Turning Pro 032 | How to Rebrand Your Gym and Succeed

 

 Listen to the whole episode by subscribing here

Let's be direct.  Owners of gyms large and small have been discussing de-affiliation from the CrossFit brand for some time, whether as a protest over the changes at CrossFit HQ or because a lack of perceived value provided for the affiliation fee.  This topic has been thrust back into the spotlight following a series of comments and tweets by their founder and CEO Greg Glassman and a huge wave of affiliates have announced their intentions to leave the brand.

But what next?  We're not weighing in at all whether it is good or bad to stay or leave the CrossFit brand.  What we're discussing is what you need to know to create your own brand, and the inherent challenges included in that.  We've boiled this down to five steps that you can make a real plan with.  If you love this episode we've built a full online course that will serve as a guide to rebranding.  Get the course here.

024 | Designing your Service - The Business Building Hierarchy, Pt. 4

 

What service would you provide if money was not part of the equation, at all?

Most gyms didn’t start their business because they we’re looking to make money, yet most of the decisions that gyms make are guided by money. Services are created based on a dollar amount instead of being based on what a client needs to do in order to be successful and what that would cost.

Without understanding your beliefs, creating habits and communicating your message The Service doesn't really matter. If you haven’t listened to parts 1 through 3 of Business Building Hierarchy go back to episode 21. In this episode, Dr. Sean talks about designing your service, providing the right service for the individual and how you can create personalized results faster and more sustainably for the price you feel good about. At the end of this we want you to be confident about how to sell solutions, not time.

The Unspoken Danger of Going Back to the Gym

People are going to get hurt when restrictions are lifted and everyone is allowed to return to the gym. The good news is that you can be back in your gym on day one, and you don’t have to be one of them.

You joined your gym to get in great shape so that you could live a long time, look great naked, be desirable, have self confidence, and feel amazing. When the gym got taken away from you, it’s likely that you realized you can still accomplish all of those things without the gym, and yet, we all want to get back to it as fast as possible. Why? Because the gym, the CrossFit gym in particular delivers far more than all of those things. It offers a social outlet and membership to a tribe. It is important that you remember this when you go back. Here’s why.
