Someone asked me the other day what Coaches Congress is all about. People also give their own feedback about Coaches Congress and what it´s worth to them. Helping owners and coaches grow as leaders Helping gyms survive Creating connections Building relationships Sharing knowledge There are so many things. But something
There are two very common reactions when people listen to presentations or attend workshops; Looking for affirmation. You want the presenter to talk about things that you are already doing so that you can get your knowledge or your processes affirmed. ”That was a great presentation! I feel that we
The most common struggles that I talk to gymowners about are versions of the following theme “We don´t have/get enough members” and it´s connected to revenue of course. Struggling gymowners who reach out to me need more money… There are no members signing up There are too many members leaving The
We are nearing the start of a new year and my Facebook and IG feed is filled with gyms offering gym memberships 50-70% off if
I believe that the more strategic and the more important role a person has in your business, the more coaching they need from you. It also makes sense to me to spend time and effort on staff members that wants more than just group coaching.
You have to tell people how they would benefit from doing business with you. You have to tell them, and tell them often, what you are doing to solve their problems. Who else is better suited, than you and your staff, to do that?
We are doing ourselves a disservice if we let prejudices govern our acts and thoughts. Be open minded and try to have a beginner´s mindset and you will be a better leader for it. Base your decisions more on data and facts than on opinion and feeling.
The opportunity cost of not working out is massive and we all understand that, but do you understand, and are you ready to accept the opportunity cost of never going anywhere to get new input that will challenge, motivate and help you?
Whether you are a struggling business owner or your business is booming, there will always be value for you and your staff at events like Coaches Congress. You just have to learn to watch for it and to plan for it.
When arranging an event like the Coaches Congress, I always try to reach out to other gymowners and tell them I want them to come.

You should create a system for gathering information from potential clients and you must design packages that help them. For lots of people, joining group classes is not even a goal. You should stop thinking of group training as the “ultimate end goal” for your clients.
When you run a business, it´s important to understand your market and to understand your own services. You seldom see premium brands giving discounts or giving things away for free, do you? The reason is, they don´t HAVE to because their brand, and their services/products are so strong that people are willing to pay for them.
You need to understand and accept the role of being the expert. If you are comfortable in your belief that your services are great and that you know how to best help your clients, then it gets easy to say: ”based on your current status and your goals, this is what I recommend for you”
When you offer No Sweat Intros, you give your clients the best possible help and you also increase your revenue, IF you have packaged your services well and IF you offer PT and/or nutrition.
Joining a mentor program, or finding a business coach, is just like starting a gym membership, you have to WORK for your results.
There will always be things that you can control. You can always control your own behaviour and your own efforts, if your systems are good there is a high probability that you will keep succeeding even in harsh times.
Back in the days my gym Escapist CrossFit collaborated with one of the biggest providers on the market for gym access memberships. It was a

What kind of owner do you want to be? What kind of life do you want? What kind of opportunities do you want to give your staff? What kind of people do you want as members and how do you want to serve them?

I am a mentor because I want to help gymowners let go of that mindset and realise their potential. I am a mentor because I want to CHALLENGE that mindset and those beliefs
The cost of NOT publishing more on media platforms can hardly be measured! Even if being active on social media “only” give you one more client per month, that is twelve clients per year. How many years have you been running your gym? You do the math on that…
being a business owner also means that you should accept the responsibility to build a solid business. A business that would survive without your constant overwatch.
