I am a personal trainer primarily working with individuals in their homes. Anyone out there start a successful bootcamp business without a permanent gym space? I have no space to call my own, but could rent space as needed. Would like to chat with others to discuss marketing ideas and strategies. Thanks so much.
I have two outdoor bootcamps along with an in home personal training business
I have 28 people in one and 15 in the other on a regular basis.
I built them by word of mouth, google search (website) and Facebook.
The key is to figure out your target market and offer the bootcamp at “perfect” times.
I am in my fifth year of having these programs and they run very smoothly.
Check out Meetup.com
Possibly post on Craigs List
Post in local publications for your town.
I have a friend who runs an outdoor bootcamp at the downtown waterfront during lunch hour, rain or shine (there is some covered space). Her initial business started with a couple of clients and friends. Once people see exercise in a public place, at a good time, it can grow on its own.
There’s an IDEA video in the library about getting the right permits to use outdoor spaces like parks and playgrounds. I think the title is “Permit Pro” or something close to that. It was a session at IDEA one of the years that I attended and I bought the related DVD.
