How Much Is Your Fitness Club or Sports Business Worth?

2016 was a good year for selling a health or fitness related business , and 2017 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 2017? Are there simple ways that you can increase its value?  Does it make sense to sell now or wait a few years?


Rich pulled this deal back from the dead many times. Thank you for all that you did. You generated a lot of interest in my company and helped me select the ideal buyer. You managed the process very well – I couldn’t have done it without you.

Working with Sports Club Advisors has been amazing. Rich and Jim understand the industry in a way that most M&A specialists don’t. They see both sides of the deal and their guidance on this project was invaluable.

Sports Club Advisors was with me every step of the way. I would not have acquired the DeKalb Tennis Center management contract without them.

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.
