Gym Co.
Fitness Industry
NY

Hi,
I am writing from a company called Gym Co. We are a group of partners looking to open Poland’s first budget gym chain. We are looking for an investment of $181,000 to launch our first unit. You will make your initial investment back by the end of second year and can walk out with impressive returns by 4-6 years.

Between us partners we share extensive business management experience working for a FTSE 100 company and knowledge of sports science. We are passionate about the fitness industry and focused on providing real health and fitness benefits to our clients without the added frills that not many gym goers want. Which is why we want to launch our brand of budget gyms where people can come to stay fit without having to pay break the bank prices.

Our concept is unique and beats the competition on every level please visit our website http://gymrevolution.weebly.com/ to know more about our concept and to download our short presentation, under the "Investors" section.

As you might know, low cost gyms currently exist in countries like US, UK and Germany and are very profitable. But low cost gym chains do not exist in Poland. Combining the fact that there is gap in the market, with the forecasted growth in Polish & European fitness industry, we believe this to be a great opportunity to enter the Polish market with our brand of budget gyms.

We have detailed business plan, HR, Marketing plan and financial projections available should you be interested to further discuss this project. We have had great response from our target market and we are confident that this will be a profitable venture for ourselves and our investors.

We truly believe that this will be the next “Big Thing” in Polish fitness industry and you could play an important part in shaping the future of this industry. Please contact us to discuss the details of the investment and returns.

Kinds Regards

You should go with buying a well established business with several years or more of history. You could either go for a smaller business with all cash or finance. Or you can buy a larger business and use $100K or less as a down payment. You should buy a business that compliments your past experience. Or that you can quickly learn. Starting a franchise is risky. And some have told me its like buying a job.I guess it depends what you want out of your investment.

Our business is simple and unique. We actually sell content to people across the country. Our "subscribers" then use this content to publish their own free local paper (comparable to "Coffee News, Tidbits, etc.). But we are NOT a franchise, so you keep all profits and YOU call the shots... its YOUR paper. Our fees are extremely low, in fact a single ad sale can cover our subscription fee. Through our secure "subscribers only" website you can network with other subscribers in other areas and we can teach you how to succeed. We are small and simple but we could be worth you looking into... You don't pay us ANY money but your quarterly subscription (varies depending on the amount of content you want to receive) and you can cancel anytime without any further fees or obligations.

I have helped buyers find existing businesses and franchises for quite some time now. Your best option will depend a lot on you. I personally like to look at businesses with repeat customers that has a service or product that is in high demand. I like repeat customers because you can build off of that base to grow the business.

I am not sure what you mean by leverage. With existing businesses, you may be able to negotiate some better terms, like seller-financing, and keep more of your cash to expand the business or live off of. Franchises leverage comes from their systems and brand recognition. The prices are not very negotiable.

I can help you narrow down the results if you want to. My services are free to you and we can figure out which is the best route to take.

Hi Will,

I just finished my website that details how I made $2 million investing using the investment ideas I've come up with. They are based on some things Warren Buffett's started with some help from the hedge fund's spin on his idea.. I started a company, The Dean Group to work with people like you.

Take a look and hopefully we can talk.

Hi Will,

I work in franchise consulting but have found with the recent environment and the cost of franchising you can achieve much greater results on recession resistant smaller franchises and business opts and not have to drop $100K. Please let me know if you want further info.

There are pros and cons of both of these type of businesses.
First let us consider franchise. Who should buy franchise ? who doesn't know anything about running a business and also doesn't have confidense himself. So you join a franchise and they dictate your fate and daily routines.They train you by schooling in different aspects of business and when they are sure you can swim by yourself they leave you in the oceon.The only drawback is that they share in your income sometimes 50% of net othertimes 58% and they withdraw directly from your account and also you have to buy supplies from the prescribed provided by franchisor even if they are expensive.
whereas if you buy an independent business if you don't know how to run it you carry a risk of bringing it down pretty soon and loose your investment.But if you buy an established business seller will train you and if he is successfull follow his footprints and you will achieve success as well if you don't make drastic changes, Also you are your own boss and you can buy what you want and when you want. also you don't pay the price for somebody's name or expertise or schooling.
If you have 100k to invest don't buy a business exactly for 110k you can put 100k down where the seller can carry for finncing. This way seller will make sure that he makes you a successfull buyer.
Your success is his success, because his money is also at risk.
If you want to persue the later one respond me I have something in orange county ,California for you.
Good Luck!
