Just Like You
Just like The Little Gym® members, our franchise owners come from all different backgrounds. Some were attorneys. Some doctors. Some teachers. Some moms. Others had careers in sales and marketing. But they all shared something in common: the sense that “something was missing from their lives.”
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to be a gymnast and have experience of working with children?
No! Most of our franchise owners had little or no experience before joining The Little Gym International, Inc. family. Many have enjoyed careers across a broad range of sectors from accountancy and law to teaching, banking, the army and IT. There are also people who have joined us as instructors and gone on to become successful franchise owners.
Regardless of your background, we look for a passion for working with people and children and evidence of strong transferable skills that you can apply to
What makes a The Little Gym® owner successful?
All our successful owners have good common business sense, a ‘can do’ attitude, work well under pressure, love managing and developing a young team, have strong leadership qualities, a natural ability to build relationships with kids, staff, parents, and their community, an appetite to learn and are financially stable. They possess the entrepreneurial spirit that gives them the courage to leave the safety net of the corporate world and pursue their dreams. Do you feel this is true for you too?
Will owning a The Little Gym® provide a platform for the work life balance I am looking for?
Ultimately, your success is up to you. Once your business begins to mature it provides you with an opportunity to take a step back, own a gym franchise you are proud of, and balance it with a lifestyle your friends will envy. It all depends on your aspirations. Some owners choose to open a second location, some take a step back and work a couple of mornings a week, some spend significant time traveling while the business is operated by a Gym Manager, while some are happy to continue to operate their business day to day. It’s your business and your decision.
