Social Business And Self Employment

I recently posted a blog about statistics in the fitness business. I really only just scratched the surface with that one. In this blog post I want to address a few things that I had to leave out, and tie up loose ends. It’s always good to know where the next generation of competition could come from. I tend to think the source of competition to watch is self-employed trainers building followings through social media and then establishing studios once they have enough of a revenue flow.

Pros & Cons of Gym Retail Revenue

If you own a small gym, you probably know about taking on the heavy burden of capital investment and leasing your venue and equipment. It’ll keep you awake at night when you’re signing the checks, believe me! Like all small business owners, you really need to look at every possible way to bump up the value of foot traffic entering and leaving your gym. One effective way to do that is to sell retail items at the front desk or at a cash register in the foyer or lobby. What will people buy? It may take you some research and [...]

Should You Start a Nutrition Program at Your Fitness Center?

Fitness facilities are no longer just for pumping iron.  The word fitness has a whole lot of other connotations relating to overall health and wellness.  And no matter how many squats you do, how many miles you ride on the stationary bike or laps you swim in the pool, you'll never be truly fit if you don't get proper nutrition.
