When is it Time to Sell Your Health Club or Gym?
Owners of Health Clubs all reach a point in the history of their enterprise when it is time to “hang it up.”
Many factors will tell you when it is time:
- Gym Owner’s “burn out” Owner’s or key employee’s health problems
- Business relocation or rerouting of expressways
- Lease expires and you do not want to renew for another term
- Changing technology Get estate in order
- Not interested in investing long-term capital
- Children do not want to enter family gym business
- Largest accounts in financial difficulty
- Bank unwilling to renew credit lines for gym financing
- Supplier and gym vendor problems
- Staff problems
- Gym member’s habits changing
- Seeks retirement
- Wants to cash out and go fishing
Whatever the reason, you will need to plan an orderly transition to new ownership with less involvement on your part.
