“THANK YOU so very much for all your guidance. I would have been completely lost without the knowledge you guys have shared. We’d love to have you at our center when we open.”

Opening Your Float Center

Opening a float center is far more demanding than you’d assume. A 4-tank center can easily cost $300,00 – $400,000 to launch correctly. Then there’s the intimidating task of filling up your tanks each month to cover rent, staffing, salt, laundry, and all of your other costs… and don’t forget you have to pay yourself.

Through our highly praised Apprenticeship program and Workshop series at the Float Conference, we’ve trained over 600 people on the fundamentals of opening up a float tank center. Our online apprenticeship covers all of the same material, but is delivered at your pace from the comfort of your home and at a fraction of the price of flying out for our in-person apprenticeship.

“Wish I would have purchased this long before I started anything. This is one thing I will never have regrets for doing!! Love that I am able to watch it when I have the time to really soak myself into it. Two kids makes some times nearly impossible.”

Let’s Get Started

In over 10 hours of online courses, Graham, Ashkahn, and Jake from Float On guide you through the process of starting your float tank center and building up your customers & members. From lease negotiation, to construction, to marketing, to revenue and expense projections – our course takes you from your early plans through opening day and beyond.

When your center is up and running, you’ll find that the online apprenticeship is also a wonderful asset to have on hand for initially training your employees and shop managers.

Join today, and if you really don’t think it gives you way more value than what you spend on it, please, take advantage of our 30-day, 100% money-back guarantee (but we seriously doubt that you will).

“I just wanted to thank you all again for an amazing training. You were very thorough and attentive to the details of all things float! I will highly recommend your services to the future to anyone who asks.”

– Judy Scott, Wellspring Integrative Vitality Center
