How Much Is Your Fitness Club or Sports Business Worth?

2015 was a good year for selling a health or fitness related business , and 2016 looks like it is shaping up to be even better.  The fitness sector is getting strong interest from strategic buyers as well as private equity groups.  How much could you sell your fitness club or business for in 2016? Are there simple ways that you can increase its value?  Does it make sense to sell now or wait a few years?

I can’t imagine using anyone other than [Sports Club Advisors] to advise me.  To have someone with 20 years of hands-on experience managing clubs expertly advising me and managing the sale process is invaluable.  It gives you peace of mind that every move you are making is the right move.
