Many Texas gyms and martial arts studios post security with the Secretary of State’s Office because of the Texas Health Spa Act.
A popular form of security because of cost is a surety bond. The amount of the bond will range between $20,000 and $50,000. The number depends upon the membership prepayments collected.
Or the owner can provide a certificate of deposit (CD) instead.
Of course, there are exceptions under the Act to the security rule.
