    I just wanted to thank you guys for taking the time to post this crucial information about opening up a cheerleading gym. I am currently in the early stages of opening a gym up in the Chicago area or my hometown area in the Quad cities. I am a former Northern Illinois cheerleader and I’m wanting to open it with my long time friend and flyer, who lives in the Chicago area. I currently have a good job, but I work a lot so it makes it increasingly difficult to communicate and discuss business plans with my partner. With that being said I just wanted to say thanks for this information it’s nice hearing from actual gym owner’s perspective!

    I currently have had my own Rec cheer program for about 3 years however took a step back last fall because some girls decided to venture into other sports and many of my girls graduated from Jr high going on to do high school cheer(which is was my program is training them for). Right now I am trying to grow but with the limited space and days (I rent at a tumbling facility) its hard for me to grow because of the fact we are only there 2 days a week. I want to take the plunge to lease my own place but am extremely hesitant because of the cost and don’t like to be in debt…. If I had my own gym I could offer my cheerleaders tumbling classes outside of cheer practice and other training classes to improve their skills plus it could be somewhere they are always welcome, not just when we have practice. Any suggestions ??
