What trends do you see most affecting the future state of the Boutique Fitness industry?
Mainstream population adopting wellness and fitness, group exercise proliferation into different lifestyle levels (e.g. professional networking, social events, dating, employment team building activities etc), in-home exercise market share, value-based big box gym market share and outdoor physical activity adoption.
Who or what inspires you as a business owner and why?
I’m inspired to make a difference in people’s lives. The most fulfilling aspect of being a boutique fitness owner is having an impact on lives and creating an environment where powerful transformational changes take place, where physical activity begets physical health, which leads to mental, emotional and spiritual health. I also love creating vibrant and thriving communities that strengthen and deepen relationships among members for purposes of achieving common interests and goals. Group exercise is a phenomenon that creates a sense of belonging to a community, which inspires and motivates people and creates energy that pushes people to achieve their goals and become healthier on all levels.
