hmm, well my aunt has leased a clothing store for the past 10 years with good credit. Would I be able to have the lease under her name while the business license is under my name?
What about renting space from another studio ($1500/mo seems outrageous). Maybe try a Karate or MMA studio?
Actually the place I'm at is a pretty good deal since it's a flat rate no matter how many sessions I train. The only reason I was looking elsewhere was because I wanted my own dedicated location since people will take you more seriously as opposed to just some rinky dinky trainer working out of a gym.
