Gym Cleanups Make Good Gym Rescues
When television production companies catch onto a formula that’s cheap to produce and popular with viewers, they really work it for all it’s worth.

Gym Business: The Dirty Jobs Nobody Told You About Continued…As they say if you’re not living you’re busy dying, which is totally depressing, but it is true that if you are not growing in your sphere of influence your sphere of influence is diminishing. In some ways it’s like the treadmill. You keep running but you go nowhere. You get off it in the same place you got on it. But you do so with marginally greater fitness each time. If you give up on fitness you lose it pretty quickly. It’s the same for much of the administrative paperwork that goes into running a business.

CrossFit Trend Or Fad

It seems like lately I can’t help but notice that workout spaces have been popping up with the name CrossFit displayed in bold letters across the front of the building. Gyms that offer this new workout system have been spreading like wildfire. Because it’s such a mixed and intense way of working out, CrossFit licensees, or affiliates as the brand calls them, need to be expert at fitness, personal training and injury prevention. It appears to present a huge opportunity for trainers to become owners. However, the question remains: Is it a true fitness trend or is it a fad that is just now peaking in popularity?

The Top Reasons Gyms Succeed

A while back I wrote an article about the ten reasons new gyms fail. It was well received by the readers of Gym Insight and the discussion was very gratifying for me. But as a believer in fitness and getting results in a positive way I feel compelled to balance it out with an article about the positive side of gym startups and success. I admit that there is likely plenty of overlap between this and the previous article. These things are worth saying over and over again and doing more reps never hurt anybody.

Social Business And Self Employment
I recently posted a blog about statistics in the fitness business. I really only just scratched the surface with that one. In this blog post I want to address a few things that I had to leave out, and tie up loose ends. It’s always good to know where the next generation of competition could come from.
I tend to think the source of competition to watch is self-employed trainers building followings through social media and then establishing studios once they have enough of a revenue flow. Also there were some statistics that relate the demographics of the industry to that of the employment world at large. It has some interesting data and you can check it out here…
