HOTWORX welcomes new franchisees, Carley and Ivan Ostrander, with the purchase of 1 franchise license in Odessa-Midland, Texas!

What led you to explore franchise opportunities?
Ivan has been working for a restaurant franchisee for over 5 years and is well versed in the Operations of being a Franchisee. Carley has been coaching fitness classes for over a year so we decide to combine the two experiences in opening our own franchise in fitness!

Can you describe your first HOTWORX experience?
Sweaty!!! Ha ha! A Challenging workout while pouring sweat which led to a post workout feeling of feeling a little lighter, more relaxed, and a great night’s sleep!

How was your experience going through the HOTWORX Discovery Process?
Good! Nancy was very helpful, knowledgeable, and insightful! At times, it felt like the process was lengthy but in hindsight, I am thankful for the steps and time spent on topics in all areas.

What was it like attending Orientation Day and meeting the HOTWORX Executive Team?
Fabulous! What a fun group! Very well presented, intelligent, and funny! I think everyone enjoyed themselves while learning about HOTWORX and getting the information needed to make the decision on whether to franchise.

What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs considering the opportunity to franchise with HOTWORX?
We appreciate they have years of experience in franchising and have very specific processes in place! It takes the guesswork out of what to do when starting your franchise! We are just getting started but are extremely excited and have thoroughly enjoyed everyone we have worked with so far!

What are the top 3 reasons you chose to franchise with HOTWORX?
1. Fitness is a growing industry and will always be a priority in people’s lives!
2. Great business model
3. Low Startup Costs vs. franchising other concepts!

What goals do you have in bringing HOTWORX to your market?
Sharing the HOTWORX love in West TX & Arizona while building solid stores with a strong membership base that ultimately means they are financially successful and will continue to grow!

What are you most excited for in your first year as a HOTWORX franchisee?
We CAN NOT wait to open our first location! We want to introduce our area to the HOTWORX brand and get their sweat on! We know they will feel better physically and mentally! We can’t wait to make them as obsessed with HOTWORX as we are! And we are excited to hit the competitive goals and challenges that are presented and awarded at convention each year – we want to be one of the #1 locations!

Congratulations, Carley & Ivan, and welcome to the HOTWORX family!
