Alternative funding options for your fitness centre

There are many unique funding options for gyms and fitness businesses alike, though some of the traditional loaning methods have become outdated, as they can be frustratingly difficult to obtain. This is why many modern company owners in the health industry look to alternative funding methods as a positive way to advance their businesses to the next level.

Unfortunately, the high street bank style of loan that many would have applied for and received in the past, is not always an option for companies wanting to purchase equipment for their areas of exercise and fitness clubs. Amongst other reasons, banks can often turn people down for cash loans if they have a less than perfect credit score, which is something that many people in the business world do not have due to the nature of the work they do on a daily basis. With alternative funding options, such as a merchant cash advance or a business loan from PDQ Funding, your credit score is usually not taken into account and can therefore be a much more accessible option for someone such as yourself.

Here at PDQ Funding, we understand that loans are taken out by business owners because they need help funding something that will either save their project, or continue to develop their venture onto a higher level than before. This is why no two loans are ever really the same, each one is applied for with the hopes of a completely different outcome. We let you make the decisions alone on what you’re going to use your newly found funds to achieve, because we get that only you can truly know the needs of your business.

In the past, our business loans and cash advances have been used by companies to invest in new staff, replenish stock to higher levels, invest in a new product, or even change the location of a business venture. You may require funds for one of these reasons, or something else entirely, which is why we leave the decision making to you. Owners of a gym centre may wish to purchase new equipment, buy a range of accessories to sell consumers from an in-store or online location, or even expand on your physical location to entice new members into signing up.

An example of success

GymShark is a company that’s barely 7 years old and has already produced a gigantic turnover. The business has built such great success by gaining consumer confidence and trust, as they have made a huge effort to appeal to a mass market, connecting with consumers through social media, promoting their own positive reviews, and supplying a quality, reliable product.

The sportswear empire is now valued between £300M and £400M with revenues that reached as high as $128M in 2018. The company has achieved at least a 200% growth sales year upon year since its birth, showing the fantastic planning and ambition that was instilled throughout the project before it even began.

Consumer confidence was the thing that really helped GymShark to take off and build from the ground up. As the company was started, it handed out free clothing items, such as t shirts, at bodybuilding events across the UK in exchange for people posting about them on social media. This helped the business become a recognisable brand, and one that customers could trust right from it’s conception.

Business Cash Advance Eligibility For Gyms

Any gym business that uses a card terminal machine (also known as a PDQ or Chip and Pin machine) to process customer sales, in theory could be eligible for a business cash advance. If you can demonstrate a consistent level of monthly cash inflow, usually 6 months of card payment statements will suffice.

There are various ways in which you could use your business cash advance, such as improvements to your gym or studio.  Obtaining new gym equipment, boosting your inventory or cash flow or even managing debt payments.
