A Very Easy Decision

HOTWORX welcomes new franchisees, Stacy, DJ, and Donna Blasko, who were awarded a franchise license in the Las Vegas market and are currently in Presale at their Las Vegas, NV (Centennial Hills) studio!

What originally motivated you to consider a business opportunity?
We considered getting into this business over a conversation. We've lived in Henderson, NV for many years and we were members of the Black Mountain location for about 2 years. In January of 2021, we bought a house in Las Vegas completely on the other side of town about 45 minutes away from the location we were currently using. Once we got settled in our new house, we started searching for a location close to us to go to. To our surprise there wasn't one. DJ loved going because the infrared helped his back so much and helped him to be able to continue his passion of off-road racing and I loved the way I felt. Mostly joking around in conversation I said, "Well hell babe, if there aren't any anywhere close to us then let's open our own!" He actually said, "ok well let's look into it." One email and a return one from Patty and here we are!

What led you to explore franchising rather than an independent business?
We had actually pursued and were looking into our own independent business in 2020. We ended up putting that on hold due to the uncertainty of Covid and then we ended up looking into HOTWORX. We decided to abandon our own private business venture for the time being and go after HOTWORX because the structure and plan of HOTWORX was extremely thought out and not only were you buying a franchise, but it came with an entire support team behind it with years of experience and well thought out business plan.

What was your initial impression of your first HOTWORX session?
My first impression was holy crap I've never sweat so much in my life in a workout before and I couldn't believe how amazing I felt afterwards! DJ couldn't believe how much it started to alleviate his pain and how just after a few sessions he could touch his toes again. Donna did well in her first session. She's getting better with every session and acclimating to the heat and she's loving the workouts.

How was your experience going through the HOTWORX Discovery Process?
The Discovery Process was great! Patty is the absolute best! Every question we had or came up with she had an answer for or found one. It was a very painless process and made the decision of joining the HOTWORX family a very easy decision.

How would you describe your Orientation Day and meeting the HOTWORX Executive Team?
Meeting the Executive Team was great. They were so full of energy, very knowledgeable and they had a great sense of humor! You could tell that they all work very well together and know what they are doing.

What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs considering the opportunity to franchise with HOTWORX?
My advice to other candidates is DO IT! LOL. Another thing would be to do your due diligence and make sure that this is the right fit for you and your situation and to also pack your patience! You get so excited and pumped up and ready to roll head first 100 mph after onboarding and then you get to play the waiting game finding a location. It's an incredible opportunity.

What are the top 3 reasons you chose to franchise with HOTWORX?
1. We absolutely love and believe in HOTWORX and their product.
2. We like the fact that their business plan is so easy to follow and that you have support.
3. The potential to grow our business into a very profitable one to help our family and allow us to do something we are passionate about.

What excites you the most in offering HOTWORX to your community?
What excites us the most in being able to offer this to our community is we know how amazing the health benefits are. People don't take time for themselves as much as they should these days because we are all going 100mph. I was one of those people. It's time to invest in ourselves and show people that "more workout in less time" can help you achieve whatever your fitness goal may be. I want our community to be excited and healthy.

What goals do you plan to accomplish in your first year as a HOTWORX franchisee?
We've set some high goals for ourselves after the convention. We set a goal to break the current record of members signed on the first day of presale and we also want to be at 1,000 members by convention next year! Another goal we set is that we want the Vegas market to be a team, not just individual franchisees. We've gotten together with many of them several times and already have great friendships.

How will HOTWORX help you achieve your personal and professional goals?
HOTWORX is going to help us with our professional goals by creating a successful business and possibly opening more locations in the years to come. It's also going to help our family financially to where hopefully DJ will be able to quit his current 8-5 job and help with HOTWORX more so we have more time as a family before our kids are grown and gone. Personally, it's going to allow me to grow professionally and share this amazing opportunity with everyone and set a great example for our daughters.

Congratulations, Stacy, DJ & Donna, and welcome to the HOTWORX team!
