Unconventional thinking: Where you need to start

When most people think about growing their fitness business, they think about quick fixes and short-term sales and marketing tactics.

The mantra is “I just need more leads and clients.” 

But the problem with that line of thinking is that it almost always leads to a dead end. 

Truth is, there’s some hard thinking and planning that needs to be done before you hit the accelerator on new client acquisition.

WARNING: If you DON’T review and address these critical areas of your business, things actually get WORSE when you add more clients into the mix (NOT better).

WARNING: If you DON’T review and address these critical areas of your business, things actually get WORSE when you add more clients into the mix (NOT better).

Where most people get it wrong

  • I just need clients!
  • How can I get more clients?
  • But really, where do I find more clients?

Where you need to begin...

  • Understand the “money math” that drives PROFITABILITY and cash flow with your business model
  • Get real SYSTEMS in place that support increased retention AND new client acquisition every single month
  • Increase your leadership and TEAM capacity so your business and life get better (not worse) as you grow

We know this sounds like the opposite of what would seem to make sense with “conventional thinking”, but that’s why it’s so important you hear this message.

When things aren’t where you want them to be with your business, it’s easy to think, “Oh, I just need more clients. More clients will mean more revenue, and that will solve all my problems!”

But we’re here to warn you now that this line of thinking can KILL your business.

Don’t settle for surface level thinking!

Do the work with UNCONVENTIONAL thinking to identify root causes, and address critical areas that MUST be handled in order to create lasting profit, revenue, and happiness with your business.

Confusion vs Clarity

Every fitness business needs good answers to key questions that drive your business forward. 

You likely have answers to these questions right now, they’re just not as good as they need to be in order to grow to the next level. But when you commit to doing the work required, you’ll consistently move from CONFUSION to CLARITY.

Each of the NPE 5 CORE DISCIPLINES™ aligns to a powerful business growth question:

  1. What does success look like and how will you get there?
  2. Where do you find (and how will you sign up) new prospective clients?
  3. How do you serve the market in a unique and powerful way?
  4. How will you increase revenue, cash flow, and profitability to ensure continued success?
  5. How will you look after yourself, have fun, and enjoy the journey? 

As you get better answers to these questions, you will have increased FOCUS.

FOCUS increases POWER

That focus will give you increased POWER to do all the good things you want to do (and more) in taking your business (and life) to the next level.
