From Boxing Personal Training To Boxing Gym Ownership

By May 28, 2022Franchise

Boxing personal training is trending as there are millions of people around the world who enjoy boxing as a sport and as a way to keep their bodies in shape. In addition to its obvious benefits, such as burning fat and building lean muscle mass, boxing also offers numerous secondary benefits. For instance, it is an excellent way to build hand-eye coordination, increase your balance, and improve your concentration under pressure, and boxing personal training can optimize those results. With that said, there are many personal trainers who would love to become boxing gym owners so they can open their own enterprise. While starting your own business isn’t easy under any circumstances, becoming a boxing gym owner requires special preparation and insight into different kinds of risks. Before you take the plunge into becoming a boxing gym owner here are some things you need to keep in mind:

Know Your Audience and Their Needs: use your boxing personal training experience

One of the most important things to keep in mind when considering opening a boxing gym is your audience. You obviously should be familiar with the sport to some extent, but since you want to cater to people who want to learn boxing, not necessarily compete in boxing, you need to know their needs as well. What do these people want from a boxing gym? What are their pain points? How can boxing help them? If you can’t answer these questions, you won’t have a successful business.

As a Spartans Boxing Club owner, you will receive complete support and guidance on the audiences that are targeted by Spartans Boxing Clubs and how to target them, as the franchisor we have a deep knowledge of the market based on thorough market research and of course the established years of experience. In other words, you will be in good hands. 

Transitioning from boxing personal training to gym ownership, Be Ready to Sacrifice Everything:

One of the sacrifices you will need to make as a boxing personal trainer becoming a gym owner is your privacy. In a world where everyone is a self-promoter, this may seem out of place, but trust me, you will need to let your audience know that you are open for business by letting people know your gym exists. Keep in mind that you will have to sacrifice time as well. Boxing gyms are open at late hours and you will need to be prepared to work long hours when you first open. You may even need to close for a few days at a time to get renovations done or make sure everything is in working order. Stay on top of your finances, too, so you can make sure you are meeting your bills every month. And since you won’t receive income from your clients until you have a contract, be sure to have a plan in place to pay your bills until then.

With Spartans Boxing Club, we have established systems for running the gym, all these data and processes will be provided to you with training so you can manage your gym successfully.

Consider Your Gym’s Location

What is the ideal location for your boxing gym? Consider traffic patterns, how accessible it is for your clients, nearby amenities, and parking availability. You want to make it as easy as possible for people to get to your boxing gym. This means you shouldn’t choose a location that people will have to struggle to get to. It should be a place that people are already driving past and will make a mental note of, “Oh, I can walk there.” Finding the right location for your gym can be a challenge, but it is an important factor in its success. Ideally, your boxing gym should be near where people live. If your gym is in an area where not a lot of people live, you’ll have a harder time meeting your potential clientele.

Ask for Recommendations and References

When you choose your contractor, builder, and service providers, be sure to ask for recommendations and references. This is how you will get the best people for your boxing gym. If someone doesn’t have any recommendations or references, it’s probably because they don’t work well and aren’t reliable. While you shouldn’t close any doors because someone doesn’t have references, you should take it into consideration. If someone has been in business for a long time, but they don’t have any recommendations, that isn’t a good sign. While that doesn’t mean they are going to do a bad job for you, it does mean they haven’t done a good job for anyone else, either.

Since Spartans Boxing Club is an established name in the boxing gyms market, it is already reliable and attracts a multitude of customers, moving from boxing personal training to Spartans Boxing Club owner you won’t need to make effort on building a reputation.

Bring in the Right Equipment:

Let’s face it, boxing gyms are all about the equipment. This can be something as simple as a heavy bag or something as complex as an octagon. When you are bringing in your equipment, make sure it is good quality, not some used equipment that is on its last legs. You want all your equipment to be safe and reliable. You also want it to be aesthetically pleasing to your clients. Now, this doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune, but you do want to make sure that your equipment looks good and meets the needs of your clients.

Spartans Boxing Clubs Provides Spartans Boxing Club owners gym equipment sourced at beneficial costs and merchandise sourced also at beneficial costs.

Estimate What It Will Cost to Renovate

It goes without saying that renovating an old boxing gym and building new ones from scratch isn’t cheap. Depending on your budget, you will have to decide how much you want your boxing gym to look like a penthouse or like an old boxing gym. The latter can be more cost-effective, but the former is certainly more luxurious and comfortable. Whatever you decide, be sure to estimate what it will cost you to renovate your boxing gym before it is built so you can have a better idea of how much money you will have leftover.
