3 Questions to Ask Before Delegating as a Fitness Business Owner

For all intents and purposes, a new business venture is a close to a child as you can get. You’ve created it from nothing, helped it grow, and now it’s off and running….with a lot of the legwork done by you, the business owner. If you feel like you need a support system behind you to get more hours back into your day, you may be in that transitional period when it’s time to start delegating. If you don’t know how to get started try answering these 3 questions to get the wheels turning.

Does it Empty or Fill Your Cup?

Break out the pad and paper and make a list of jobs that you do. Now bucket those separately so you know which you actually enjoy doing veruses tasks that you dread. In the bucket of tasks that you don’t enjoy doing, are there any that you can successfully hand-off, to your satisfaction, that would inturn give more hours back into your day?

The most obvious switch here is if you’re still living in the 2000s with spreadsheets, manual logins, and paper waivers - it’s time to make the switch to Wodify Core. Our software can help you save both time and money with automated billing, digital documents, membership management, and financial reporting. Not only will this give you hours in your day, but it will simultaneously grow your business.

Pro Tip: If you already have Wodify Core, consider the Workout Marketplace add-on. There’s nothing worse than sitting down to program a week’s worth of workouts for your members to realize you’re not only short on time, but those creative juices aren’t flowing like they should. Lessen the stress and gain more time.

Now Who?

Based on which tasks you are ready to offload from your plate is how you are going to land on an solution. If your task list is long, you might want to consider an all-in-one software like Wodify to check off two birds with one stone, so to speak. Do you have a Coach who wouldn’t mind a bump in pay to handle giving the equipment an extra straightening up? Think about the connections you also have with your clientele. There might be a member who own’s a commercial cleaning company and can give you a hefty price discount. Assign the tasks, step aside, and get back to doing the things you really enjoy. 

Pro Tip: Check out our blog with Jason Khalipa about Leadership, Delegation, and Management to learn how to put processes in place to protect both your business and your employees.

Am I Truly Ready?

Change is uncomfortable and handing over tasks that involve the success of your business can be difficult. Before making the jump, be sure that you truly ready. Employees don’t like to be micromanaged, new processes and systems can be difficult to learn, and not everyone will do things exactly like you. If you are ready to work through a season of change then it is time to get hours back into your day.
