The Box Inside the Box
Think about it for a second, a gym is a collision of worlds. It’s a place where retail meets customer services, mixed in with some maintenance, a pinch of a restaurant and banking, and some salesmanship thrown in for good measure. And though most gym owners are truly renaissance men and women, not everybody is great at everything. As a result more and more owners are selling of some of these portions of the business. Selling boxes inside their box.

Should the low cost, high volume gym that’s opening soon worry you?
On Sunday I found myself at McDonald’s for lunch. (“Found myself” as in got in my car and drove there). After a glance at the menu, I decided on the Big Mac value meal…Super sized! But then I noticed it – the $1 menu. Years of being marketed to had taught me the ease of ordering by numbered combo. But now this, low cost, high volume food…well, it got me thinking about the growth of low cost, high volume gyms (LCHV). Are they a better deal? And should traditional gyms be concerned?
