026 Turning Pro | How many intro sessions are right for your client

 

(Please note, this episode was recorded before COVID-19, ah.... simpler times)

Are you a coach or gym owner who is still trying to find that *magical number* of 1-on-1 sessions your new members need before going into a class setting? Are you afraid to tell a new member that they need 10, 15 or even 20 sessions with you prior to jumping into the group?

In our experience when we talk to most gym owners who are resistant to selling 1-on-1 sessions to a new client, the main concern is not that people don’t need it, but that they fear people won’t want or buy it. 

In today’s episode Larry and Dr. Sean give you a formula to implement in your gym today to determine a custom number of 1-on-1 sessions for each client. We discuss the questions to ask in order to reduce the likelihood of injury and how you can use these tools as a selling point to increase competence and create a safer training environment.

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.

021 Turning Pro | What problem does your business solve?

 

What kind of business do you want to be?

Now ask yourself, does that align with the kind of business that you are running?

We see many gyms making the mistake of falling prey to the latest social media tactic before they even know the purpose of their message. If you’ve never sat down and figured out what problem you solve as a business and why you are unique in solving it, then your vision is muddy. 

In this episode, Dr. Sean walks you through an exercise he personally uses to audit himself and the business regularly. We give you the 3 questions you need to answer in order to create a clear message and differentiate yourself from the gym down the street. If you find that you are still chasing the top of the pyramid to increase your revenue and you're tired of utilizing “next hottest trend” then we urge you to revisit your business foundation.
