    These numbers showing the members increase in strength and broken down like that is amazing.
    No exaggeration, no one else in the entire industry can prove their system works like this, using actual data.
    First time I have ever seen (meta) data like this displayed for review.

    No surprise but to actually see the data is impressive.

    Only question for Coach Ray G --

    In list of the "highest-potential cities that we’d approve without much deliberation", you include Arlington. Is that Arlington, Texas, or Arlington, Virginia? I'd kinda hope for Virginia, being I'm in Manassas ...

    Hi Bruce, this is referring to Virginia. Arlington, VA gets ~10k hits to the website annually.

    Tommy, Francesco, Tiger- Thanks! This is a complicated business model since there are two tiers: selling gyms and enabling the gyms to sell memberships. Tough to balance all of the important considerations and incentives, but we're doing well so far.

    Ray, why is the 7 platform so much more expensive? What am I missing there?

    And it looks like the revenue numbers aren't too far off from my very rough projections.

    Glad these are so successful to date.

    Palios, the 4/6/8 platform estimates are for mixed use or industrial spaces. The lease, furniture, and buildout are less expensive. The 7+ platform column is our premium retail model (like all of the current gyms). Still much cheaper than our fitness franchise competitors and in most cases it means better access to the target demo and much better visibility.

    Thank you! Im imagining what our performance will be once theres less confusion about whether or not its safe to lift weights in a room with other people.

    One other follow up...the gyms you reference (Austin, Dallas, Houston, Denver)...are they industrial space or retail?

    As a comparison...is Weights & Plates that Robert owns an 'industrial' space? I've been there, and it doesn't look like the pictures of the SS gyms I've seen. Or is W&P an affiliate?

    All of the current gyms are premium retail. This was the vision for the SS franchise model and now that it's proven, we are going to experiment with different formats.

    Santana runs an Affiliate Gym - not sure what type of space he's in but it appears to be mixed use.
