Check out our new series: Business Matters with Mike


Hey JGTV Friends!

Happy Spring!  I want to tell you about our new series: Business Matters with Mike.  Every Thursday for the next couple of months, my partner Mike is doing a live streaming, interactive workshop about the business of Pilates and fitness.  Mike Beauchamp is co-owner of John Garey Fitness & Pilates and John Garey TV.  He is our business expert. Mike holds an MBA and worked in the corporate world for 15 years before moving into the roll of entrepreneur.  Each week, Mike will cover different business topics that are important for Studio Owners, Managers, and Instructors as well.  If you’ve got a topic or question for Mike about the business of Pilates and fitness, just put it in the comments section and we’ll be sure to get to it on an upcoming show.

The series officially launched yesterday and our first episode was titled, “What Gets Measured, Gets Done – Part 1.”  We hope you’ll join us live for this series every Thursday at 1PM PST on our Live Page as well as on our YouTube Page, but if you’re not able to make it, you can watch the episodes right here on my blog.  I post a new blog each week catching you up on all of the latest on John Garey TV.

I’ll be back with my series, Q&A with John, right after this series ends.

In the mean, please enjoy a quick note from Mike and episode one of Business Matters with Mike.

Hey everyone!
Over the next several Thursdays, I will be live at 1pm Pacific time to discuss a variety of business topics that are directly related to the fitness and pilates business.  
On average, the people who are attracted to open businesses and work in our field have a primary goal of helping other people.  Yet, we all still have to figure out how to make a living as well.  My primary focus will be to address topics that will help owners and managers achieve greater success, but some of these topics will also be applicable to individual trainers and how you manage and grow your own businesses.  Just like your primary goal is to help your clients succeed in their fitness and wellness goals, mine is to help YOU succeed, so that you can continue to do the great work that you do.   Each week, in addition to the main topic, I’ll also answer any questions that come in via the comments, John Garey TV Facebook page, or email.  That may depend upon how long our topic is and some questions may be meaty enough to warrant a short discussion, but then they could become their own topic one of these weeks.  Please leave questions in the comments section or email us at

This Week’s Topic:

What Gets Measured Gets Done – Part 1: Revenue & Attendance KPIs:

  • What’s your relationship with numbers?
    • I know a lot of people who cringe at the thought of “math”.  Somehow the complex equations that we learned in school scared many of us from embracing numbers – even when just a few simple numbers are critical to our business success!
    • Others don’t mind “numbers”, but don’t really enjoy the “business” side of running a fitness/pilates/wellness business.  
    • If you’re not a fan of numbers, I’m here to help.  Knowledge is power and knowledge of your numbers will power your business success.

So check out my first episode below and thanks for joining me.

Our most recent video releases:

Reformer Monday:  Beginner Reformer Workout 2

Mat Wednesday: Intermediate Mat Workout 4-5-17

And finally, our fitness workout for this week will be released this weekend.  I’m doing a program (I hope you’ll join me) called Summer Body Project.  I’ll be posting a video with all of the exercises for the program and a pdf with all of the notes and workouts and charts you need to join in this 8 week program.  I’m almost done, so watch for it this weekend.  And for those of you who already sent me an email to join, you’ll be hearing from me this weekend as well.  If you haven’t already sent an me an email letting me know you’d like to join in, send one to  with “Summer Body Project” in the subject and I’ll send you more detailed information as well.

Thanks for tuning in everyone!

    This is awesome Mike! I wish the business “theme” would continue after the next few weeks- what valuable information!

    Thanks Mike, looking forward to more sessions with you. There is such a need for more info on the business side of things no matter which modality your business is geared to.

      Hi Gabrielle! Thank you so much! Here is the link to our 8 week program Summer Body Project – I’ll send you an e-mail as well with more details. WELCOME!

      I’ll also pass along your questions to Mike.

      And – I’m not concerned about placing, but I do want to get a bit leaner than I was for the last show. The show is just the goal – the process is the part that interests me most.
