This is why gyms Rarely Break $500,000

The last statistic I saw about the average revenue for a personal training gym was around $300,000.
Typically, the owner is lucky to pull a salary they can comfortably live from with revenue like this.
I see tons of guys fly to the $200-$300k mark and get some wind in their sails when they do.
But then it seems like they get stuck.
Like the wind disappears.
Here’s why:
1. You get tired
When you are grinding in the beginning you are running on an incredible stream of Adrenaline.
It’s new and exciting so you push through on very little sleep.
You do everything. You run the sessions, answer the phone and sweep the floor.
You’re happy because you’re making more money than ever.
But this routine starts to wear you down.
It wears you down because this start-up mode is only supposed to last a year, possibly two.
But when you keep working in start-up mode for many years. It starts to cripple your health, energy and love for the business.
You get tired.
When you’re tired it’s hard to make good decisions, the right decisions.
2. You don’t embrace that you’re not a trainer anymore.
I started as a trainer but one of the reasons why I broke was I accepted that I was a businessman in addition to a trainer. Failure to make this acception will keep you treading water.
There are specific skills you need to develop to go from a 200K gym to a 500K gym.
You need to learn to recruit and hire the right people. The people you bring on will set you free, but only if they’re the right people. The guys that struggle the most are the ones that never get past that they may not be the main show anymore.
You need to understand marketing. Not just do marketing, you need to get why things work or don’t work. Too many guys just do stuff. With my Mastermind members, one of my goals is to turn all of them into great marketers.
The low 6 figure hamster wheel is a tough place to play. It impacts your health and puts you one step away from losing it all.
If you’re here, there is a way out.
The way out is not that hard but it will require some different thinking.
P.S. I’ve helped many guys break through this barrier. Stay tuned for a live 2 day event that will be the shift for your breakthrough.
