Thinking of opening up your own fitness business? The journey is an exhilarating one, but not without its share of potential pitfalls. The greater your awareness of these challenges, the better prepared you’ll be to overcome them.
It's that time again. You guessed it - time for a reality check. How is your fitness business really doing? If your revenue is so low your business checks are practically squeaking, or the most common thing you see in your gym is departing members' backs, it is time to whip your gym back into shape.
One of the more challenging areas of gym ownership is retaining the members you already have. While you may have a few serious, hard-core fitness fans, for the most part, your members may suffer from occasional lack of motivation to get fit.
Today, it is time to take a deeper dive into some exciting options for group fitness that just might be the ticket for enlivening your members and keeping everyone on track with their fitness goals permanently.
