#SnapNation Success Story: Sandford L. Bracebridge, ON

2014-07-03 | By: Snap Fitness

After years of frustration as a member of another gym, Sanford L. decided he could do better. He saw an advertisement for Snap Fitness franchising and decided to open up his own club in Bracebridge, Ontario.


“The more I read about Snap Fitness the more I thought this is a great concept, “ Sanford L. said. “I had always wanted to open a business and this perfectly combined that goal with my love of health and fitness.”


The process was easy for Sandford. He opened his first club just months later and received great feedback from the community.


“It was nerve wrecking of course, but it was great and we were well received,” he said. “Snap Fitness corporate helped me get everything lined up for a successful grand opening.”


Sandford is scheduled to open his second club in the next few weeks. He says owning a Snap Fitness has come with more rewards than he ever imagined.


“I didn’t anticipate the changes in people’s lives I’d get to see,” he said. “I’ve had members that have lost over 100 pounds that tell me that this gym saved their lives.”


He has some simple advice for anyone who’s interested in owning their own business.


“Don’t hesitate in opening a Snap Fitness,” he said. “It’s truly a business that pays off and I’m so encouraged everyday by everyone here.”
