Niki has been a client, a studio owner, and a coach in boutique fitness for over a decade, and she can’t think of an industry she'd rather be in. Her favorite part about coaching and studio ownership are the same: she loves supporting studio owners as they push past their limits and achieve their goals. Niki became a coach because she was regularly asked, “how did you do that!?” by other studio owners who were drowning in the day-to-day responsibilities of business ownership but didn’t have the support to grow their studio to its potential. She created Limitless Studio to partner with owners who have a vision for their business and are ready to implement systems to build the studio of their dreams.Read More

Without a north star, your fitness business is likely to end up spinning its wheels. Whether you are a yoga studio, fitness studio or solo fit biz owner we will come together to make sure you have clarity around your 'what', ’why’, and ‘core values’ to manifest your business dreams.
Vision, mission, and values are vital to your business - even at an early stage. By asking ourselves to consider ‘Who do we serve? Who are the people we are trying to help? What is it that we bring that is special and unique?’ Can be a powerful way of exploring the core purpose of our fitness businesses.
As an entrepreneur, you know the value of great ideas. But that's only the beginning. To put those great ideas into action, you need the right systems and people for your small business. This is where many entrepreneurs begin to stumble. Innovating is one thing. Managing dozens of people and tasks — and keeping them all aligned with your business goals — is entirely another.
For that, you need a powerful system that automates, organizes, and streamlines your business. Enter EOS®: the Entrepreneurial Operating System! This is not software: it's a framework comprising simple concepts and practical tools to optimize your team. If you've been spinning your wheels or feeling frustrated in your business, EOS® could be just the thing for you. In this session, Chris Beer, EOS® Integrator Mastery Forum member, will discuss how this framework can be applied to your boutique fitness studio.
Ready to sell with ZERO sleaze? Join Nicole D'Andrea for an interactive webinar on developing a high-converting, client-centric sales process. You'll learn to leverage the power of automation AND the personal touch boutique fitness clients are desperately craving. The results? More profits and more freedom to do what you love.
What KPI reports do I need to run to make good business decisions and how? What goals do I need to establish to break even? Be profitable? Benchmarks?
Compiling your financial numbers can be overwhelming and time consuming BUT they are so important when it comes to budgeting and making decisions from a financial place and not just an emotional one. KPI’s are vital when it comes to pricing your services to ensure that expenses are met (breakeven) and profitability is reached (goals). Setting daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, annual goals can help take the overwhelmingness out and provide day-to-day checklists to move forward thus using data to embrace and transform and take out the fear.
You’ve spent time and money finding new clients, now how do you keep them? Let’s talk about the most effective fitness retention strategies to make sure your members are committed and engaged for years to come.
