HOTWORX welcomes new franchisees, Vickie & David Bergen, with their purchase of a franchise license in the Lubbock, TX DMA!

What lead you to explore franchise opportunities?
I decided to look into the HOTWORX franchise after bringing my sister in to workout with me for the first time. She told me that I should open one up near her house. She mentioned it to the manager and the manager also encouraged me to look into it. My husband encouraged me to pursue further. I then received the HOTWORX contact information from the owner of the HOTWORX where I was working out. The rest is history.

Can you describe your first HOTWORX experience?
The first time that I worked out in the HOTWORX sauna I chose the yoga session. I really struggled through the workout, trying to gasp for any cold air I could find coming from the small crack by the door. Afterward I felt so good that I decided to buy a membership.

How was your experience going through the HOTWORX Discovery Process?
I had a great time with the HOTWORX Discovery Process. Bebe was always so friendly and she was ready to answer any question that I had. She was real and honest and made me feel like I was joining an incredible team.

What was it like attending Discovery Day and meeting the HOTWORX Executive Team?
On my Discovery Day everyone was very friendly and happy to meet us. When meeting everyone I felt the special bond that everyone had with each other, like a HOTWORX family. All the presentations were well put together and everyone’s questions were welcomed and answered fully. It would have been nice to have had a schedule ahead of time and to have a couple of breaks. There was a lot of very good information but it was a bit challenging to take it all in when sitting for an extended period of time.

What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs considering the opportunity to franchise with HOTWORX?
I would encourage others going through this process that I’ve had a great experience with this company so far. They should pray about it and if it is a good fit for their life, they should join the team.

What are the top 3 reasons you chose to franchise with HOTWORX?
The three top reasons that I chose to franchise with HOTWORX are:
1- I was having to drive an hour+ to the nearest HOTWORX.
2- I wanted to bring a better way to workout to my community.
3- Talking to and meeting everyone felt like family.

What goals do you have in bringing HOTWORX to your market?
I am determined to make HOTWORX a success in a small town.

What are you most excited for in your first year as a HOTWORX franchisee?
Building our community. Helping people feel better, inside and out.

Congratulations, Vickie & David, and welcome to the HOTWORX family!
