"Save your money before you open your studio. You should have a minimum 3 months, preferably 6, of your operating budget in the bank before you open," states Julian Barnes, Co-Founder of the Boutique Fitness Summit ("BFS") which organizes 1-day summits in DC, NYC, and Chicago. Julian has been around the industry since playing competitive tennis as a child. He's run over 100 networking events in NYC from 2012-2017 & his passion for the boutique fitness space (and helping the Owner/Operators with best business practices) is contagious! If you're an Owner or General Manager of a boutique facility, this is event is a must.
