Meet James Hall of Spenga Montrose

Today we’d like to introduce you to James Hall.

Thanks for sharing your story with us James. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Three years ago, I was an environmental sustainability executive working for a Fortune 1000 company in Northern NJ. I’ve always wanted to own my own business and after a tragedy that caused a lot of self-reflection decided to pursue that goal. I quit my job and proceeded to search for a business opportunity. I’ve always been interested in health & fitness and all things outdoors, I decided to see if I could find a related business. I became keenly interested in the boutique fitness space and began investigating opportunities. During my search, I stumbled across SPENGA a new fitness concept based in Chicago. I fell in love with the concept and decide to pursue it. I was one of the early franchisees and had the first choice for markets across the US. After evaluating the various markets, I decided to come to Houston to began my journey.

Has it been a smooth road?
Not smooth at all. In fact, it’s been a worst-case scenario. Construction delays, permit delays, Slow startup.
