Retention: The Reality and How to Change It


Is your studio's love life a series of bad dates? 

You know the drill. 

Clients come in, the sparks fly, but just when you think it's love at first sight—poof—they ghost you.

If you're tired of the “It's not you, it's me” chats…grab your headphones.

In EPISODE 583, I sat down with my rockstar Studio Grow coaches, Katie and Lindsey, to discuss the nitty-gritty of client retention. 

Trust me, it's like couples therapy for your fitness studio. 

Here's the Tea:

  • The Love Language of Retention: Katie breaks down how showing love to your clients is more than just a good playlist and a high-five.
  • Numbers are Your Wingman: Lindsey spills on why you gotta know your stats to turn those flings into long-term relationships.
  • No More Drama: Lindsey shares how a solid retention strategy is the ultimate stress-buster for studio owners.
  • Keep the Flame Alive: Katie talks about how to keep that initial spark going, so your clients feel special every single day.

So, if your studio is stuck in a cycle of fitness flings…

EPISODE 583 is your go-to guide for turning those short-term trysts into happily-ever-afters.

Catch ya there!

With grit and gratitude,
