Skills That Pay The Bills


As a gym owner, you likely started your business with the goal of helping others achieve their fitness goals. However, as you grow your business, you may realize that the purpose of expanding your gym is not just to make more money, but also to improve the quality of your life. A successful gym means happier employees, more profit, and growth in other aspects of your business. Along the way, you will acquire valuable skill sets that can also spill over and benefit your personal life.

In this article, we will discuss the skill sets that gym owners acquire and how they can use them to grow their businesses.

Marketing Skills

Marketing is one of the most critical skill sets that a gym owner can learn to grow their facility. While many gyms believe that their marketing strategy is word of mouth, this approach limits their growth potential. Gym owners need to develop, learn, implement, and benefit from a marketing strategy to achieve growth. The quality of the fundamentals of business and your ability to do it repetitively is what matters most.

Gym owners are probably one of the most skill-dense entrepreneurs out there. They acquire skills in digital marketing, email and text message automation, Zapier, connecting it to Google Sheets, and more. While it's a necessity for gym owners to learn many skills because the revenue that comes in on a gym just doesn't allow them to outsource a lot of stuff, it's also a benefit in life. Gym owners are pretty impressive in terms of their digital marketing chops. They install automation and pipelines and automate follow-up emails. Automation is born from necessity because gym owners get tired of sending follow-up emails, so they utilize the system.

To acquire marketing skills, gym owners should first understand Facebook marketing, Google AdWords, and how to set up and manage a campaign. But before doing all of that, they need to know the numbers of their business and the key performance indicators (KPIs) that are driving the business. Understanding the KPIs of your gym is crucial to being successful as a gym owner. If you don't understand the sales components, marketing, and the numbers of your business, the rest of its just guesswork. Therefore, it is essential to understand where the numbers of your business are coming from and going, and how they're impacting the business as a whole.

Financial Skills

Most of the skill sets for running a successful gym are financially rooted. Therefore, it is essential to develop your financial skills to make the most of your gym. You can hire a coach or purchase a coaching program or training program to learn these skills.

When you have enough money, you can outsource the work to an agency. However, until you can afford to outsource, you have to do the work yourself. You have to burden the responsibility of running your gym and understanding the numbers, marketing, and sales.


In conclusion, as a gym owner, you need to develop your financial and marketing skills to acquire more clients and grow your business. It's not just about throwing more people in the front door; it's about having the systems in place, the skill sets to make the most of it, and understanding the numbers of your business.

The purpose of growing a business is to increase the quality of life, and gym owners acquire valuable skill sets along the way. Marketing and financial skills are the most important skills that gym owners can learn to grow their business. Understanding your KPIs and the numbers of your business is crucial to being successful as a gym owner. So, take the time to develop these skills and use them to achieve success in both your business and personal life.
