A friend and I are wanting to open our own gym, but naming it is becoming a serious struggle. Every name we fall in love with or even start to consider we find already exists either in the UK or beyond.

My question is this, how similar is too similar of a gym name? I'd never want to blatantly copy an established gym, but at this point i'm realising there may not be any decent original names left.

Any ideas of places to look for inspo?

For me personally, avoid the top American names (eg World Cup, Cheer Extreme, Top Gun, Cheer Athletics etc), and avoid all the gyms in a 50 mile radius from you, then rule out the big UK gyms, the. call it whatever you want. At the end of the day we all know that there are a limited amount of names in the world. Even if you make slight changes or add in a word, it’s different enough.

Naming your gym is the least of your worries. Opening a gym is seriously hard work and can take years. It’s not something you and a friend can just’decide’ to do

@post2 that helps a lot thank you!

@post3 have you never been taught that if you don’t have anything helpful to say don’t say anything at all? We’re both fully qualified coaches and have experience running a different gym, but thanks for the concern.

After opening my own gym I can assure you that naming it is important! It informs your branding, your ethos, and the spirit of the gym. I can also tell you that it takes a long time to get a good name!

Don't worry about @post3 they clearly have nothing better to do than to insult people especially seeing as they know zero about what you're doing. For all they know you already have a venue in mind and have been in the business for 15 years. Honestly this forun

it's true though isn't it it, look at the starting line up for cheer then look at the kids that actually went, many pulled out along the year and kids had to be pulled in that hadn't originally got in to fill the places. if this was a national football team and the biggest pool of talent (let's not deny it the only two teams that compete at this level are goldstar and jc so therefore the majority of the best athletes in the country are going to be there for cheer anyways) you would be asking why arnt we putting our best foot forward. this will only happen once there is a fair and unbiased system in place and no one can blame these teams for staying clear of this until there is a better system. i applaud every kid that goes for this but it's a national team, it's just about giving these kids the experience it's about doing our best and not being a laughing stock when we step out of the mat because the kids arnt anywhere near ready for this level of competition

It’s the CDC and Rockstar machine now, if it was fair people would be jumping at the chance to compete but it is NOT! Teams also don’t want to lose athletes to CDC coaches from getting in there ears! What coaches would want to send their athletes knowing what’s going to happen! I salute them for not sending them! TS could be amazing

because some teams do not need to fall into line and work under a shady system for their athletes to be successful so choice not to be involved.

Having read all comments I can’t understand why all Scottish teams can’t come together!
In doing so creating an amazing elite team of athletes,instead people are choosing to criticise those willing to stand up & be counted.
Teams such as JC & gold star would bring a lot to team Scotland however as both teams don’t seem to be involved then why knock CDC.
Having been to comps in Scotland & England CDC without question have amazing coaching staff with a wealth of experience & success.In my opinion I would be delighted for my child when old enough to compete as part of a national team.This is definitely something for children to be proud of...why any coach would stop a child participating is beyond me!!!!
