Funding Your Business
Use Your IRA/401K
to Fund Your Business
If you have retirement funds that you have not yet paid taxes on, you can access those funds to capitalize a business. You can then use those funds to buy a business, for any business expense, and to pay salary!


You are in control, you decide how much of your retirement funds you wish to use for the business. When working with a company that specializes in this funding option, and follows all of the IRS guidelines, you are able to buy a business Debt Free and Equity Rich (from the rollover of your IRA/401K funds). Additionally, you'll have a new 401K/Profit Sharing Plan that you can begin to contribute Tax Deferred.

The Fear Factor of Buying a Franchise




Author and Philosopher Bertrand Russell once said "To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom."

Buying a franchise is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make, so feeling fear is not only normal, it is entirely appropriate to the situation.

Who has fear? Everyone! Fear prevents us (most of us, anyway) from jumping out of a moving car or going over a waterfall in a barrel. Fear helps us make choices that are less likely to endanger our lives. Fear also prevents us from gambling our life's savings on a horse race or marrying someone we've known only a few days.
However, when we feel we have enough information about a subject, we can often get over fear and do things that were beyond our comfort zone.
If you are one of those people who has done your homework and found the franchise opportunity you've always dreamed of but can't seem to commit to a decision, then the final doubts you have are probably about your own abilities rather than the franchise itself.
This is where a qualified franchise consultant can help you. By assessing your interests, skills and experience, a consultant can guide you to a decision where risks are at an acceptable level and the benefits, while not certain, are well worth the effort.
The only problem with fear is when you allow it to stop you from doing something you know will make a positive difference in your life. Don't let fear stop you from reaching your goals!

D1 Sports Training
Cash Needed: $250K
Total Investment: $195K-$664K
Current Locations: 106                                

D1 Sports Training was founded by Will Bartholomew after he suffered a career-ending injury and discovered that there was no place for him to truly train and that allowed him to fully recover and optimize his performance, all at the same time.  That's when he realized, there was no place to train like he did at a Division 1 school - with the best coaches, equipment, workout programs and community.  It was with this simple realization that he started his D1 journey 17 years ago.

Early on in the growth of D1, Will partnered with Dan Murphy (a West Point graduate and one of D1's original members), to develop a sustainable growth plan all predicated on one thing, D1's mission - to inspire others to be their best.  The two distilled their collegiate training experience into what is now known as D1's 5 Star Training program where every workout adheres to the 5 tenets of athletic-based training:
  • Dynamic Warm Up
  • Performance Module
  • Strength Training
  • Core & Conditioning
  • Cool Down

D1 Sports Training franchise is a membership-based gym and boutique fitness franchise that provides individual and group training classes in a state-of-the-art facility, the likes of which are normally found on the campuses of the biggest schools and in the training centers of the best teams.

Benefits of owning a D1 Sports Training franchise:
  • Division 1 Training Programs
  • Affordable franchise opportunity
  • Fitness industry is exploding
  • Exceptional core values
D1 Sports Training has perfected their turn-key franchise support system ensuring their franchisees will never have to build their own workout programs or be alone in hiring staff, site selection, marketing, training and more.
