The Concept was a Home Run

HOTWORX congratulates franchisees, Clarissa Diaz and Christopher Damolaris, who were awarded a franchise license in the Chicago market and just recently opened their Naperville, IL (75th St) studio!

What originally motivated you to consider a business opportunity?
We own hair salons and day spas in the western suburbs of Chicago. We’ve been in business for 44 years and we wanted to diversify while still being able to serve people. Our culture for our company is, “ We not only make people look beautiful, but we make people feel beautiful!” Fitness is an important key to true happiness with a mindful body and soul.

What led you to explore franchising rather than an independent business?
We weren’t really looking into a franchise until we fell in love with the concept. Hot Yoga has been a practice of my wife for more than 8 years. Yoga is something I truly believe will always keep a person grounded while life continues to change daily.

What was your initial impression of your first HOTWORX session?
Absolutely genius! The concept was a home run. It gives a consumer the opportunity of ALL worlds wrapped into an infrared workout, which in turn leaves you with a longer lasting burn. You can slow it down or challenge yourself with HIIT workouts. The world is all about convenience and quick results. This workout does the job.

How was your experience going through the HOTWORX Discovery Process?
Great! We had the pleasure of working with Mandy Verges during the Discovery Process and I believe it was a match made in heaven. She was extra knowledgable, as well as her team, through this.

How would you describe your Orientation Day and meeting the HOTWORX Executive Team?
Great, considering we went through this process during the 2020 COVID pandemic. Everything went smoothly via zoom. It was well planned out and extremely knowledgable, yet personable.

What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs considering the opportunity to franchise with HOTWORX?
Love the concept, love people, and love to make a difference!

What are the top 3 reasons you chose to franchise with HOTWORX?
1. Systems in place with proof
2. Franchise seems to be organized
3. Partnership and Growth

What excites you the most in offering HOTWORX to your community?
Our passion for fitness while creating an environment that people look forward to putting in work, breaking a sweat, releasing endorphins into your soul, while creating a community is what makes us excited!

What goals do you plan to accomplish in your first year as a HOTWORX franchisee?
1. Plan on hitting the goals we set
2. Plan on opening another franchise
3. Changing peoples lives one session at a time

How will HOTWORX help you achieve your personal and professional goals?
It already has when we stepped foot in the door!

Congratulations, Clarissa & Chris, and welcome to the HOTWORX team!
