    Hey folks!

    Just wanted to give y'all an update. Our architect is done with the drawings and will begin the dreaded permitting phase in the next day or so. We have approval of our temporary signage and I'll be sure and post pictures once we have it up on our store front.

    We have so far a total of 8 sign ups and I am still following up on those that have expressed interest in our gym. We should have a pretty solid marketing plan put together soon in order to drive more awareness and exposure for both the gym and Starting Strength in general.

    Here is a screenshot of our initial gym layout and what it looks like once an architect (and 10k later...) get ahold of it for your enjoyment:

    Hey folks!

    Just wanted to give y'all a quick update while we are waiting on permitting from the city (which could take from 4-6 weeks). We now have our temporary signage up! I got a fresh and clean haircut (even wore my YouTube famous pants) to take photos with my Starting Strength Dallas shirt in front of the space with the signage BUT they began work on the parking lot yesterday. SO you will not have the pleasure of seeing my pretty face (or pants) in front of the storefront (probably better this way actually...)

    Is there any personalized artwork/furniture we should be looking forward to? Or are all SS gyms going to be identical in feel?

    Just wanted to give y'all an update here.

    The plans are with the city and no joke within 3 hours they already had some comments. Like you need a restroom and a water fountain. (I assure you we have both already in the plans...)

    I had a mini-panic attack when a latter comment was received late last week that we would need an additional ADA bathroom (this would mean scrapping one of the racks/ platforms). Fortunately all the architects had to do was have a conversation with the inspector and we are fine with the current set up of one ADA bathroom and one changing room. Not sure what that conversation entailed but I am glad that we are fine as is...

    I don't know how these plan reviews actually take place but given that they are a government operation I can't imagine many good things with regard to care or attention to detail.

    The architects are sending me an updated cover sheet to walk into the city on Tuesday so fingers crossed we will have our permits soon.

    I will have some very exciting news to announce about our coaching staff line up very soon.

    Plan review is chaos. Good luck. If it isn't too late, my advice is to say as little as possible, be nice, and tell them "I don't know. Should we call the Architect?" if they ask any questions.

    Andrew,

    As a franchise all will be pretty much identical in how they look. We all use the same equipment manufacturer all the same furniture fabricator. I think how it "feels" though is very much up to the individual coaches that run the show and the lifters that participate. I know you are a fan of metal and one of my coaches is too. Me on the other hand, will likely only be playing a combination of a cappella chamber music and k-pop during my classes.
