    How "balling" (rich) is the owner of your gym?

    damn dude mines prettty CEOing, he bought out the lease, has around 200 members medium is 100$ a month, most is 120 or 135 a month (i dont think anyone does that) (the more courses you pick the more it cost per example BJJ is 95 a month put MOO-TIE is 105 plus MMA its 115 etc etc

    so lets say everyone pays 100 (round off)

    every year this dude is making like 240,000 if my math is right

    100X12X200

    and its growing, and expanding

    (not counting the 50 kids in the kids program)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    not counting the merchindise they make you pay (more profit for them)
    and tickets for fights (more profit for them)

    pretty crazy.

    what about your owner?

    We have about 350 members averaging about $110 per month, plus they sell a lot of merchandise.

    I don't know how much they make, but as he pays the instructors $10/class, I know its a lot.

    I used to train at Ricardo Almeida's. I feel like it's safe to say he makes more than most Martial Arts gym owners strictly from his school.

    He has numerous exotic cars and three houses one being in Brazil. None of this is because of the gym but still...haha. I love Mr. Carmina, he's the ****ing **** and the father of my best friend whom I've known since 1st grade.

    Not sure if he is considered the 'owner' but after his donation to the Sioux Valley Hospital they renamed the gym after him too. So, Denny Sanford is #117 on the Forbes Richest people list with a net worth of 2.5 BILLION. So I'd say, he BALLIN.

    It's even more impressive when it comes from a coach like Adonis' (not a lot a money comin in compared to what is spent and still more is put in to improve the gym and the members experience).

    my teacher bet all he had on two fighters he trained in thailand. he won, and with the takings he bought a house almost outright. his gym is a job on the side now, and as far as i can see, he sees it as his retirement.

    i don't go to an MMA gym, but my regular gym's owner is doing pretty well. the gym is 185,000 square feet over 20 acres in the middle of town. the gym has been there since 1965...so I'm guessing he owns the building and the land. i don't know how many active members there are, but it is always PACKED. and the guy drives a lamborghini. i don't know what model it is, but it's pretty new. and he may have more than one (but he probably sold the old one when he got the new one).

    Totally. A few years ago my gym was pretty much a straight boxing/kickboxing gym. I bugged him long enough about adding some grappling classes, and now we're one of the bigger MMA gyms in the area.

    The boxing gym I went to was in a bad part of town. One of the owners just disappeared one day then reappeared 8 months later. I assume he was in jail for distribution of crack cocaine considering we would have addicts showing up at the gym. So no the owners weren't balling.

    dont' always assume things about how much these guys make. the owner of my gym (gold's) owns a hummer and is hemmorraging money through the gym. That hummer is probably worth more than the gym. some people feel like they have to maintain a certain 'lifestyle' even when business has gone to ****.

    and they are idiots

    The owner of my gym seems like a regular middle class guy. Doesn't look like he's struggling, but he doesn't seem super rich either.

    There's 6 BJJ and 6 MT classes per day plus MMA once a day, Kettlebell 3 times a week and they have a children's afterschool program.

    They also sell a ton of merchandise. To train there you have to buy the gear they sell, so they bring in about $500 per day from that too.

    Last year at the X-mas banquet they read letters from Renzo and John Dannaher (its a Team Renzo school) congratulating the owner are running the most profitable of all the Team Rezo schools, so I know he's ballin.

    I probably make more in take home pay than the owner of my gym does, but he owns his own business and he's doing what he loves for a living, so I envy him.

    If you refer to a fighter who you've never met in real life as "my boy" as though their performance somehow reflects well on you for simply being a fan, you're a lame ass.

    Dude is actually a year younger than me and graduated from business school just as the gym's former owner was getting ready to close the place down. he bought it and took over, been running it for a few years now.

    Enterprising guy...

    The guy that owns my gym basically ran around for years doing odd jobs and continued training. I respect that he stuck with what he was passionate about through the times when business wasn't so good for muay thai coaches and put himself in a position to do well now that the sport is exploding.

    My gym has only been open for a little over 3 years. I'm the longest-tenured student there.....I was there at the very beginning. It's still very small (probably around 60 members). But it's been growing steadily. I don't think the owner makes that much, but if things keep going the way they are, he'll be doing alright eventually.
    In 1945, Adolf Hilter died and went to Hell. Satan asked, "why are you in Hell?" He replied, "I am responsible for the massacre of millions" Satan said, "well done, sit to the right of my throne." In 1953, Joseph Stalin died and went to Hell. Satan asked, "why are you in Hell?" He replied "I killed millions to stay in power" Satan said "good, sit to my left" 2010, Ronnie James Dio died and went to Hell, Satan asked, "why are you in Hell?" Dio replied, "Bitch, get the fuk off my throne!"
