HOTWORX welcomes new franchisees, Isaiah and Allison LaBorde, with the purchase of 1 franchise license in New Orleans, LA!

What originally motivated you to consider a business opportunity?
When we found out we were pregnant with twins, we decided it was time to plant our roots and create an additional revenue stream. We wanted to start a business that we were passionate about but also one that wouldn’t take too much time away from our family.

What led you to explore franchising rather than an independent business?
Franchising has so many built-in perks that an independent business does not offer. It’s a faster track to success when joining an existing company that has already tested the marketplace and worked out the major kinks. Having built-in marketing/advertising along with the guidance of a motivated management team is truly invaluable.

What was your initial impression of your first HOTWORX session?
Wow. This little box packs a punch! The amount of sweat and calorie burn you can achieve in such a short time is pretty incredible.

How was your experience going through the HOTWORX Discovery Process?
Once we completed Orientation Day we knew without a doubt this was an opportunity we were excited to be a part of.

How would you describe your Orientation Day visit and meeting the HOTWORX Executive Team?
The HOTWORX Executive Team is amazing and like one big happy family. You can tell there is a lot of passion in the business, as well as dedicated teamwork. We knew immediately the amount of support we would have on this journey.

What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs considering the opportunity to franchise with HOTWORX?
JUST GO FOR IT!!! It’s a great company with a proprietary product that delivers real results. And if you have yet to do a session, definitely go try it out! The proof is in the pudding.

What are the top 3 reasons you chose to franchise with HOTWORX?
The HOTWORX franchise has a fantastic operating system in place with a ton of support. We truly believe the optimal way to succeed in business is having experienced mentors with a tried and true method in place. Secondly, HOTWORX is rapidly expanding and the success we’ve seen with other franchisees is nothing short of inspirational. We did not want to miss being a part of something with so much growth potential in sight. Last but not least, we absolutely LOVE the services offered. Making money is always a win, but being a part of something that transforms health and lives is the cherry on top.

What excites you the most in offering HOTWORX to your community?
That it’s a new, fun and convenient way to get healthy! Between the variety of sessions to choose from and the 24/7 operating hours, HOTWORX offers so much flexibility for even the busiest customer’s schedule.

What goals do you plan to accomplish in your first year as a HOTWORX franchisee?
In our first year we hope to reach our target number of members and have a projected steady increase of growth. We plan to be active in the community and strive to grow brand awareness in our area.

How will HOTWORX help you achieve your personal and professional goals?
When the twins were born, we were unprepared for our new world of chaos and sleep deprivation! We quickly succumbed to easy, unhealthy eating habits and fitness faded as a part of our daily lives. It wasn’t long before we realized that we were in dire need to get back to a healthier lifestyle inside and out. We had both used the HOTWORX sauna when it was first introduced to our local Planet Beach, so we already knew how amazing the benefits were. The decision to get a franchise was a no-brainer as we knew it would provide us the additional income we desired for our growing family and we would personally utilize it in achieving our goal of increased wellness!


Congratulations, Isaiah & Ali, and welcome to the HOTWORX family!
