The Business of Boutique Fitness

I’m Lise Kuecker, a long time Studio Owner turned founder here at Studio Grow. Just a few years ago, I was building my studios the hard way cause I didn’t have the team, the budget, or most importantly the time. If you speed up to today, I sold my wildly profitable studios in the mid-7 figures while serving my community in ways I could have only dreamed. Now, I work with thousands of boutique fitness studio owners in over 40 countries and am so blessed to share some of the best tested strategies for our industry every single week. I created this podcast so you’d always have clear, actionable processes, tried and tested Facebook advice and some good ole fashioned inspiration so that you can take simple actionable steps to grow your studio and turn it into a powerhouse empire, just like I did. If you’re a studio owner who's ready to impact your community and see major growth in the process, or you’re prepping to become one, then you are in the right place. So let’s kick this off, shall we?

It's one thing to assemble a group of talented individuals, but it's another to create an environment that encourages growth, creativity, and a genuine love for what we do.

If this sounds like your cup of tea, you're in for a treat! 

Recently, we caught up with Coach Amanda. She's not just a whizz at fitness coaching; she's also a seasoned studio owner with a treasure chest of insights on team development.

In EPISODE 566, Amanda opened up about her tried-and-true methods for effective feedback, goal setting, and empowering her team. 

Here's a sneak peek at what she shared:

  • Feedback Loop: The art of giving feedback and goal setting that actually leads to change (Yes, it's possible).
  • 6-Step Process: Amanda's personal approach to development conversations that work. It's a six-step process that's all about breaking the ice, getting employee feedback first, giving feedback, and more.
  • Communication: The magic of open-ended questions and how they can help your employees open up and share.
  • Employee Empowerment: Empower your team to take ownership of their roles and processes for better performance.

Remember, a well-oiled team is the heart and soul of a booming boutique fitness studio. 

Let’s listen and learn, together.

So grab your notepad and tune into EPISODE 566.
