The gym and fitness business world moves fast. If you think that’s the understatement of the year then this blog is for you. Because we know how difficult and time consuming it can be to stay on top of all the latest gym and fitness business industry news and trends, we decided to put this list of industry podcasts together.
These podcasts aren’t about eating right or how to squeeze in those last few reps, they’re focused on running a gym or fitness business. Between the four of these podcasts they cover a full spectrum of fitness business related topics such as retention, increasing revenue, the latest in software, interviews with important industry voices, and more.
If you've never listened to a podcast before, that's ok! Podcasts have been around for a while now, but they still feel out of reach for some. If you think of it this way, a podcast is just a prerecorded radio show that listeners can download whenever they desire.
- How to listen to podcasts on iPhone/iPad and Apple computers.
- How to listen to podcasts on Google Play (Android).
The list may seem short at only four podcasts, but that’s because we instituted two criteria:
- The podcast must be updated regularly.
- The podcast must have some production value. (At the very least this means the podcast needs to have nice audio quality.)
Listening to podcasts can be a great way to spark new ideas, confirm things that you’re already doing are best practices, or even as a support group to let you know that others are out there going through some of the same ups and downs running a gym or fitness business as you are.
We also love these gym and fitness business podcasts because you can get so much information in such a short amount of time. Just listening to one episode a day is about 45-minutes to an hour of free ideas and education. Bonus: You can actually speed up podcasts so they play at 1.25x - 2x the speed which means you can vacuum up even more knowledge in shorter amounts of time. However, we definitely don't recommend the 2x setting unless you're a huge Alvin and the Chipmunks fan.
Go ahead, give these podcasts a listen while you’re doing the dishes, cleaning out the car, exercising, or completing any other task that may have normally had your ears filled with Green Day or Beyonce.
