The COVID-19 pandemic: it’s the phrase heard around the world. There’s no doubt that we are living through a historic event—one that will be taught in history class for years to come. While that may seem exciting, it has actually been a mentally, emotionally and physically exhausting time for most people. As a society, we are feeling burnt out and run-down from everything COVID-19.
But, what if we told you that you could actually change lives and your community post-pandemic? It’s true. Here’s how.
Tap Into Your Inner Entrepreneurial Spirit & Philanthropic Heart
If you are geared towards a path of entrepreneurship, you may find yourself asking how you can be both an entrepreneur and a philanthropist. Simply put: giving back to the community can look different for different people, and it’s not black and white. Sometimes, when the right opportunity presents itself, you have the unique ability to marry your love for giving back to others and changing lives, as well as your drive for business.
Doing your due diligence is important when it comes to merging your love for business and community. You will want to ensure that the company you are investing in or working with has the community's best interest at heart, and they truly practice what they preach.
At F45 Training, we stand by both our franchise owners and our members to ensure that there is a mutual respect and benefit from both sides of the business. We want to ensure that our franchise owners feel as though they are supported from the business side of things, while the members feel that they are getting the best workouts possible. It is through that mutual respect that we change the lives of our members, while giving our franchise owners the opportunity to build their fitness brand and break into the fitness industry.
Ask Yourself: How Am I Giving Back Post-COVID-19?
If you are looking for a way to give back to your community on the other side of this global pandemic, understand this: there’s never been a better time to invest in health and wellness. As we start to see the light at the end of the tunnel with COVID-19, we predict that there will be a huge surge in people taking their health and wellness more seriously, as we have already seen during the pandemic. People are scared; they don’t want to have compromised immune systems that will leave them vulnerable to contracting a life-threatening disease and increase their chances of succumbing to a potentially deadly virus.
When weighing your options of where to go after COVID-19, it is important to put yourself in the shoes of the people in your community. What will they need when all of this is over? What will they be craving?
The truth is, life on the other side of this pandemic will look a little different. For a while, we may have to wear masks at grocery stores or be careful that we don’t get too close to people at the pharmacy. However, we know one thing for certain: health matters now more than ever. Our global community needs a place where they can go to focus on their health and well-being. They will need a support system of people who can help them make healthier choices in their training routine, nutrition patterns and general outlook on life.
F45 Training prides itself on cultivating and maintaining an environment where people can unplug for 45 minutes of the day and focus on themselves, forgetting the outside world for just a moment. After COVID-19, communities need that place now more than ever. People long for a place where they can surrender to the current times and just focus on improving their health and well-being. F45 Training can—and should—be that place for your community.
Not to mention, members of your community could potentially experience life-changing benefits of regular exercise, a healthy diet and a more productive routine, including:
- - Reduced stress
- - Reduced anxiety
- - Improved mood
- - Healthier weight / weight management
- - Improved sleep
- - Boosted immune system
All of these things are especially important as we continue on the path of fighting COVID-19 and recovering as a society. We want to be healthier, and to stay healthy, F45 can help.
As an F45 franchise owner, you could be responsible for providing your community with a place they can go to get an intense, 45-minute, heart-pumping workout that will be sure to keep them wanting more. Your business will be designed to be the place where individuals can safely gather (abiding by all social distancing laws and regulations) to improve their health and well-being.
Beyond that, F45 Training is a community itself. We provide a familial atmosphere where your members can simply be themselves and forget about the troubles of the world for a little fraction of their day. COVID-19 won’t necessarily be nonexistent when they step foot in your F45 studio, but it will be in the background for 45 minutes. Members will be greeted with positivity and smiles, while surrounded by like-minded people looking to make the healthiest choices possible. The goal of F45 Training is, of course, to deliver what we believe to be one of the world’s greatest workouts. However, we also strive to provide a place for the community to turn to in the hardest of times.
Give back through the gift of HIIT classes that will challenge, shape and encourage members of your community. Your F45 studio awaits, and trust us when we say that your community will thank you.
