Why Leasing Makes Good Business Sense

June 2013

As we head into the summer season, it’s time to start planning for the fall, back-to-fitness season. As the summer months tend to be slower revenue generating months for many fitness facilities, finding the extra cash to purchase new equipment may be a challenge.

If you need to upgrade your Pilates equipment or are considering adding a Pilates/Mind-Body program to your facility, why not consider leasing?

Leasing is a simple financial strategy that will help you build a successful Pilates business and it makes sense for a lot of reasons. It is estimated that over 80% of all North American businesses use leasing to acquire some or all of their business equipment and machinery.

By leasing your equipment, you keep your cash available for day-to-day operations and expenses. Longer, flexible payment terms mean that your payments are manageable and do not fluctuate over the term of your lease. And as your business grows, you can add additional equipment.

When arranging your lease, payment options include variable term lengths and buyback amounts based on your target monthly payment. We recommend that you discuss this part with your accountant to see which option works best for you. Your lease can also cover small accessories like mats, bands and balls, plus related “soft costs” (up to 25% of the lease value) including freight, installation, training and manuals – everything you need to get up and running! 

Our financing partners work with most credit levels and offer financing for businesses in the USA, Canada and UK. This summer, the decision to lease is even easier with our “You Don’t Pay for 90 Days” program*. Getting started is simple: choose your Equipment, choose your Term, and start maximizing your Revenue!

We’re here to help with equipment decisions, layouts, and general questions about managing an effective Pilates/Mind-Body program. Check out our equipment financing page or send us an email at equipment@merrithew.com.
