The Road To 'The $50k Club' Goes Through The Barbell Business Summit

Only the top 1% of independent brick-and-mortar box owners will clear the $50,000 monthly revenue mark. So we created an award called the “$50k Club” award to recognize these gym owners who reach the financial milestone using Big Little Gyms and Gymnetics…

Every gym owner deserves to be recognized with a walk across the stage at the Barbell Business Summit to receive their $50k Club award, and celebrate the special milestone that they’ve hit!

Rather than another plastic trophy, a framed record, or a plaque, we present our gym owners with a Mjölni (The Hammer of The Thunder God Thor) hand-crafted by a USMC veteran, making each one one-of-a-kind.

This hammer is symbolic of the journey of gym owners not only recognizes financial success but also represents the journey. The transformation to selfless leader that a gym owner must endure to reach this milestone.

It serves as a reminder of the qualities they embody and the impact they have made. It adds an element of honor and distinction to the recognition, making it a truly meaningful and memorable experience for those who receive it.

In addition to receiving the award, the gym owners who have reached this milestone have a story to tell. At the event, they will share their insights, strategies, and experiences with others during the $50 Club panel Session at the summit.

This further enriches the event by providing valuable knowledge and inspiration to fellow gym owners who aspire to achieve similar levels of success.

Overall, the "$50k Club" award and the recognition given at the Barbell Business Summit contribute to fostering a sense of community, motivation, and accomplishment among gym owners.

It demonstrates your commitment to celebrating and elevating the achievements of entrepreneurs in the fitness industry.

Are you ready to take the next step in your journey? Are you eager to learn from the top 1% in our industry? Then join us at the Barbell Business Summit. Become part of our community, gain valuable insights, and let's celebrate success together.
