Limitations in the rental agreement
What condition are the changing rooms, toilets
What fees are they paying CFHQ, affiliate fee and so on
Just to start with... To help you get a better picture.
Plus you need to know what your budget is and contingency fund
All of the current members are on year long contracts with the current owner, most pay monthly for membership.
The reason that its only 48 members right now is that the owner doesn't put the effort or time into running it. He is a chiropractor and owns an Anytime Fitness with a CrossFit attached to it in a different town, that gym has over 100 members and is doing really well. His previous partner is the one that pushed for the second location and then left the business June of 2015.
Water and all utilities are included in the rent, the box is attached to a rec center in a small town. The bathrooms and shower facilities are nice and recently updates. I am not 100% sure on limitations of the lease/rent agreement.
Currently not affiliated with CFHQ, he let the affiliation lapse because he did see the return on the money fast enough.
