We’re rounding the corner to week 5 since our studio shut down, and yes, we are officially over it. The roller coaster of emotions is almost too much to handle at times, but like you we keep persevering. We hope you are hanging in there, you are healthy, and staying safe and strong. It’s ok if you’re not… these are hard times indeed.
Running a business through a global pandemic is not something we’re necessarily familiar with so each and every day we are learning something new about our business, our team, and ourselves as leaders.
Here are the top 6 lessons we are learning. There are many, but we’ll leave you with the top 6.
1) Health is everything – When the pandemic started we had a hard time distinguishing between the fear of shuttering our business and the fear of the virus itself. One thing this virus reminds us is that life is short, there are no guarantees and being physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually...
First and foremost… it’s time for a giant collective exhale. We hope that you, your family and your studio community are all healthy and safe.
The last few weeks have been non-stop as we all try to do our part to stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus AND figure out new ways of working. For most studio business owners this means that we’ve had to bring our businesses completely online in a matter of days… a process that usually takes months… or even years.
But the wellness community is strong… and resilient. And we love seeing fitness business owners creating and expanding in new and different ways. Your ingenuity, your commitment to your team, the way you leading your community and your strength and perseverance is truly unparalleled.
One topic that’s been on all studio owners’ mind is how do I continue to be profitable as we weather this storm.
When times get tough it’s common to focus on your revenues – after...
You have heard the adage that you should work more ON your business and less IN your business, but what does that really mean?
Of course, as business owners our “to do” list is a mile long and there are truly never enough hours in the day. So why do so many studio owners continue to fill their schedules with clients and never officially step into the higher-level tasks that fall in the working ON your business category?
Before we get started, we have to share a bit of training about this concept that we learned from one of our friends and colleagues, Ashley Selman, owner of Evolution Trainers and Thrive Studio Coaching.
Ashley teaches about this concept of $15/$100/$1500 per hour tasks, and she encourages studio owners to lean into their highest value/highest return tasks as much as possible – hence the $1500/hour tasks.
Let’s break this concept apart a little.
What are the $15/hour tasks? These are any tasks that can be completed by...
Do you want to feel healthy, fit and strong in your 40s and beyond?
Of course you do! We all desire to feel good in our bodies, be fit and strong and let our vivacious nature radiate from us! And often times we apply the age-old advice “exercise more, eat less” or we jump from latest craze to latest craze in hopes of finally finding the best exercise plan. Rather than feeling like our best selves we often end up feeling stressed, frustrated or stuck.
If you’re feeling like you’re in a rut or you're disappointed with your exercise routine . . .
Check out our 3 Exercise Tips for your 40s and Beyond
#1 – Incorporate Moderate Intensity Exercise – Gone are the back-to-back days of high intensity and long duration exercise. Research proves (and we have seen it in ourselves and our clients) that the “go hard or go home approach” can break us down and lead to burn out, aches and pain and even injuries. Try adding 1-2 days of lower impact...
