Lack of Revenue? Lack of Leadership

Posted by on November 7, 2019 at 1:15 pm

It is the unfortunate truth that many small businesses fail and many times before they have even had a chance to start!

Our industry is no exception. Throughout my years of consulting, I have found….

…..that a lack of leadership can be one of the main reasons that fitness businesses struggle.

Whether or not you take the time to be a strong, organized and encouraging leader can really make or break your business. Many fitness business owners tell me “I can’t find the time to lead. There is so much to do!”  This is where great systems come into play. If you have great systems in place then you will have more time to lead! So get your systems in order and then start leading your team and start taking your business to the next level (check out the side bar on my blog or click HERE to learn how you can make our systems your systems!)

On Floor Trainer Reviews

Posted by on March 9, 2016 at 8:58 pm

 

DSC02801One of the tasks that is included in our yearly marketing plan each year is for our Fitness & Training Director to schedule on floor trainer reviews with each of our personal trainers. If you haven’t included this in your yearly marketing plan it isn’t too late! Remember, your clients expect the very best from you and your team. Spending time with each of your personal trainers (rookies and experienced trainers) helps the trainer hone in on what is expected of himself/herself and allows you to give constructive feedback. Make sure your standards are being met. Take the time to conduct on floor trainer reviews with your staff!

Here are a couple of the things our Fitness & Training Director will be looking for:

  • Arrives early and prepared for session
  • Appropriate attire, hygiene and speech
  • Gives a warm greeting to client
  • Checks with client on the status of their workouts/fitness routine
  • Has client sign in for session
  • Finishes session on time
  • Teaches exercises using an appropriate style (explain, demonstrate, client practices, quizzing)
  • Session is dynamic and interactive
  • Offers regular and appropriate eye contact
  • Body language demonstrates focus and attention on client / Hands-on spotting
