Londeka Khumalo is a former personal trainer turned BODYTEC Hillcrest studio owner. In just under two years, Londeka’s experienced incredible growth and fulfillment as part of the BODYTEC franchise group. This is what she has to say about her experience as part of the BODYTEC Franchise group;
“To be honest, at first, I was nervous to transition into the role of a studio owner. However, I’ve found that the step up from being a personal trainer to a BODYTEC studio owner has been incredibly rewarding, both personally and professionally. I have a degree in Sports Science with a major in Biokinetics from the University of KwaZulu-Natal. Because of my extensive knowledge of the fitness industry, I jumped at the chance to invest in the business. In almost 2 years, I have experienced insatiable growth and fulfilment.
But what made this transition so smooth and successful?
One word: SUPPORT! The support from the BODYTEC head office team has been exceptional. They offer comprehensive marketing materials, strategies, and guidance, which have been instrumental in promoting my studio effectively. Additionally, the operational support, including training programs and logistical assistance, ensures smooth day-to-day operations, creating a strong foundation for the success of my studio.
One of the most incredible aspects of being a BODYTEC studio owner is the sense of community and networking opportunities. Constant gatherings of studio owners, whether via Zoom Meetings or face-to-face regional meetings twice a year, have allowed me to not feel alone on this journey. Interacting with other studio owners within the franchise group has provided a valuable support system, fostering collaboration, shared insights, and the exchange of various strategic methods. It truly feels like we are all in this together.
Of course, balancing running a studio with training members is a dynamic challenge. There are many aspects to consider, and time management is key. Efficient scheduling, delegating tasks by priority, and maintaining a strong leadership mentality have been crucial in managing both aspects effectively. But the rewards make it all worth it.
As a fitness enthusiast, my greatest passion lies in helping others improve their well-being. And as a BODYTEC studio owner, I have countless opportunities to make a positive impact on people’s lives. Witnessing members achieve their fitness goals and experience the positive impact it has on their overall well-being is incredibly rewarding and serves as a constant motivation for me.
