A Gallup poll in 2015 found that exercise habits in Americans were at their highest in seven years.

In this blog post we'll be discussing how to calculate operating costs associated with opening a gym or fitness center and how Buy and Sell Fitness can help you save up to 70% on fitness equipment purchases.
To calculate the operating costs associated with opening a gym, create a business plan. This will help you think about the future of your business with a consistent vision, clearly defining what your business goals are and how you will achieve them. Remember, it is important to make sure your business fits your budget.
Here are a few common expenses you should think about: location, business insurance, tenant improvements, employee salaries, electricity, permits and miscellaneous office supplies. You should also ask yourself, what kind of services will my gym or fitness center provide?
Determining a location is important. After you find an area that meets your budget needs, whether you buy or lease, consider that there is a good chance you will have to make improvements to that space. Whether its rubber flooring, installing showers or a steam room make sure to factor these expenses into your business plan.
