A Proven Process for Selling a Fitness Club or Business.

Selling a fitness club or sports business can be complex, time consuming and stressful. Over the last 20 years Sports Club Advisors has developed a process that creates a safe and secure environment which benefits all parties.

The first difference is the time and effort we invest in preparing a client’s fitness club or business before we take it to market.  This allows us to present our clients in the best possible light, and to identify any potential problems so we can address them head on.

We also are very careful to protect the privacy of both sides by have buyers sign nondisclosure agreements, using a secure online data room and only releasing confidential information in stages.

To learn more about our proven sales process, please contact us.

We’re here to help you achieve your goals.

Whether you are looking to sell your fitness club or sports business now, or a few years from now, we would like to hear from you.  We would be happy to build a relationship with you and help you explore your options.  In our experience, the most successful sales are planned well in advance to ensure that you maximize the value you receive for your fitness club or business.

To assist you in your planning we would be happy to prepare a free Market Assessment and Valuation so you can evaluate just how ready you and your business are for sale.

If the value of your fitness club or business does not meet your expectations, we often suggest that clients take some time to fix an issue or two to help ensure that your club or business is in a better position to be sold for its maximum value.

But most importantly, when preparing a Market Assessment we spend a lot of time and effort getting to know you and to understand what matters most to you.  This helps us ensure that any transaction you are considering will accomplish your personal, financial and business goals.

How and when to sell your fitness club or sports business is ultimately your decision, so we are happy to provide you with all the necessary information and explain your options, so have the information you need to make the best decision possible.
