How to Systemise Your Fitness Business For Greater Efficiency and Success
How Harnessing The Power Of Systems Can Help Personal Trainers Succeed, with Jodi Rumack - PT COREntrepreneur
Personal trainers spend so much time pondering fitness programmes and nutrition that they tend to neglect putting enough planning into their business. So, they often deploy trial-and-error business techniques that end up being super inefficient and simply don’t work. Trying different approaches is totally fine. The issue comes when people continue to copy something someone else is doing because it’s “supposed to work” but it isn’t working for them. They lose money because energy and resources are being put into something that isn’t generating a return.
What if there was a way to systemize every part of your business so that you can thrive as a personal trainer, gym manager or studio owner? This would free up your time so that you can focus as much energy as possible on expanding your client base and your services. Jodi Rumack helps businesses thrive by harnessing the power of systems.
“I work with different clubs, studios, and in-home personal training businesses as well, to help them maximise their business. I basically take everything that they are doing right now and tweak it by putting in systems that work”
