Join Cherise and Emily as they chat all about the amazing growth Emily’s been experiencing in her brand new studio. 

We’re talking 100 new members in 3 months kind of growth…during summer. 

Yep, Emily is a force in the fitness world, and not only is her story inspiring, but she shares a ton of fantastic insights for both brand-spankin' new and seasoned studio owners alike.

  • How Emily founded CrushCamp from a place of necessity and the values she consciously defined before ever opening her doors
  • What made her say “yes” to trusting the process and embracing a membership model and marketing plan that has resulted in 100 members in a span of 3 months (during a typically slow season)
  • Why Emily decided to embark on The Client Cure journey and how she has leveraged the education and support to grow her studio quickly
