    Sean Carroll and James Batey, owners of Rebuild Health and Fitness, Brisbane, QLD, Australia, thought their business relied too much on their own efforts. They were always on the gym floor, or finding and signing up clients, and otherwise IN the business all the time. 
    The good news was they were making money. But there were no systems and the business wasn’t organized. They came to NPE for clarity, systems, and organization.

    They rebranded the business and changed their programming to provide massive value to professionals with children. Client retention went way up, and they were able to charge more for their services. 
    When COVID-19 hit, instead of shutting the business down, they saw it as a huge opportunity. 
    They installed a new sales system and made premium offers to their new ideal clients. When Sean and James reopened their business, they signed up 38 people in the first month and their business grew 140% from the previous 12 months (even during COVID-19).
    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    How Sean and James started their journey as studio/gym ownersThe importance of getting a clear vision of who you want to serveHow aligning your messaging and programming to an ideal client attracts more of the best people and allows you to serve them betterHow getting disciplined about numbers leads to higher levels of successHow they recognized their strengths and leveraged them as leaders How they decided to shift their focus during COVID-19 and took massive actions for re-openingHow having a business coach made a difference in their journey to successAnd much, much more ...

    Ep 19 – How Hassan Abdallah Rebranded Away From Crossfit and Raised Revenues and Profit On Reopening After COVID-19

    Ep 19 – How Hassan Abdallah Rebranded Away From Crossfit and Raised Revenues and Profit On Reopening After COVID-19

    Hassan Abdallah owned a CrossFit gym in Kogarah, NSW, Australia. But he began to wonder if he was selling his business short … While young people and the athletes loved his CrossFit gym, other people needed more attention. 
    The pandemic lockdown offered him an opportunity to work through the details. Working with his NPE coaches, he rebranded his business. 
    He shifted his business model from group training to personal/small group training. He switched from CrossFit athletes to busy professionals and parents. That allowed him to give individual clients more time and attention, with extra programming and nutrition coaching. 
    In fact, he capped the total member base for his business to 85 (as opposed to 98 prior to the pandemic and a high of 120). 
    With a greater client experience/quality of service to offer, he was able to raise his rates. That improved profitability, and even during the pandemic, he was able to bring in more revenue (from $28k ‘before’ to $32k ‘after’). 
    Now the business is running near full capacity and he’s more confident than ever about the future of his business and his ability to serve his clients.
    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    The keys to success when you’re rebranding your fitness business, shifting your services, and how to effectively communicate with your clientsThe benefits of downsizing your classes and focusing on delivering extreme value to clientsThe power of practicing faith and realizing your vision of your business is possible despite obstaclesHow Hassan and his team overcame the fear of salesHow to stay engaged with your clients so they can see results and stick around longerThe importance of being open to feedback from your coaches, asking your community for help, and pivoting when necessary to allow yourself to grow personally and professionallyAnd much much more…

TBPFitness ,

Awesome insight!

I just began listening to the show. I was inspired by all the fitness entrepeneurs chasing down their dreams. In a competitive marketplace, it's refreshing to have successful people share their success. Thank you for the show. And thank you for sharing so many inspiring stories.

Career saver!

I was so excited to become a personal trainer and start changing lives, but when I got my certification I quickly found I had no clear vision for exactly how I was going to do that, who I was going to do it for, or where I was going to find them. Not to mention, I only knew technical training theory and only had an elementary understanding of business strategy. I had no mentors or supportive community to even point me in the right direction. I began to think I was doomed to fail. I’ve been so scared and self conscious, floating in a sea of competition that seems to know how to do everything I don’t. It almost seemed hopeless... until NPE came into my life and offered me an answer to every single one of my questions!!! Words cannot express the relief and excitement I feel for my future in this industry! I can’t wait to devour every last scrap of content 😭
