Meet the Member – Amy & Caitlin – ALT Fitness

‘Meet The Member’ is our blog series where we get to know the members of our business club a little better. In this post, we catch up with Amy & Caitlin – ALT Fitness

Name, business name

Amy & Caitlin (we’re co-owners) of ALT Fitness

Tell us about your businesses, the inspiration behind it and when you launched it?

We were inspired to create a space where people feel truly safe to have a fun fitness journey and to learn some exciting new skills in the process. Since day 1 we’ve been driven to carve out a safe space which was uniquely designed to serve people who don’t feel they fit into traditional gyms.

Best piece of advice you were given at the start of your business journey?

Anything is possible if you make a plan and follow it through

What has been your biggest lesson/ challenge faced so far and how did you overcome it?

We had to close our doors 1 week after opening due to the pandemic so it took a lot of patience in the beginning for us… now we get to live our dream of working full time in our business and we appreciate it SO MUCH because of the challenges we had to overcome to get there

What is your number 1 business tip for success?

People buy people. Put your personality and your values at the heart of your business and no-one can ever replicate that uniqueness.

What are the big business goals for 2024?

We’re aiming to increase our revenue by 25- 50%

How can the GGC Business membership help?

There are so many tools, tutorials and events to choose from. Genuinely more than we could ever fully use

What’s the dream?

We’re living it!

Fave mantra to get you buzzed up for business

Sticking on Shania Twain and dancing round the studio gets us hyped up every time! “Let’s Go Girls!”
