HOTWORX congratulates franchisee, Zoe Elise, who was awarded 3 franchise licenses - 2 in the Houston market and 1 in the Dallas-Fort Worth market. He recently opened his first studio in Sugar Land, TX (HWY 90A)!
What originally motivated you to consider a business opportunity?
I love the independence and flexibility that comes with being a small business owner and found that as a franchisee we could also share in the collaborative benefits and support of the bigger business network of the franchise.
What led you to explore franchising rather than an independent business?
I chose to pursue HOTWORX because it’s a rapidly growing business in an industry that we are passionate about!
What was your initial impression of your first HOTWORX session?
We were blown away by the intensity of the workout. We loved that in just 30 minutes we had burned as many calories as we would in an hour-long workout anywhere else. The most surprising element of the workout was the detoxification benefit!! We were exhausted but had an unusual amount of energy following the workout. It was like no other workout we have ever experienced!
How was your experience going through the HOTWORX Discovery Process?
The level of support and education provided by the HOTWORX team from the very first day was outstanding. We had scheduled, weekly calls to go through the previously provided information and answer any open questions we had at that time. We respect and appreciate the level of accountability that we were held to throughout the process, as it assured us that the franchise goal is to align with franchisees that are equally committed to the values and success of the franchise.
The experience going through the HOTWORX Discovery Process was nothing but great to me. Patricia Gattuso prepared me more than enough to feel 100% confident to start this new journey as a young entrepreneur.
How would you describe your Orientation Day and meeting the HOTWORX Executive Team?
I would describe my Orientation Day as the beginning of a new chapter for me that prepared me to execute my new goals in this business. Meeting the HOTWORX Executive Team was very natural and ego filling as they gave us more & more confidence while welcoming us new members.
What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs considering the opportunity to franchise with HOTWORX?
The advice I would love to give to other candidates considering the opportunity to franchise with HOTWORX is to take the time, if you haven't yet, to go experience the workout, record all results, and ask yourself is this something I would recommend to my family and friends?
What excites you the most in offering HOTWORX to your community?
What excites me the most in offering HOTWORX to my community is that I am bringing the future of the fitness world to my community and will play a role in bettering lives in my community.
What goals do you plan to accomplish in your first year as a HOTWORX franchisee?
I plan to accomplish all goals that the company has set for me to meet and more. I’m sure I will shoot to set some new records in my first year as a HOTWORX franchisee.
How will HOTWORX help you achieve your personal and professional goals?
HOTWORX will help achieve my biggest personal goal that I set for myself after grad school and that goal is to be able to support my mother 100% so that she can stop working 16 hour shifts at the hospital. On professional goals, I will be able to be my own “BOSS” and that truly brings joy to my life.
