HOTWORX welcomes new franchisees, Jamie and Aaron Thibodeaux, who were awarded a franchise license in Jacksonville, Florida and will soon begin Presale at their St. Johns, FL (Durbin Pavilion) studio!
What originally motivated you to consider a business opportunity?
My husband and I are extremely motivated individuals, we have a strong drive to enhance our personal and financial success. After graduating college I started my career as a nurse 15 years ago and I am currently over business and clinical operations for a Pediatric Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Practice and my husband is in Sales Management of an electrical supply company and graduated with a degree in Marketing. With our combined experience in sales, marketing, management, health and wellness and customer service we felt this business opportunity was suited to our current capabilities. In addition, we knew we wanted to be able to contribute to great products and services in our local community as we noticed that there are not many places to achieve fitness goals in our area.
What led you to explore franchising rather than an independent business?
HOTWORX has an established business reputation and image, proven management and work practices, fantastic advertising and ongoing support. We don't plan on quitting our day jobs so we know franchising is right for us.
What was your initial impression of your first HOTWORX session?
HOTWORX is a game changer in the fitness industry!
How was your experience going through the HOTWORX Discovery Process?
We found the experience to be extremely informative and an overall simple process.
How would you describe your Orientation Day and meeting the HOTWORX Executive Team?
We really enjoyed meeting the HOTWORX team and found their knowledge and excitement about the brand to be refreshing. We moved away from New Orleans a few years ago and they really made us feel at home.
What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs considering the opportunity to franchise with HOTWORX?
What are the top 3 reasons you chose to franchise with HOTWORX?
1. We already knew about their history and success
2. We are passionate about fitness
3. The innovative technology associated with HOTWORX
What excites you the most in offering HOTWORX to your community?
To run a profitable business, represent the HOTWORX brand and to meet company and personal milestones.
What goals do you plan to accomplish in your first year as a HOTWORX franchisee?
My first goal and order of business is to obtain a large number of members. I want to expose this brand to as many people as I possibly can. Once I do this, I know that HOTWORX will take off on its own.
How will HOTWORX help you achieve your personal and professional goals?
This is our first step into the world of franchising and we feel like we made the best choice. We can pursue our passion, help the community, and provide a better future for our sweet babies, Liam and Cecelia.
Congratulations, Jamie & Aaron, and welcome to the HOTWORX team!
