Jennifer Maanavi and Creating a Digital Empire (Part 3)

In Part 3 of our conversation with Physique 57’s Jennifer Maanavi, we’re discussing all things COVID-19. 

Right now, everyone, including your clients, are coming from a place of caution, fear, and uncertainty. 

And it’s our job to make them feel safe and comfortable when they walk through our studio’s doors. 

In today’s episode, Jennifer and I discuss the trends we’ve noticed in studio reopening, the attitudes of clients, and what an ideal reopening time frame looks like. 

We also spend some time dissecting exactly why boutique fitness studios are much safer than your average grocery store, and why owners should have a little more confidence in their spaces. 

Reopening is a tricky subject and one studios need to be delicate about. This episode will help guide you in the right direction!

In this episode, you will learn:

  • The response Jennifer was able to witness as studios are reopening
  • What the future public response to studios reopening could potentially be across the board
  • Advice for people who are still considering opening a franchise at this time
  • What she and her studios have mostly been focusing on during closure time

With grit & gratitude,
