There are probably a hundred different examples that I could write about where my education of running a Fitness business saved myself and my Fitness studio. I’d love to say that it’s all me … that I’m a super-intuitive person that just knows what to say and do in every situation. But that’s just not true. The fact is, though I’ve learned a lot from trial and error, the bulk of my business know-how has come from mentors and attending educational seminars.
Like many in our industry, I started my Fitness business because I love Fitness. I thought “I’ll open a gym, people will join, and I’ll make money.” A lot of Fitness businesses start out this way; they open a studio because they love what they do and have a ton of experience and education in Fitness training, running a Boot Camp or in the Martial Arts. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that they have the knowledge and skills to run an efficient Fitness business.
