As a paying client, I wont appreciate if the place of service can be noisy on unpleasant. If you are opening your fitness programme at home, make sure that the space you choose is clean and pleasing always. Make sure there will be no disturbances on unexpected visitors such as kids as they might shoo away the clients.
4)Equipment and machinery, a gym and fitness programme require equipments. Make sure you have the right equipments for your gym.
