According to the peter lynch i got this company. I actually used to go to this gym in my town and they are well designed and maintained and crowded in summers(Good student offers). I once talked with the gym manager he said the only concern is the salaries are less but when i questioned about the growth of the business he said it's pretty good.
I am just trying to start a discussion here on this business. If the seniors or other members can share their views, I'll be most grateful.
