HOTWORX congratulates franchisee, Robin Ellsworth, who was awarded 3 franchise licenses in the St. Louis market and recently opened her Swansea, IL studio!
What originally motivated you to consider a business opportunity?
I am a chiropractic physician in Granite City, IL and started my chiro/med practice from scratch in 2008. I was looking for additional avenues to invest in that aligned with my holistic point of view.
What led you to explore franchising rather than an independent business?
I've been through starting one business from scratch and it is a very difficult avenue to partake in. Even though I've built a solid successful chiropractic practice, I was seeking something that already had structure and implemented successful strategies in place.
What was your initial impression of your first HOTWORX session?
It was a very good impression. I've utilized the sauna bed/blanket a lot and know the benefits of infrared heat.
How was your experience going through the HOTWORX Discovery Process?
It was a good experience, steady pace, and not overbearing.
How would you describe your Orientation Day and meeting the HOTWORX Executive Team?
Onboarding was fun. Orientation Day was a great way to meet everyone and their warm welcomes made it feel like family.
What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs considering the opportunity to franchise with HOTWORX?
Do not be afraid to check into it to see if it is a good fit or not.
What are the top 3 reasons you chose to franchise with HOTWORX?
1. Holistic Aspects
3. IR Sauna Benefits
What excites you the most in offering HOTWORX to your community?
Seeing people enjoy their workouts and providing a service to my community that is much needed.
What goals do you plan to accomplish in your first year as a HOTWORX franchisee?
Reach 1000 members and be the go-to fitness center in my community.
How will HOTWORX help you achieve your personal and professional goals?
Having a low number of staff and a low overhead will help me achieve a good source of income as well as promoting wellness.
Congratulations, Robin, and welcome to the HOTWORX team!
