Lyfestyle 180: Is a Boutique Fitness Studio Right for You?
Is a boutique fitness studio right for you? Is it right for your goals?
In this post, we're going to discuss the benefits of boutique fitness and what to expect. This is part two of our Lyfestyle 180 Series.
In case you missed the previous post of our series, here it is:
But first, before we discover if boutique fitness is right for you, I've got another question for you.
Have you ever signed up for a gym membership, pumped the first week or two, only to eventually stop going?
Come on, be honest. It's OK.
According to a study at Berkley, an average of 67% of gym memberships are never used. Many people start the New Year in the gym and end their February right where they started the previous year.
Most new members don't even bother to cancel the membership. Because that would be like...admitting failure. And who wants to do that?
So, instead of canceling, they do the next best thing — hold on to the membership while it quietly drains their bank account.
Can you relate? Well, if so, don't feel ashamed.
It's really easy to do this with a traditional gym. And because they're so big, they probably don't even notice you're gone — plus they'll take your money with no problem.
Might a boutique fitness studio be a better alternative?
What is a boutique fitness studio?
A boutique fitness studio is generally viewed as a small gym (800 - 3500 square feet) that focuses on group exercise and specializes in one or two fitness areas.
Now, not all boutique studios are created equal. Despite what you've heard, we're here to share what Lyfestyle 180 offers and whether we're right for you and your fitness goals.
Here are some advantages to joining a women's boutique fitness studio like Lyfestyle 180:
1. Attention: We specialize in women's fitness and self-care. Meaning, we give attention to you, your goals, and needs. Also, with our specialized method, you will hit your goals a lot faster. Yes, you heard us right! While other gyms might provide generic workout advice, we provide specific solutions for you regarding your health. We have clients who are mothers, grandmothers, clients with chronic illnesses, etc. Because our owner and trainers are women, we are well-versed in our clients' needs.
2. Customer Service: One of the benefits of being a smaller gym is building personal relationships. We are a phone call away. During your time as a member, you will get to know us and we will get to know you. Also, this helps with accountability. When you know your trainer and they know you, it's much harder to skip out on a session. We know the tricks :) We aim to provide you the best while you're with us. And if not, we'd like to know directly from you where we can improve.
3. Community: Here at Lyfestyle 180, we love the community of sisters we're bringing together. In group training sessions, you will meet women of all backgrounds. And most of them have one common goal — to live and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Our growing community of women is something we're proud of. We've found that this helps with accountability too. So, no more sneaking out unnoticed.
