Climb that mountain.
Breathe in, breathe out, let go.
Feel the music.
Do this for yourself.
Barre yoga instructors, Zumba teachers, running coaches, spin instructors…all command a fitness class with motivational cues to keep you breathing, sweating, feeling strong, and coming back for more.
But does that same message carry into post-workout advice and convince clients that sweating through every layer of clothing they own is better than tossing popcorn roof-high, catching it, and flicking through the 5,438 movies on their Netflix list?
Once your clients have left your fitness class (or before they’ve ever attended), they’ll want to know that your studio, spin class, boxing class, ultimate bungee/salsa/burpee combo class, is the one they should attend over and over.
So how do you do that? How do you take that motivational feeling you inspire in person and put it online and in homes?
If you’ve been around here before, you know the answer.
By creating a blog for your fitness studio and writing posts that speak to your clients, showcase your work and the energy you offer, and answer those questions that you get after class, you’ll keep that post-class glow (the feeling, not the sweat) going long after the final song/push-up/kilometre.
