    Facility Layout Design For Group Fitness

    Facility Layout Design For Group Fitness

    This is another episode of Live Problem Solving where I take you behind-the-scenes of how I actually help my clients solve their business problems.



    Today, we are looking at a new location that one of my client's is signing a lease for, and he wants to re-imagine class flow and training floor layout.

    The only two group fitness franchises I would invest in…

    Industrious 

    If you want a well-organized, high operational capacity, barbell-based group fitness experience (aka CrossFit without the stupid shit), then you need to look into Industrious.  Click here and I’ll personally connect you with the Industrious franchise team to learn more.

    MADabolic

    If you’re looking for one of the fastest growing brands in the boutique fitness space that leverages gritty branding, strength-focused programming (but without the barbell and other space suckers) and has over 30 opened locations nationwide, then you’ll definitely want to get in touch with the MADabolic franchise team by clicking here. 

    —-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I solve problems in your business and make you more money.  Guaranteed. 

    For over a decade I’ve been working with gym owners (via one-on-one consulting) to help create tailored solutions to solve their business problems, engineer the game plan and empower them to execute the strategy.

    Stop wishing your business problems are going to magically go away.  

    Invest in your business and let me solve your problems and optimize your business fast and efficiently. 

    We’ll work together daily/weekly, with a monthly call until the problem is solved and then I want you to fire me.  Because this is YOUR business, I’m just here to solve a specific problem and then get out of your way.

    Learn more about what it’s like for us to work together.

    Need help leasing or buying a building?

    If you’re looking for help with your next lease or if you want us to help you along the journey of buying a building - ⁠head over to www.gymrealestate.co and book a Discovery Call.

    Zoning May Not Be Your Issue. Check The Use Of Your Building.

    Zoning May Not Be Your Issue. Check The Use Of Your Building.

    Most gym owners are experienced enough to check for zoning compliance before signing a lease. However, zoning isn't always the issue.

Clífton ,

Best info for a gym owner

This is hands down the top choice for gym owners seeking actionable advice. Stu provides practical insights that can be immediately implemented to enhance operations and drive growth. Stu also has some of the best in the field on his shows to compliment his extensive knowledge on every topic/issue a gym owner would need help with.

BradTill ,

Way More Helpful Than the $350/month fitness mastermind group I was in!

Have been listing to podcast for several months and enrolled in MicroGyM University recently. Way more valuable than the $350 a month mastermind I was in. Our two personal training studios are benefiting greatly from Stu’s content.

Neil Sh. ,

He’s been there. Experienced it. And knows his stuff.

Solid podcast! Not only does he know his stuff, but it’s also crazy entertaining. Keep crushing it.
