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?

Don’t play darts while blindfolded.

Especially against a moving target.

Looking for luck to hit the bullseye. 

Sounds obvious, right? 

But, y’all, that’s what you’re doing if you’re running your business without goals.

Play to win instead by establishing goals that drive you and your studio. In Episode 607, join coaches Josh and Peter for the next segment in Building a brand: The ABCs of Boutique Fitness Marketing: G is for Growth Goals. 

The rules to play:

  • Think Big to Small: Identify your big goal first, then determine the intentions, strategies and tactics to get there. 
  • Get S.M.A.R.T.: If your goals aren’t specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and timely, game over.
  • Be Relentlessly Realistic: Lose the constant state of overwhelm and guilt that you’re underachieving.
  • Fail Better: Failure is a valuable learning opportunity. Capitalize on it. 
  • Celebrate More: Reward yourself and your team for small and big wins to fuel motivation.

Plus, figure out if your BHAG. And snag some recommendations of powerful reads that can transform your life and your business.

Sharpen your skills now with Episode 607

Catch you there.

With grit and gratitude,
Lisé

🚀 Branding: The Heartbeat of Your Studio

In this episode, I dive deep into the essence of branding and why it's so much more than a snazzy logo or catchy tagline. Branding is the soul of your studio, the story that captivates your clients, and the experience that keeps them coming back for more.

🌟 Stand Out or Sit Down

I'll let you in on how top-tier fitness brands like Nike and Alo Yoga have crafted immersive experiences that go beyond the gym walls. It's about creating a lifestyle that your clients crave. And guess what? I've been there, done that, and I'm here to show you how to shine in your own unique way.

💡 From Challenges to Triumphs

Hear about my own transformation from a studio owner to a founder without a team or budget, and how I turned my passion into wildly profitable ventures. If I can do it, so can you!

🌍 Branding Without Borders

Join me as I share my latest branding adventure in the Middle East, proving that a great brand knows no limits. It's all about crafting an identity that's as unique as the location itself.

🛠️ The Blueprint to Branding Success

I'm not just talking theory; I'm giving you actionable strategies. From the importance of a comprehensive brand guide to the role of a creative director, I've got the insider info you need to build a brand that resonates.

Don't miss out on the chance to transform your boutique fitness studio into a brand that leaves a lasting legacy. Tune in to EPISODE 605 and let's make some branding magic happen!

With grit and gratitude,
Lisé

Are your team members evolving?

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 this return of 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.

With grit and gratitude,

Lisé
