    Depends on your situation. If you're working at a chain gym, your hands are pretty tied. If you're independent/own a facility/do in-home, I would spend the entire month of December doing everything I...

    Hate it or love it, January is just around the corner, and with it comes a new flood of potential clients. What is everyone doing to capitalize on this, so these newbies workout with you and not with...

    I try to stay as active on both as I can. I could do a lot better, though. It's hard to quantify exactly how well it works for me, but I do generate a large majority of my clients through my website....

    Awesome! Good luck. Be sure to check on the laws in your country and with your insurance about running a gym out of your house.

    Relatively, not much. Being that we are a free weights gym, I avoided having to pay for expensive machines. It was 1-2 years in the making, so I purchased equipment here and there when there was a...

    I've had hit or miss success with them over the years. 5 years ago, it was hard not to be successful with them. Often you could pay as little as $20 and get 5-10 quality leads. Over the years,...

    I would ask yourself two questions:

    1. Why is there not a studio already like this in the area?
    2. Is it possible to convince trainers to come to my studio and pay 2-4x more than what they are...
