful coach, compiling a sizeable clientele that only seems to continue growing, there are characteristics involved in doing so that translate naturally to other related careers. On such transition is the ‘coach to franchise owner’ career shift…
Again, while it might not always be a suitable fit, in most circumstances, it is. In what follows, we seek to explain why…
Five (5) Reasons Why Becoming a Boxing Gym Franchise Owner is a Natural Step from Being a Boxing Coach:
- You Have a Passion for boxing
- You’re an Ambassador for the Sport of boxing
- You Developed a Business-Sense as a boxing Coach
- You Understand Sales and Promotion
- You Have an Existing and Growing Customer Base
You Have a Passion for Boxing
In order to remain interested and eager to grow and operate a business, let alone a franchise, you need to first have a passion for what you’re doing; otherwise, where does the drive and ambition come from?
When running a boxing franchise, in particular, a business mind isn’t enough. Instead, a coupling of business and passion is what’s required for long-term success.
You’re an Ambassador for the Sport of boxing
When applying to become a franchisee of a boxing club or any type of fitness facility or franchise for that matter, there is going to be a vetting process to see whether or not you’re a good fit for the role.
As a former boxing coach, you’ll likely be perceived as the perfect fit, not only because you have a passion for the sport but because of your learned business skills as a coach.
You Developed a Business-Sense as a Coach
Speaking of, being a boxing coach doesn’t just require an intimate understanding of the sport and its demands. Instead, it involves interpersonal skills, time management skills, people skills, and marketing skills in order to successfully grow your clientele and reputation, thus your business.
These learned skills as a business coach will have an incredible carryover effect as a boxing gym franchise owner , making it an all but inevitable and natural next step.
You Understand Sales and Promotion
One of the most important skills that you’ve learned as a boxing coach is a necessity for promotion; i.e. how you’ve built your portfolio of clientele. While some may perceive the ability to attract clientele as a coach to be related to your depth of knowledge of the sport, what it truly comes down to is your ability to promote and sell yourself.
As suggested in the prior point, the ability to sell, market, and promote will have a tremendous carryover effect as a boxing gym franchise owner.
You Have an Existing and Growing Customer Base
Last but certainly not least, you wouldn’t have been able to sustain a career as a boxing coach without having an existing sizeable customer base. When being vetted as a potential franchisee by the franchisor, having an existing and potentially growing customer base will be music to their ears.
At the end of the day, running a franchise is a business. The more clientele that you have the ability to attract, the more marginal profits that you and the franchise will take home; it’s a win-win situation for all parties.
