Yes, I have for years. It’s a great way to share ideas, tips and suggestions for clients. Often classes or sessions are so focused on exercise, that the blog is a nice way to share a little more of your personality and insight on various topics.
My topics usually revolve around pre or postnatal fitness or being a healthy role model.
I’ve been blogging since 2005 at therenegadewriter.com, but I recently started a wellness blog called happyfitcoaching.com that’s already gaining some traction thanks to the network I’d already built up as a writer on Facebook, Twitter, etc. I blog about mind-body, fitness, and wellness topics that help people with anxiety and depression — and people who are just tired, stressed, and busy — install healthy habits into their lives.
I’ve written on these topics for years for magazines like Women’s Health and WebMD, so I’m excited that I can now write whatever I want, whenever I want to — rather than having to pitch magazines and deal with the inevitable rejections. Loving it!
Because I am a gym owner and operator who also does software, I primarily blog about fitness business issues, promotions, controversial subjects, cleaning, marketing, sales, and tech stuff. I blog about anything that gym owners can face while in the state of business. I like to blog about new and old fitness subjects and see, theoretically, how they could be implemented at my current gym and how it would affect current business standards. IdeaFit is a great community for brainstorming and feedback for fitness subjects!
