Whether your goal is to open a new business, optimize the studio you have now, or take your profit up a few notches, Studio Shape Up provides the information you need to make your clients succeed and your studio prosper. There is no reason why fitness businesses shouldn’t be thriving. This guide raises the bar for studio owners and simply leaps over the “skills approach” other books preach about. In building her own studio, Chelsea Streifeneder’s goal was to build a community of happy people who know how to play as hard as they work and who understand that fun is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, and now she aims to share her tools with others along with what is and isn’t working for her. Studio Shape Up is like having your own personal business advocate, telling you exactly the right moves to make at the right time to achieve the greatest possible results. This timely gem changes the way studio owners can build, grow, and make their business the best it’s ever been!
