(Kerry Anne) I know this is a huge ask but… I would love for the major brands to not offer free workouts… It makes it really hard for a small scale fitness professional to get paid when they can get workouts for free. I am heartbroken for all of the trainers that work in gyms that no longer have a home and are saturated with big budget franchises who are offering everything For free. It’s like telling people to help local restaurants and then a major franchise restaurant like Chick-Fil-A coming in and offering to feed everyone for free.
So many industries are hurting but I don’t want people to forget about the fitness industry.
P.S. I don’t have a problem with major brands offering free workouts to the people who have already subscribed…
The shutdowns might last a long time for the fitness industry, which will tank if we keep making everything free. We are all going to need motivation. For us in the industry, it is compensation. For our members it will be through the personal online connections of live classes and sessions.
