I’m renting space at a Fit Body Boot Camp that just opened. I want to teach boxing to people who need to lose 50 pounds or more. We are both struggling to find clients. She has done everything Fit Body has told her and not much has happened. I’m using Groupon and want to target Weight Watchers if they let me. Any ideas on how to get more clients?
I am using social media with expectations for it to start slow. Maybe I should shoot higher, but I’m not in a hurry.
Previously, as many others, I started in a gym, and slowly built my own clientele while working at the gym, again without overhead.
This is meant to be encouraging, most people take on overhead once they already have a client base. That’s what I did too. Starting from scratch with overhead is more of a challenge, as you are learning.
I agree with people who need to lose 50+ being more intimidated. Again this is meant to be encouraging, so you know what you are facing is NORMAL. Try what Martin said, and yes it can be awkward, which is NORMAL 🙂
“Read” people and figure out what approach you think they will be comfortable with. For people who seem uncomfortable with boxing, talk about basic movements, feeling good, increasing endurance….
As Natalie said, “keep trying…”
All the Best!
