Running a successful gym is tough and finding good help for gyms can be hard
Often gym owners stake everything they have to open their dream gym, only to find out how hard it is to be successful and that they have very little experienced support available. This is not helped by the thousands of marketing experts and gym gurus who are selling their services via Facebook and other channels, all claiming to offer a perfect model for building membership. Often all these services achieve is to take further cash out of the business whilst delivering little or no results.
In reality, a perfect model doesn’t exist, if it did we would all be using it. Every gym needs to reflect its local market, industry sub-sector and react carefully to emerging trends. This approach plus clear operational systems, careful marketing, and great customer service offers the only reliable way forward. This requires a lot of hard work and without help can be a challenge, especially if you are busy from dawn to dusk dealing with members, delivering personal training or running group exercise sessions.
