Enjoyed the Heat and Challenge of It All

HOTWORX welcomes new franchisees, Andria and Brad Hertel, who were awarded 2 franchise licenses in Atlanta and are currently in presale at their first studio location in Acworth, Georgia!

What originally motivated you to consider a business opportunity?

Andria left the aviation work field almost 6 years ago to stay home with our children while Brad continued to fly for Delta. She has been looking for the right opportunity to get back to work with something that is exciting and challenging for her.

What led you to explore franchising rather than an independent business?

We didn’t actually go looking for a franchise. Brad stumbled upon a Facebook post with HOTWORX and thought it seemed different and unique so we tried a workout. Both of our work experiences are in Aviation but Andria is the one with the sales experience and love for interaction and meeting others. Working with a team is right up her alley.

What was your initial impression of your first HOTWORX session?

Hard… We did Hot Cycle and neither of us had done a cycle session of any sort before.

How was your experience going through the HOTWORX Discovery Process?

We had a great experience with Mandy!  A ton of information that definitely seemed overwhelming at times but that is mostly because we are questions people and new at the business owning stuff. Mandy was awesome at answering ALL of our 1 million questions. We would like to add that we wish we had more opportunities to try HOTWORX sessions first but we were not members anywhere and we wanted to keep the momentum going with Mandy even though we weren’t too familiar with HOTWORX yet. A bit of a leap of faith that’s for sure!

How would you describe your Orientation Day and meeting the HOTWORX Executive Team?

So fun!! Everyone was super helpful and full of guidance and information. Loved the small feel with the virtual call too.

What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs considering the opportunity to franchise with HOTWORX?

Take the time to do several workouts at a HOTWORX location to make sure this is something that excites and energizes you. Luckily for us, we enjoyed the heat and challenge of it all.

What are the top 3 reasons you chose to franchise with HOTWORX?

1. Unique fitness option
2. Hot workouts
3. Knowing that all of the big thinking has already been done for us

What excites you the most in offering HOTWORX to your community?

The quick hot workouts, infrared sauna technology and a new fitness and health option. Change it up for a healthy recharge!

What goals do you plan to accomplish in your first year as a HOTWORX franchisee?

Minimum 700 members and make enough money to fund our second location as much as possible.

How will HOTWORX help you achieve your personal and professional goals?

That’s easy! Andria needs to get back to selling and building relationships outside of her comfort zone. Professional goal of getting up every day and going to work with a smile on our faces while loving this job and meeting new people! Find a new level of confidence in our health and contribution to society! Oh… and get to feeling like we are back in our 30’s! :)

Congratulations, Andria & Brad, and welcome to the HOTWORX team!
