The fitness industry has witnessed several waves of change over the last few years. And with every conversation I have with boutique fitness owners who are on the forefront of these changes, I learn something new about what the future of boutique fitness is going to look like.
And after this episode of The Business of Boutique Fitness, if there’s anything that I know is going to be instrumental to success in this industry moving forward, it’s knowing your clients and being sensitive to their needs, and making sure that you’re working to serve and deliver to the right people!
