How to Get Gym Customers Back after the Covid-19 Pandemic, from Three People Who Are Doing It

Apr 6, 2021 | Podcast | 0 comments

Where are we in the fight against the pandemic?

It seems like things are improving, doesn’t it? 

This week, I invited three fitness professionals from around the country onto the Optimal Aging podcast to discuss this particular moment in time — from their own perspectives — just for a quick pulse-check. 

Two are longtime owners of successful fitness facilities that cater to the over-50 market – Detric Smith of Results Performance Training in Virginia; and Aimee Sinopoli of Cutting Edge Fitness Center in Massachusetts. The third is a business coach for gyms all across America, Justin Hanover of  Fitness Revolution.

They’re seeing people coming back — including those in the”older” demographic. And, in our conversation, they share the challenges and successes they’re facing now as they continue to adapt, communicate and thrive.
