There are many reasons why you might want to sell your gym. Maybe you’re moving across the country and it’s just not going to be feasible for you to run your gym from there. Or maybe you’ve made enough money and decided to retire. Or maybe you found that your other fitness businesses, such as yoga or dance classes, were doing better in that area. So you’ve decided to stick to those and sell off the gym. Whatever the reason, it’s necessary to present your gym in the best way possible so that potential buyers will fall in love with it. And a gym broker can help you to do this.
If you want your gym to fetch a fair price (or even a price that’s above market value) you’re going to have to maintain it well. If you’ve always maintained your gym in good condition, you won’t have much to do at this point. But if you haven’t, it’s a good idea to go over your gym and check out the condition of all your equipment. Is it in good shape and functioning smoothly?
Do your treadmills or elliptical trainers need to be repaired? Are your weight machines in good shape? Are your free weights gleaming in a row or are they rusted, thus posing a health hazard? You may not want to bother with all these little things, given that you are selling your gym. But taking care of all these problems now will make sure that you get a good price for your gym. When the potential gym owner walks in, they want to see a gym in good working condition, not a fixer-upper.
In addition to functioning equipment, you also need to make sure that your gym looks overall presentable when a potential owner walks in. It doesn’t hurt to give it a coat of paint, get the windows cleaned and fix any leaks that might have occurred over the years.
General cleanliness is also important. It’s a good idea to get professional cleaners to come in and thoroughly clean your gym. Throw out gym mats that are ten years old and get new ones. Make sure your carpet or flooring are clean. And most importantly, make sure your gym is well-lit and has an active feel. This will help you make that sale.

You can’t execute your vision for your gym if you don’t have the financial resources needed to implement it: this is a simple truth for every gym owner across the industry. It takes capital to transform vision into reality, and in most cases, the bank across the street from you may not be your best option. In fact, given the strict nature of bank lending over the past decade, it may not be an option at all.
Most small- and medium-sized gyms and fitness centers struggle to secure funding needed for acquisition, growth or working capital needs. Gym owners are focused on the day-to-day challenges of running their club, and it can be very difficult and time-consuming to survey a vast array of lending options to identify one that can actually be secured.
While every vision will not be suitable for every lender, there is usually a lending partner somewhere that is the right fit for that vision. And it is the role of Fitness Management & Consulting to connect you with a lender or investor that will allow you to move forward and take action.
Fitness Management is not a direct lender but an advisor and advocate to the small- and medium-sized gym community:
• We will promote and guide you throughout the lending process to secure the financial strength and flexibility you need to achieve your goals.
• Our firm brings guidance, focus and financial leverage to our clients by leading them through a lending maze that can be very difficult and frustrating to navigate without direction.
• We operate under a strict code of ethics in developing and implementing what we feel is the best financing solution for each and every client.
• And most critically, through a national network of lenders, investors and other financial partners, Fitness Management helps to put cash into our clients’ hands so they can implement their visions and realize their dreams.
Fitness Management & Consulting can provide you with financial solutions that allow you the freedom to run your gym…the freedom to move forward, the freedom to grow and the freedom to thrive.
Now, go get funding for your gym!

Traditionally, a broker serves as a facilitator between buyer and seller, arranging transactions in exchange for a commission. If you’re starting a new gym or modifying your existing vendor list, you can benefit from the knowledge and expertise of gym brokers. You don’t have to face the daunting venture of starting a fitness center business alone.
If you’re thinking of becoming a health club or fitness center owner, your gym broker can locate prospective sellers. A qualified gym broker will have valuable insight on buying and leasing space, establishing contracts with companies that supply the latest in health club equipment, and securing package deals. Your broker can also assist in acquiring the basics — pool maintenance products, locker room supplies, health and beauty products, or vending machines.
Establishing or Expanding Your Vender List
If you are just starting out as a fitness center owner, you don’t need to spend more time establishing your vendor list than you have to. For instance, if you would like to open a café or juice bar in your business, your gym broker may negotiate with potential food service vendors for the best contract that meets your needs. Your broker may also know about janitorial services, computer maintenance companies, or commercial repair services that offer special rates to new gym owners.
Other Knowledge and Resources
A gym broker should have extensive expertise in the health and fitness industry, whether it be as a fitness center owner, a trainer, a consultant, or even a motivational speaker on health and fitness. The more experience your broker has, the better equipped he or she is to approach potential vendors and effectively close the transaction. In other words, a broker with vast experience wears many hats, offering consulting services in the areas of sales, marketing and/or training.
Remember, with a seasoned, resourceful gym broker, you have a partner that works on your behalf to save you time and increase your profits. Contact Us for questions about gym brokers, health club management, and any other questions.

Many factors will tell you when it is time:
Whatever the reason, you will need to plan an orderly transition to new ownership with less involvement on your part.
