When you open a Texas gym, chances are you’re focusing on your skills as a fitness trainer instead of business owner. And this focus can lead to financially devastating mistakes.
For example, if your venture violates the Texas Health Spa Act, your gym membership agreements can be considered void. In other words, every member who signed these contracts can walk away and not pay you a dime.
That’s no way to run a long-term profitable business.
And if you think the lack of enforceable contracts isn’t a real danger, understand that many Texas gyms were forced to permanently close their doors during the COVID-19 pandemic…their members didn’t return because there was no contractual obligation to do so.
Is the health spa law the only thing you need to be worried about? No, there are other state and federal laws that apply…and they’re generally pro-member and anti-gym owner because they’re consumer protection laws.
Want to make sure you’re legally compliant?
It’s time to schedule a phone consultation with Texas Business Lawyer Mike Young to identify what needs to be fixed before it’s too late.
Please note that Attorney Young doesn’t represent gym members. Only gym owners. So don’t set up a consult if you’re a Texas gym member trying to get out of your membership agreement.
