READY AIM EMPIRE : The 2020 ‘State of the Studio’

Team Studio Grow has been super busy this year. 

The first time we heard about COVID was wayyy back in January when our Asian clients started sending us emails by the dozens about ‘this one virus….’

Since then, we’ve been observing, analyzing, and crunching numbers. Working in 34 countries gave us a unique perspective of being able to see how nations dealt with the pandemic in different ways – from laissez-faire approaches to decidedly stricter measures. 

We gathered all of that data and intel into something we like to call ‘State of the Studio.’

State of the Studio is somewhat of an annual tradition for Studio Grow. Every year, we sit down and review the year that’s just passed, organize our observations and information into neat little reports, and share them internally with our clientele in presentations and exclusive meetings. 

This year, we wanted to take the ‘State of the Studio’ public. 

Because 2020 isn’t just like any other year. 

And we figured State of the Studio needed to be out there so it can help as many owners as possible. 

So, welcome to the first public State of the Studio – 2020 Edition. 🎉🎉🎉

We hope this is the first of many!

In today’s SoS, I’ll be sharing our takeaways for boutique fitness this year, including the definitive ups we’ve seen and 7 challenges still plaguing boutique fitness owners today. 

If you want to walk into 2021 confident that you have a finger on the pulse of this industry and take away some key tips for your business, this is the episode for you!

In this episode, you will learn:

  • My thoughts on increasing profit (and declining competition) during this pandemic
  • Why the demand for health is going to be so much greater than it has been
  • The significant growth we are seeing with new marketing efforts in our business
  • Tips and strategies for utilizing recurring revenue memberships
  • My thoughts on contractors and employees soliciting on social media
  • Press and media struggles and how to look at government shutdowns
  • What is a “predatory team member” – and what to do about this person
  • Why a business crisis plan is critical, the “capacity conundrum” and so much more!

With grit and gratitude

Danielle Hayden and Studying your Numbers (Part 1)

Now, I love hitting the account books at the end of the year, going through our numbers, collecting and analyzing data, and planning for the future.  But, I’ve also struggled with the accounting side of my business for years.  In fact, a running joke in my family is that if I was handling Studio Grow’s […]

How Would I Start All Over Again? (Part 4)

Y’all, it’s been a long February.  But, with every passing week (and every relative of mine that’s gotten a shot), I get more and more cautiously optimistic about the state of the world around us.  And it’s the same for our businesses too.  While this is a tough time for everyone in boutique fitness, these […]

How would I start all over again? (Part 3)

Y’all, when I spoke to my team about this episode via our weekly Zoom huddle, they just looked at me and said:  Lise, you cannot say that on the podcast However, despite any controversy, I truly believe in what I’m going to be sharing this episode.  So, keeping with the theme of the past two […]

How would I start all over again? (Part 2)

Last year, I spent a month with my parents in Louisiana.  Now, we’re a family from the deep south and we’re rich in conversation, hypothesis, and playing a more grown-up version of make believe.  So, the question ‘how would I start all over again’ has been tossed around constantly in our living rooms during game […]
