Yesterday, three separate gym owners called me to ask, “How do I sell my gym?”
Here’s my advice, in a nutshell:
1. Perform a valuation (find a template in our “How to Sell Your Gym” guide).
2. In most cases, it’s best to wait until your business is back to normal.
3. Make the gym as profitable as possible to maximize its value before you sell.
4. If you sell to a coach, don’t finance the loan for them.
The rest is in the “How to Sell Your Gym” guide.
I really wish this wasn’t happening, but in all three cases, I know the gym owner will be back in the industry eventually. As an entrepreneur, closing a business doesn’t mean failure; it just means, “On to the next!”
If you’re tempted to sell your gym but not 100 percent sure, then don’t sell. You’re almost on the other side of this thing, and you’re going to have a great rebound. Data from gym owners who have reopened looks very promising for growth.
