Why I don't offer drop-in rate options

Since opening in August 2015, I’ve been asked numerous times if I have a drop-in rate for classes. Some of the reasons people give for desiring drop-in rates are that they want to try the class to see if they like it first (understandable) or that they’re too busy to regularly attend classes, which let’s face it, most people are overbooked these days.

Confused on finding a Fitness Professional?

If you live in the Greater Atlanta area, you may or may not know, what you’re up against.

LLC vs. S-Corporation

One of the first questions new clients ask me when forming a new fitness business is whether or not they should form as an LLC or an S-Corporation. These two types of entities are selected by more than 90% of my clients because each is tax favorable to the business owner (both entities have flow through taxation, meaning, the business does not pay tax – but instead the earnings of the business flow through to the member’s/shareholder’s personal tax return where taxes are ultimately paid).

Being an Owner

Ahhh the glorious Owner title.. A blessing to those who know how to use it and a curse to those who crown themselves too early.I started out on the cursed side for sure! I left the gym I was working for in September of last year without a single client to follow me over to my new company.

Lifestyle

Another workout down for my client Melisa. Half way through, in her exhausted state of being she managed to tell me she loves working out.. She said she used to hate it when she was younger because it "hurt." She started a little less than a month ago and is already down 12 lbs and 13 total inches.Everything disappears when I'm working out. All the stress of my day is gone in an instant and the only thing i can think about is what im doing right here and now.

Determination+Hard Work= RESULTS and the cool stuff :)

The determination on this client of mine is like nothing ive ever seen! She came to me wanting to lose weight and tone up... I had no idea how much she would actually put into it but I was ready to run if she was.Day one came and it wasnt looking good... barely a 20 second plank (on the forearms) and 20 squats and she had taken a seat.3 months later..She has bought 3 new pairs each one 2 sizes smaller than the last.She flips 500lb tires.She can do L sits on the parallel bars and is well on her way to doing pullups.

Some Assembly Required

 Throughout the month of December, we have been giving our fitness studio a serious facelift. We replaced the office type flooring with light rubberized gym-flooring and painted the walls and ceiling. While we had everything out and about, it was a good opportunity to re-think the layout of the equipment which resulted in some rearranging of the larger machines.
