We Deliver Great Performances
For Health & Fitness Businesses
Health & fitness business coaching and support services.
There are many things that separate our health industry clients from other industries, but the biggest is the actual shape most health businesses take. How they build revenue, capture value, and plan for successions and exits has more in common with legal firms and accountants than with retail, trades, or business to business organizations.
With our experience at growing health, wellness, and fitness practices, clinics, and facilities we know what those unique opportunities are and how to get you there.
We grow health industry businesses in part like we grow any other business, through the Great Performances 3-Cycle approach. But we also focus on the differences.
Administrative systems. Customer follow-up is to some degree optional in other industries. In healthcare and fitness, customer follow-up is mandatory. Patient and client communication and record keeping, and the administrative staff that supports those functions, are central to a health and wellness practice. We help you integrate your systems and your team through recruiting and training strategies to ensure your patients and clients are cared for profitably.
Expansion. Expanding a health practice is not like opening another fast food franchise. Operating costs, leases, specialized administrative and technical support, record keeping and billing cycles all require consideration when scaling out your practice. We can ensure your professionalism and your investments are protected as your grow.
Growing market share. Especially if you want to move on from personal practice, your health and wellness practice must grow market share like any other business. Yet it must do so without compromising its professionalism or level of service. We have supported naturopaths, chiropractors, massage therapists, physiotherapists, medical device and technical businesses (dental, vision, and hearing), blended businesses like pharmacies (retail + medical), independent fitness trainers, yoga practices, and full fitness facilities. Great Performances Group has the experience to grow your market share without compromising your brand or quality of care.
Clemens, you have enhanced our view on how a successful, future-visioned business operates and functions. Our educational background is specialized in health, not in running businesses. With your advisement, Coastal Roots Health quickly went from a start-up multidisciplinary health clinic to two integrative health clinics that are designed for future growth. We cannot thank you enough for your advisement, attention to detail and big picture developmental coaching.
– Dr. Jennifer Gratton and Dr. Jeffrey Gratton of Coastal Roots Health Clinics
Doug was a joy to work with, as I pressed the reset button on our business after our main product’s market turned commodity. Though we design custom embedded systems and are challenged to explain what we do (other than “we specialize in the weird”) Doug came up to speed on our markets and talents and capabilities very quickly. He provided valuable guidance both on the process of evaluating business/product ideas (from a selection of over a dozen) to specific recommendations on some of the details of implementing the “go forward plan”. He is extremely bright, yet easy to work with, and communications were crystal clear at all times. We will continue to employ the benefits of his grey-matter in the future.
Doug’s coaching and mentoring were of great value to my company as we entered and proceeded through an international business competition. With Doug’s help, our company placed in the top ten. Doug’s help was especially important in the final round when we made our pitch to an elite group of investors.
Thanks to Doug’s experience, he had the ability to intuitively understand and analyze our strengths and weaknesses and quickly provide a clear, effective plan of action for us.
I began working with Doug in 2016, following a difficult year where we faced many of the regular challenges new start-ups meet. Doug rapidly helped me take a step back from my business and implement simple yet highly valuable tools to clarify our vision, focus and address issues at a steady pace, quarter after quarter. I would recommend other small business owners to work with Doug and implement the EOS tools.
