#AskAchieve 29: All About Running a Fitness Business!

What's up, Achievers?! A mega episode for you today for all you fitness coaches, gym owners, and clinic owners out there! We get a TON of business questions and requests for consultations out there so we decided to give you a full episode on all things fitness business! Lauren and I cover our top 3 marketing strategies as well as our thoughts on how to best spread your message and brand on social media! Having said that, we also talked at length about how "lead-gen" and "marketing" and "social media" are all super "sexy" topics to talk about and focus on; however, these are all moot points if your client or member experience is not up to snuff. Four books we referenced to help out with this are: Raving Fans, The Starbucks Experience, The Nordstrom Way, and Delivering Happiness. Finally, while this is a great starting point, we couldn't possibly cover everything we wanted to in detail. If you're looking for more contextual or individualized advice, please DM us on Instagram @achievefitnessboston for more information on our business consults or you can check this link: https://www.achievefitnessboston.com/collections/achieve-collection/products/60-minute-phone-consultation We hope you enjoyed this episode!

#AskAchieve 52: Fit 101 Workshop Recap, Bar Positioning for Squats, Training an "Older" Population, and When to Switch Up Your Program!

What's up, Achievers?! Super fun episode for you all today where we recap some of the highlights from this past weekend of our Fit 101 Workshop! Quick shoutout to our coaches, Sarah and Ted, for doing a phenomenal job! Also, super fun to finally meet some people who we've been corresponding with quite a bit on Instagram. In our first question, we talk about how to position a barbell on your back depending on what stance you're using (6:31). Next, we talk about how to go about training someone who is older and slightly more deconditioned - it was asked from someone who was about to work with their father, which is pretty cool (11:28)! Lastly, we discuss when to go about switching up your program after you've been on it for a little while. We go on some tangents like the concept of WODs and "muscle confusion" and soreness (17:36). We hope you enjoyed this episode! If you did, we'd love you forever if you left a rating and review on iTunes - it seriously helps us out a lot! Please DM us @achievefitnessboston on Instagram if you have any questions you'd like us to answer. Until next time, Peace, Love, and Muscles! ...
