For many gym owners, 2020 was a fork in the road.

  • “Some were forced to close permanently by no fault of their own which is simply awful,” said Ryan McFadyen, owner of Ohio Strength.  
  • “For many others, they're either realizing how much they love what we do, and this is reinforcing their drive and desire to overcome the adversity and continue to grow and move forward.”
  • “Or it has made some owners realize maybe they should consider looking for a way to sell or get out of gym ownership because this path may no longer best serve them and their families,” he concluded.

Why it matters: For those owners who have pressed on, 2020 has taught them some valuable lessons and they are looking to apply those as they forge ahead with their goals for 2021.
