Whatsnext, thank you for your message. I like your ideas about situating the business near a medical complex. As I stated I would like to have a fitness facility of about 2000 square feet, and have physical therapy and massage therapy tenants in the gym (in their own rooms of course), so that it`s more like a wellness type center than a typical gym.
What is your feeling on how best to market this facility? I have already written a number of articles (available in print and on my website), have contacted local media outlets to make myself available as an expert (for quotes on health and fitness issues, to write articles as necessary, etc.), have written my existing client network to help refer clients, and am in the process of setting up public speaking engagements with local clubs and organizations. Other than typical business cards and such do you have any other ideas that would help market this business and drive up my client base?
Also I wonder what other advice you have for a first time wellness facility owner? I have been in the field of fitness for a long time but have never owned a "brick and stone" business. Anything you can offer will help.
I`m in Riverside only 20 Min away from. If you need help with branding, marketing and graphics maybe we can meet. I`m also starting my own business and are exited to grow.
