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?

Boundaries are back!

We addressed the topic of boundaries recently on the podcast.

Here we’re taking a deeper dive. Because boundaries are important, y’all. 

Get into the weeds in my latest podcast episode, A Balancing Act with Coach Cat and Peter. 

In Episode 615, Coach Cat and Coach Peter consider acknowledging and articulating your boundaries and recognizing cues that they’ve been crossed. Learn to foster a culture that embodies your boundaries and helps keep your life in balance.  

Details of the discussion: 

  • Learn Your Limits: Boundaries are critical for healthy relationships. Get introspective to get to know yours.
  • Tune In: Know the signs that your boundaries have been crossed. Are you overwhelmed, resentful or indecisive? 
  • Get Comfortable with Confrontation: When a boundary is broken, address it immediately to promote understanding.  
  • Honor Your Time: Every studio owner breaks the boundary of time. Set up SOPs and org charts so you’re not on call 24/7.
  • Communicate Your Culture: More than just some values hanging up somewhere, your code of honor should be alive and evident.

Take home bonus tips as well in Episode 615: practice explaining your boundaries, listen to your gut instincts, get good at saying no, delegate more and prioritize your wellbeing.

Catch you there.

With grit and gratitude,
Lisé

Cancer affects everyone. 

Although we may not have a diagnosis, we know people that do.

As prevalent as cancer is, it still feels uncomfortable to discuss. 

And yet, boutique fitness studios can play a significant role in coping with cancer. 

So we’re having that important conversation in my latest podcast episode, Exercise and Cancer: Science and Guidance for Fitness Professionals. 

Sit down with Coach Cara In Episode 614 as she talks with Tom Christensen, a certified exercise physiologist and research assistant at the Physical Activity and Cancer Lab at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Come away with important insights into how cancer changes lives and how exercise can help. 

At the core of the conversation: 

  • Immense Impact: In the U.S., 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lifetime. For men, it’s 1 in 2. 
  • Health Hijacker: Cancer (and its treatment) makes you sick, tired and weak. Plus, it can trigger stress, depression and anxiety. 
  • Treatment Triad: We’re pretty much limited to cutting it out, nuking it or poisoning it. All of these are super hard on the body. 
  • Concern for Caregivers: Patients get all the attention, but the lives of millions of caregivers also are negatively affected.
  • Potent Prescription: Exercise has been shown to boost energy, strengthen the immune system, ease depression and much more.

Take a moment in Episode 614 to recognize the power – and responsibility – fitness professionals have to enhance the lives of people navigating cancer and their caregivers. As we come alongside them, we should be sure to embody empathy, flexibility and positivity.

Catch you there.

With grit and gratitude,
Lisé

What’s critical to making, managing and multiplying money? 

Not your financial savvy.

Not your accountant.

It all starts with your beliefs.  

So take inventory of your thoughts in my latest podcast episode, Mindset Matters: The Beliefs That Are Erasing Your Profits, One Thought at a Time. 

In Episode 613, Coach Alina walks you through the importance of evaluating your beliefs about money and adopting a positive money mindset to boost your outlook and profitability.

The self-audit includes: 

  • Know Your Numbers: Create detailed budgets and understand your P & L to make informed business decisions. 
  • Reframe Sales: Sales doesn’t need to be pushy. Instead, be a solution provider passionate about helping people.
  • Bigger ≠ Burnout: Growth is rewarding – and busy. But it’s behavior, not a bigger business, that leads to burnout.
  • Price Right: Low prices mean less profitability. Use a value-based pricing model for smart sustainability.
  • Flip the Script: Shift your money mindset by internalizing positive affirmations and envisioning success.

The bottom line: Every day, you have the power to make decisions that move you forward financially or set you back. Rewrite your limiting beliefs, realize opportunities and reimagine your financial future in Episode 613.

Catch you there.

With grit and gratitude,
Lisé

In Episode 612, join Coach Heather and Coach Allison to explore how expectations should be adjusted during different life seasons and how failure is a fantastic learning opportunity. 

The inside story: 

  • Balance Parallel Priorities: Being a studio owner doesn’t make you a bad parent. Just a busier one.
  • Just Keep Juggling: Keep the glass balls in the air from crashing, and delegate the plastic ones.
  • Embrace Flexibility: Expect changes, adapt and pivot continually and sometimes, just let it go. 
  • Accept Mistakes: Lose the perfectionism. You’re human. Mistakes happen. Learn from them.
  • Fail Forward: Try new things – while managing risk – to grow your business. If they don't work, you’re still ahead.

Plus, discover why you shouldn’t expect a fish to climb a tree and the “failure” that created potato chips! Quit comparing, be more realistic and give yourself grace – all in Episode 612.

Boundaries can get a bad rap.

 

Like they’re selfish. Or prohibitive.

 

But really, they're freeing. 

 

And fundamental. 

 

In my latest podcast episode, Mindset Matters: Building Boundaries Without Guilt, Coach Heather walks us through why boundaries matter, how to set them and how to hold them.

 

In Episode 611, you’ll get 10 tips on establishing and enforcing boundaries. They’re your practical playbook.


More of what we’ll explore: 

  • Classification Counts: Boundaries come in different types? Discover how healthy boundaries trump rigid and porous ones. 

  • Self-care Strategy: Manage stress, reduce overwhelm, seek balance and avoid burnout by outlining your limits. 

  • Assumptions Banished: Set specific expectations and improve communication with your team.

  • Resistance Ready: Boundaries often mean change. Change is hard. Expect some pushback.

  • Guilt Begone: You’re not doing anything wrong, so don’t apologize. Boundaries aren’t about controlling others.


A lack of boundaries means a lack of structure and order. Get empowered to draw some lines and set standards for you and your business in Episode 611.

Hosting studio events is part art, part science.

The science is your plan. 

Don’t underestimate its power.

Hone your skills by tuning into the next segment in our series: Building a brand: The ABCs of Boutique Fitness Marketing: E is for Events.

In Episode 609, Coach Laurial shares the recipe for running successful events that drive people through your doors and keep them coming back. 

The ingredients you’ll need: 

  • Compelling Goal: Identify why you’re hosting the event and what you want out of it. Is it to build community among members, drive new traffic or score some winbacks?
  • Basic Budget: Not trying to be a buzzkill, but money matters. Run the numbers and figure out what you can spend. Then stick to it!
  • Guest List: Your event goal and budget dictate who gets invited (and how many). Existing members, guests, leads, former members or trials?  
  • Engaging Experience: Will you host a special session? Or share a sampler class? A workshop for existing members? Or a group hike? 
  • Staff Stints: Assign team members specific tasks to help plan and run the event. Make sure they’re ready to answer questions, handle signups and mingle.  
  • Master Plan: Think through and write down everything that needs to happen before, during and after the event. Create a detailed checklist. And then adjust the playbook as necessary along the way.

The payback of a plan and process like this? You can use it for every future event. Plug and play, people!

Just when we thought we'd seen it all…2024 rolls in with its bag of surprises.

From the lingering effects of COVID to the brave new world of AI, this year is shaping up to be a rollercoaster of innovation, adaptation, and, yes, a little bit of hustle.

In our latest chat – Episode 596 – we're lucky to have Coach Elle and Alina with us.

They’re diving deep into what's cooking in the UK's fitness kitchen. 

And ready to spill the tea on everything you need to know.

Here’s the lowdown in bite-size bits:

  • Team Challenges: Our crew’s changing. Time to whip up our own all-star trainers?
  • Workout Refresh: Out with the old intensity, in with Pilates, yoga, and all-around wellness.
  • Hybrid Hustle: Remote work’s reshaping our offerings. Flexible classes, anyone?
  • Eco & Inclusion Moves: Small eco steps + a welcoming vibe = big wins.
  • Mental & Physical Fitness: Pairing up with pros to cover all wellness bases.
  • Economic Navigate: Pinching pennies? Offering value and exploring new markets (hey, active elders!) could be key.
  • Tech & AI: Spicing up our offerings with AI but keeping it real.

2024’s all about setting the pace, mixing it up, and staying ahead.

Let’s get to it.

So grab your headphones and let’s dive into Episode 596!

Catch ya there.

With grit and gratitude,

Lisé
