It sounds like a lot of fun to start a Bootcamp fitness business. Seeing your clients build teamwork and become physically fit and mentally active at the same time is the most fulfilling thing you can do. Despite the fact that there are a lot of frustrations and time-consuming ventures one will inevitably encounter behind the rewarding results.
Keeping track of so many angles that may result in business closure if they are not handled well is one of the things you as a Bootcamp owner need to do. Unfortunately, there are quite a number of entrepreneurs who have opted to close their places after a few months. I believe they did not want to give up, but the difficulties they faced left them with no choice.
It may be a consolation to let you know that you are not the only one experiencing difficulties when it comes to fitness Bootcamp. There are many Bootcamp venturers out there who face the same issues as you do. That is why we wrote this article. We wanted to help Bootcamp businesses survive season after season and master all of its twists and turns. Particularly for first-timers.

The Hawaii Vacation Client Contest Method
I have a recipe I can’t wait to share with you. Fit Body Boot Camp has a referral contest going on where everybody is committed for 30 days. How does that sound?
Everyone is working double time in order to win the “Hawaiian Body Fit” prize. Their objective is to gather as many referrals as possible in 30 days. A client who attracts the most referrals will win a trip to Hawaii. Awesome!
Furthermore, I even produced customized flyers in which I not only explained every mechanism but also put each and every client’s face on a hot supermodel’s body posing on a Hawaiian beach. Can you picture that? That’s how I made it more fun.
I updated my clients daily with the competition results via emails and text messages, just as I had done with my previous referral competitions. They were excited and motivated daily as a result.
I wanted as many clients on board as possible for this contest, so I offered a half-off boot camp service fee for the next month to everyone who referred a friend who signed up. Besides the winner getting a free trip to Hawaii, of course. It’s a great deal for everyone.
No matter what happens, clients will still work hard to bring in as many referrals as possible, because it feels like they are still victorious in this competition no matter what, their efforts will never be in vain.
I distributed $100 plastic gift cards to all of my boot camp members. And here are my top new out-of-the-box client-getting strategies. Always remember that the key is to take a MASSIVE ACTION.
Rock on! Steve
