A fitness-based business can thrive from home due to the technology available. Social distancing has changed the way that fitness professionals train their clients. Below are tips to succeed while running your business from home.
Try to Fill Certain Hours With Fitness Classes
Fitness classes can be a great way to bring in clients on a regular basis. The beauty of these is that they can be broadcasted via Zoom to those that are still social distancing. There are so many closures around the country that you might build a large base of clients from around the country. People recommend instructors that they enjoy working out with especially if you run spin or yoga classes. Holding these sessions at times when most people are not working is an option. Later classes can also be enjoyed by those on the other coast. Marketing your group fitness classes needs to be done by listing your classes on the appropriate fitness platforms.
Allocate Personal Training Hours
There are those that might take individual sessions that pay very well. Your business can also thrive if you give specialized workouts to athletes of a specific sport. Training vertical jumping and strength for basketball is a great example. An expert trainer can make immense amounts hourly and likely will take part in seminars with other fitness professionals. Home sessions can be possible if teaching yoga or taking someone through a bodyweight circuit workout. You are going to have to market yourself online on platforms like social media. A client that has shown amazing progress in their body composition or explosive athletic performance should be highlighted.
Build a Gym on Your Property
Building a gym on your property where you can do private sessions might be restricted by COVID-19 restrictions. The ability to be able to clean each piece of equipment after use by a person can offer comfort to those worried about using a commercial gym. Renting out your space for other fitness classes can be a great way to earn money from the gym without doing actual work. A local swim team might need a place to do conditioning outside of the water a few days a week, renting the gym to them can be done. Metal buildings can be a great affordable option to build a gym on your property that can be used for personal use and your fitness-based business. Look into the proper licenses and insurance as your property might not be zoned for any type of commercial use.
You can do extremely well financially, without leaving home, with your fitness-based business. Take the time to truly explore revenue options during this uncertain time.
Look Into Various Ways to Earn
Programming workouts for various clients can easily be done. You can likely write up months and months of workouts in an hour with various volume/intensity levels being hit at certain times. You might also understand nutrition and can recommend certain meals to clients. If you are not a certified nutritionist, you can give advice but cannot be titled as a nutritionist. Telling a client to follow the Ketogenic diet could help their overall quality of life and maximize their fitness gains/help them reach their goals.
