Every studio owner wants to scale. 

But, it’s easier said than done. 

There are thousands of moving parts, a million things that could go wrong, and far too many staff members to keep an eye on. 

Which is why today, we brought in the scaling experts!

Our guests today are Beth and Brent Potter, two of the most talented people I’ve ever met in the world of boutique fitness. 

Each of their studios has around 600-800 members, and dozens of staff members to manage. 

And they manages to run everything like clockwork, to the point where one of his locations even ranked #1 across all Anytime Fitness locations in the US and Canada area. 

So, how do they do it?

Well, that’s exactly what we’ll be breaking down today!
