I have this idea of opening up a physical rehab center similar to a crossfit box but focused on rehabing patients from many sports. There is nothing like this where I live (an island) and I'd mainly profit from partnerships with local sports clubs, but also through individual clients. I want to offer a high quality rehab center focused on fixing the athlete's technique and making them stronger for their sport.
The thing is, eventhough I have a business degree and I am very enthusiastic about studying kinesiology and physical exercise, I have no real experience in running a business and I have no certification saying I can rehab people. I also have virtually any established contacts in this market.
The contacts that I'm looking for are business owners that are connected to the psyhical exercise market (gym owners, sports coaches, physical therapist, nutritionists, etc). However I am afraid that because these people already have their contacts, they will steal my idea after I talk to them. Is this a silly thought?
Also, does anyone have any experience with this market and has any advice?
