Experts estimate that four out of five people will experience low back pain over their lifetime (most of which is preventable). One of the primary causes are dysfunctional glute firing patterns. While mobility techniques are an important step in overcoming the sitting disease, one major reason for lost hip mobility is poor lumbopelvic stability & glute activation. Adding more ROM on top of an unstable pelvis is dangerous, increases the likelihood of chronic pain & decreases functional performance. Using the Hyperice© Sphere & Vyper, you will learn how to assess postural imbalances and correct mobility deficits.

If you own a fitness studio and have worked hard to build up your client base (and revenue), then you’ve sacrificed and succeeded where many before you have failed. You’ve not only SURVIVED the journey of building a successful fitness business… but you’ve achieved much success along the way. But it doesn’t always feel that way...

Studio owners face very real (and TOUGH!) challenges every day. All too often they are overworked and underpaid, feel fatigued and frustrated, and question if it’s truly possible to “have it all” when it comes to having a great business (and life!). Before investing in another ‘marketing company’ or ‘BLOWING UP’ your business, learn the business strategies and plan that will increase your power and allow you to grow from disengaged operator to re-engaged business owner with time and financial freedom.

Most fitness professionals and business owners barely make a profit. They work long hours. They struggle to find new clients, effectively serve the clients they’ve got, and build a team.

Result: They end up sacrificing their health, relationships, and happiness.

Successful fitness business owners tell a different story. They have money and the time to enjoy it. They work smarter, not harder. That’s why they attract top paying clients who stay for years, build a team that frees them to step out of operations, and take home 6 figures–while creating an amazing lifestyle.

The good news is you can (and will) grow like the successful ones … with the right systems, tools, and support around you. Join NPE at the “How To Write a Fitness Business Plan To 2-4x Your Profits, Clients, And Revenue” one-day intensive workshop. Give your business the fuel it needs to drive more new clients, sales, and profits … while also putting systems in place that will increase your long-term success (and fun!).

Learning Objectives:
1. Create a 5-step fitness business profit plan that gives you a path forward to recapture the fun and excitement of owning your own fitness business.
2. Learn how to increase your cash flow and profitability by improving margins, pricing and packaging, and managing cost structures to increase net profit month-over-month.
3. Discover the value creation model that improves your client experience and delivers more value to boost retention, increase renewals, and gain more referrals (so you grow your business from the inside out!)
4. Develop a marketing and sales plan to gain more top-paying clients that stay for yearsclick the link to register: www.MCMPMontreal.com

You are likely very familiar with the benefits of HIIT and incorporate it into your training sessions and/or classes already. HIIT however, can be intimidating for some, and a one hour timeslot of this nature can be far too fatiguing for many group participants.

Options will be provided making this session appropriate for both beginner and advanced participants. Attend this session to bring combinations and movements back to your own classes and clients.
