We all know that, as group fitness instructors, we’re not just in the studio to get folks moving. Nope, our to-do list stretches way past that!

Scheduling those fun-filled classes, keeping tabs on who’s showing up, and making sure our equipment is safe and ready to go – these are all part and parcel of our day-to-day lives. And let’s not forget about managing bookings, cancellations, and even playing the role of a cashier.

And to top it off, we throw on the marketing hat to keep our social media buzzing and newsletters rolling out. Juggling all these roles while keeping our main gig—inspiring and leading our classes—can be quite the balancing act. But hey, that’s what makes our job as group fitness instructors so diverse and exciting!

To help with marketing your classes, we’ve rounded up three great resources available to you in our free support library:

Discover the secrets of Facebook marketing with Jessica Holguin

If you haven’t heard of Jessica Holguin, get on Facebook immediately and join her group, The Stage.

Jessica is a Zumba instructor turned Facebook guru who has one clear objective: helping group fitness instructors pack out their classes using Facebook. Her tried and tested methods have been used by instructors across the globe to boost their numbers and keep clients coming back for more!

  • Discover what to post, where to post, and how often to post to maximise your fitness marketing efforts.
