Meet Barry & Shay: Cracking the Code on Epic Class Experiences (PART 2)

Shay Kostabi & Barry Ennis

We’re going to pick up right where we left off in the previous episode, and dive right into detailing out what an unforgettable class experience looks like. 

In this episode, Barry and Shay take you through a step-by-step journey of what you need to do before a client even walks in through your studio doors. They discuss how music can really make or break a class, why you need to diligently rehearse your class plan and assume you’re the host of the party, the importance of greeting clients individually as they arrive, how to correctly pump them up for the workout ahead, and much more! 

Get ready to become the highlight of your clients’ week!

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • Why the client experience is everything when it comes to the future of boutique fitness {and it starts before they even walk in the door to your studio}
  • That high energy music the whole time isn’t better, and other considers with the music you play during class
  • The reason that reconnected with your why before each class is important {and ways to do it} 
  • How to effectively prepare and hold space before the class starts 
  • Tips for greeting people and making them feel welcome 
  • Why your introduction is so important, how to ask if anyone has injuries in the right way, what’s next in Part 2 of this series, and much more! 


With grit & gratitude,
