Please briefly introduce yourself to our readers.
F45 Hebron/Kingsridge, HIIT training program in Carrollton and The Colony location has been operational for about 3 years now and Hebron being open for about a year and a half. Opening my first F45 location in Carrollton last year in February, we have been doing great and when Kingsridge location which has been almost the first location in the Dallas area came up for sale, acquired it as both studios being close to each other and works to compliment the original studio. Prasad Potluri, as a multi unit franchisee of Massage Envy when looking to diversify to other industries, opened F45 training which is coming up in the USA. It has been a wonderful experience interacting and knowing the members and how it transforms people’s life.
COVID has changed the industry as a whole. People have invested into home workouts and equipment and they have been using those as of now. The social aspect of the Gym has to come back with the workout impact of F45 training. It will take some time before everything comes back to normal.
F45 completely changed the layout of the original classes that were run to help keep the members as well as the coaches as safe as possible. We have various options and we choose the option where members do not have to move from one location or share equipment with others.
Not sure as of now, if it will survive this period. Loyal members have been supportive but there are majority of them still scared of coming into a gym or they have invested into home gyms that they are using as of now. It will take awhile before it may become normal. Can we survive until then is an unknown, we are trying everything we can to make it survive.
