Humans have an instinct to form groups based on shared experiences and understanding. Especially in the fitness industry, where clients can feel vulnerable working out with a group of strangers, it is important for studio owners to encourage a strong sense of community. Providing the tools necessary for students to form fitness “families” has an incredible effect on retention. Happy clients will keep coming back to your studio and can even spread positive word of mouth to others, drawing new leads!
