Who do I turn to for help with starting a health and fitness business?

For help with starting a health and fitness business, look for non-profit organizations in your local community that offer small-business counseling. In addition, consult with successful small-business owners if possible. Another option is to check with your local community college and ask if they have a business development center where you can access business support.

To start an independent health and fitness business you can turn to Sharecare as they provide the opportunity for the Sharecare certified trainers to own and operate their own independent fitness business.

There are many places to turn to for help. You can find a mentor that had opened a successful fitness business, reach out to SCORE - which is a great resource for small businesses, your local Chamber of Commerce also will have a plethora of resources. HFPN-Health and Fitness Provider Network is also a tremendous resource as is Sharecare.
