HOW TO CREATE A SUCCESSFUL & SCALABLE FITNESS BUSINESS

I’m just going to put this out here: it is downright difficult to compete in the fitness industry these days, let alone set yourself up for long-term financial success. I read a statistic recently that indicated there were nearly 37,000 health clubs/fitness centers in the United States alone. So, how in the world are you going to make sure that what you offer not only brings in enough clients to keep your head above water, but also generates enough revenue that you can rest assured that the lights will come on for another day and you may even be able to take that vacation you’ve been dreaming about for years?

Here are 5 Go-To Methods I recommend to all of my consulting clients to ensure their gym is around longer than it took to build it out:

  1. Adjust your business model to include layers of memberships. There are many gyms out there that exist solely in one niche – one price point, one type of membership. In this current climate, that’s not going to keep you competitive. If you introduce multiple price points, you can cast a wider net to attract more potential clients in different demographic segments.

Start with your basic membership – the lowest price point – these are the people who just want to come in, do their own thing and leave. They will not require too much of your time which is good, because they’re not paying for it. Level that up to your next price point and introduce large group/team training ie: boot camps, yoga, spin – any type of class where you can have one instructor who is giving specific exercises, but in a larger group setting. It’s a little more structured, but still not too much personal attention. Your next level should be a couple of sessions of small group training per week where you cap your group to 4-6 people and each individual gets more attention. That can be bumped up again to include unlimited small group training sessions for a higher price tag. Round out your price list with private one-on-one training for those clients who want a completely individualized program and a lot of attention.  Each level will appeal to a different type of client and require a specific level of interaction in direct relation to the price tag.

marketing for fitness businesses

  1. You MUST have multiple profit centers – ideally 6-8 sources. This is where many gyms set themselves up for failure. What do I mean by this? Diversify your offerings! Just like with stocks, you do not ever want to put all of your eggs in one basket. What if that basket breaks? Your completely out of luck. Don’t tie all of your potential into one profit center. Explore alternate product offerings such as supplements, sports performance, nutrition, heart rate monitors, specialty programs, saunas, massage/FST, workshops, clinics, seminars…the list is only limited by your own creativity. Whatever you do will not only open up another revenue stream, but will also increase your overall visibility and perceived value in the community, in turn leading to additional potential clients.
  2. If you don’t currently offer Small Group Training (SGT), get that set up immediately. Over the past ten years, private training clients have become fewer and further between. At the same time, the interest in small group training (4-6 clients) has grown exponentially. While my gym tends to attract more private training clients than many across the nation due to its location, I still wanted to figure out how to take advantage of the SGT trend and make it just as lucrative for my gym and it worked out perfectly. Now, they are not only tied to the trainers, the program and the gym itself; they are now tied with the other members in the group. It creates more of a bond.

Let’s use my own numbers at Pulse Fitness for reference. My trainer was already going to set aside an hour of his time for Private Training Client A for $80.  For that same hour of his time, we decided to replace out the single session PT client with a SGT session. I lowered the individual cost of each client to $45 per client and raised the number of clients to 4 in same time slot. I am now bringing in $180 for the same hour with the same coach which is more than 2.5 times the total I collected for the single private training client during the same amount of time. Why wouldn’t you do this?! Not to mention that most of our PT clients only purchase a handful of sessions and then move on. Our SGT clients tend to sign monthly contracts that earn this same hourly rate month after month. Don’t miss out on that piece of the financial pie. 

  1. Do not pay your trainers per head, per session or a percentage. Pay your trainers a flat rate for their time; not for what they’re doing. This does several things for you. First of all, it keeps your employee costs predictable every month. Gym Owners are, as a whole, pretty bad with money. As soon as it comes in, we spend it. This way, there are no surprises when it comes to payroll and you know exactly how much is left over to cover any unexpected expenses. Secondly, it doesn’t matter if your trainer has one client or 30, your costs do not change. You can keep your coaches on a set schedule that is hourly so that no matter what they do, they make the same amount. This puts you in charge of your own gym, your own payroll, your trainers and your own money – not the other way around.
  2. Stop selling sessions! If there is only one thing that you take away from this blog, remember this: stop selling sessions and start selling results. Everyone is different and it takes a different amount of time to reach their goals. There is no way to say that someone can reach their goal in 5 sessions, 10 sessions, or more, especially since these session packages don’t usually expire. One client may come in 5 x week and spend the entire 10-session package by week two; another may come in twice one week and you won’t see their smiling face again for a month! Hence any results they may have expected or you may have promised are impossible to predict.

Additionally, most trainers are not very good sales people as they intrinsically want to help people and feel “bad” asking for money from the same clients time and again. Remove that obstacle and sell people into monthly memberships with x sessions per month instead of x sessions total. Sell them into the long-term results they will get from continuing with a program – lose body fat, increase self-confidence, feel great about themselves, or accomplish the impossible. This way, you’re only selling a client once and you will have recurring monthly EFTs.

Creating a successful and scalable marketing for fitness businesses is not an easy feat, but if investigate the opportunities I have outlined in this blog, you will be ahead of most of your competitors. Get started today!

Whey has a high biological value and gets easily absorbed from the stomach and instantly feeds the muscles that have been exhausted in the gym after weight training or cardio sessions. Many people think that best whey protein with water is for people who do gym workouts and pick weights and not for those who run and do weight less exercises but it’s a complete myth.

No Fish Oil, No Protein Powder, No Multi’s? Get Off the Denial Bandwagon!

No Fish Oil, No Protein Powder, No Multi’s? Get Off the Denial Bandwagon!

Our bodies need a lot of nutrients to function properly and eating a diet in Western society with all our processed foods, nutrient-depleted soil and busy schedules makes it really tough and expensive to get what we need from what we eat.

Think about it. Are you eating two to three servings of fresh wild fish, high in omega 3s, each week? Are you eating tons of raw leafy greens, broccoli and other fresh fruit and veggies of multiple colors? How about lean protein with every meal? Grains? Legumes? Unprocessed carbs?

If you’re reading this, you probably do care about what you put into your body and probably are getting some of the essentials. But it’s pretty tough to do it perfectly. (And eating perfectly all the time can cause stress too, which wreaks more havoc on your body!)

Whey protein Water

Whey protein Water

That’s where supplements come in — to help you treat your body the way you want so you can think clearly, live a vital life and keep a lean, attractive body at your ideal weight.

Figuring out what types of supplements you need can seem daunting as well, so to make it simple, we’ve broken it down into four supplements. Take these weekly for a well-rounded balance:

1.Fish oil supplements.

Your body needs the omega 3s found in fish oil to function. When you don’t get enough, like in most Western diets, your body and brain mechanisms start to break down and you have a higher risk for numerous problems, like heart disease, cancer, diabetes, mental disorders and poor vision, to name a few. Wild fish is great but is often high in mercury and other contaminants so you can only eat so much. Fish oil supplements have become the proven answer for many health-conscience individuals.

2.Multi-vitamins.

The degradation of our soil, air and water supply makes it impossible for us to get all the nutrients we need from food alone making it essential for us to supplement with certain essential vitamins and minerals. This means taking a high-quality multi-vitamin/mineral plus additional disease-fighting antioxidants, the most important of which are Vitamin A, Vitamin E and Vitamin C.

3.Whey protein powder shakes.

Our bodies need lean protein with every meal (plus fatty oils like fish oil) so that they can metabolize carbs for food. Protein is also essential for building and maintaining muscles, organs, hormones, hemoglobin and antibodies. Whey protein Drinks offer an easy, quick source of protein (one of the most easily absorbed sources of protein there is) for those who don’t always have the time to cook. Also, whey shakes give your diet some tasty variety.

4.Green drinks.

Eating fresh, organic greens is not always so easy for those on the go, but it’s critical to our health. Plus sometimes you just don’t want another salad or broccoli floret. Green drinks offer an easy, tasty alternative. The green vegetables, spirulina, barley greens, wheatgrass, green tea extract, and other concentrated green superfoods in green drinks contain high quantities of antioxidants and phyto-nutrients and  help purify the blood, aid digestion and elimination, enhance the immune system and boost your energy.

How to Find Healthy Foods Eating on the Go

Healthy eating when you’re at home and in control of your environment can be relatively straightforward.

But what about when you’re not at home? Here are 5 tips for finding healthy foods to keep you on the straight and narrow. Even when you’re away from the safe confines of your home.

1. KEEP THINGS SIMPLE

Your meals should consist of:

Lean Protein i.e. chicken, fish, chickpeas

Colorful vegetables i.e. broccoli, peppers, tomatoes (eat the rainbow)
Healthy fats i.e. olive oil, coconut oil, avocado, nuts, seeds
Smart carbs i.e. brown rice, sweet potato, wholemeal pasta. These are considered to be ‘smart carbs’ because they take longer to digest. If you consume white rice, for example, it will digest quickly, therefore causing sugar levels to spike.

If you keep this simple formula in mind, you won’t go far wrong when eating away from home. While we recommend following our anytime meal template (Click here to download ), keeping that mental checklist in mind will keep you focused on what you need.

2. PICK THE GOOD STUFF

If you’re going to indulge away from home (on occasion it’s a good thing to do). Pick the good stuff.

Part of choosing quality items is to go for products containing fewer ingredients. Also, if you see an item with a list of ingredients you can’t pronounce – give it a miss.

By opting for quality alternatives as opposed to the more processed ones, you’re automatically going to fuel yourself with better nutrients.

A good example of this is chocolate. When you’re in the grocery store you’re usually presented with a choice…Snickers, Mars, or a few paces away, a bar of dark chocolate.

While dark chocolate is slightly more expensive, not only is it more satisfying (usually two squares will satisfy you), but it also features the following health benefits:

An excellent anti-oxidant
Heart healthy
Improves circulation
Can control appetite (if eaten 20 mins pre-meal)

3. SNACKS AS TOP-UPS

One of the most dangerous things to do is to leave the house when you’re hungry.

But with the busy lifestyles we have, sometimes it happens. By taking healthy snacks with you (i.e. a small packet of nuts) you’re keeping yourself ‘topped up’ in the event you get an attack of the munchies.

This is also particularly useful when at work. Keeping healthy (non-perishable) options in your desk i.e. nuts, oatcakes, biltong. This is an effective way to avoid that tasty plate of muffins calling your name…

4. COMBINE ITEMS TO IMPROVE THE FLAVOUR AND NUTRITIONAL CONTENT

Okay, I agree, carrots on their own are usually best suited for rabbits. But rabbits don’t have hummus, do they…poor rabbits!

By combining different healthy options you can turn a boring snack into something truly yummy. Click here for 5 quick snack recipes that combine healthy ingredients into really tasty choices.

5. SAUCE ON THE SIDE

Sauces can be a key source of stealth stuff that you don’t want — namely, processed sugar. Sauces may be added for flavor, but you can control how much of that flavor you add by asking for sauce on the side.

By asking for sauce on the side you are consciously taking control of your food intake.

Gym Clapham for a short podcast discussing the dangers of a diet high in sugar, how to identify sugar and how sugar can benefit your training.

The point is, by being creative and keeping healthy, quality options at the top of your mind, you can enjoy eating away and not feel guilty about doing it.

Bon Appetit!
