HOTWORX welcomes new franchisee, Angela Mott Burgess, with the purchase of a franchise license in Montgomery, AL!

What lead you to explore franchise opportunities?
I wanted to get into the fitness industry but I didn’t want to do what everyone else was doing with a typical gym or personal training. I saw HOTWORX as a chance for me to help people reach their fitness goals without taking hours from their day and their family. There are so many people that physically can’t go into a gym and get a good workout for many reason such as disabilities and other medical challenges. Some people are just totally intimidated by the idea of going to a typical gym. That is where I really think HOTWORX will be huge in the fitness industry.

Can you describe your first HOTWORX experience?
My first HOTWORX experience was amazing! I’m a crossfitter and I wasn’t sure what to expect so I did Hot Cycle first. I was so surprised at how great of a workout I received in such a short time (well it felt like forever hahaha). Then I did the Hot Yoga workout while I was super sweaty from Hot Cycle and it was so much fun. I could not see that I was sweating so bad but I still loved it. I smelled different and my skin was oilier than when I normally sweat, but I knew that was a good thing because the infrared was getting all the toxins out of my body.

How was your experience going through the HOTWORX Discovery Process?
Bebe was great…on time with calls and very understanding if I missed one. She was very informative with everything and always very friendly

What was it like attending Discovery Day and meeting the HOTWORX Executive Team?
When I came to Discovery Day, it was so great and everyone was so nice and knowledgeable. When Bebe picked us up from the hotel, I just knew this is what I wanted. Everyone seems to love what they do there and working for the company itself. It was very organized, professional and informative. They’re so relaxed at HOTWORX corporate…I love it! The whole team is amazing! I’m so excited to start my experience with HOTWORX and the HOTWORX family. Just everything about it feels right for John and myself.

What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs considering the opportunity to franchise with HOTWORX?
