Are you a fitness trainer with a considerable social media following? Or are you a yoga pro who posts regularly on Instagram? Perhaps you’re neither but have a killer physique that speaks for itself? 

Well, you can turn your fitness regimen and expertise into a business with a subscription website. All you really need is a membership website builder or WordPress membership plugin if you already own a blog about fitness. 

The subscription model has been a roaring success in the modern circular economy, and you could also get a slice of the pie. If you work out hard at the gym, know what to eat, and feel like sharing it with the world, then why not make it a moneymaker?

Why a Subscription Website?

We all know that social media has become a full-time job for many content creators, including those from the fitness and sports worlds. However, social media is not without its challenges. 

Firstly, there’s no guaranteed income as a lot of it depends on how big your following is and how vast your exposure is. This brings us to the second point, which is that the algorithms on major social media outlets like Facebook and Instagram are incredibly complex and can dip your exposure in seconds. 

You always have to be on top with the kind of content you’re posting and whether it meets their guidelines. 

Lastly, social media requires a lot of effort when building your brand and following. While social media is, of course, highly important for marketing, a subscription model could be the best way to monetize your fitness knowledge. 

You’re guaranteed income from the number of subscribers you have. More importantly, it gives you the freedom to make the content as you please. Plus, it’s going out to people who actually want to hear from you and see you, which is a lot better than just appearing in some random person’s feed who doesn’t really care about fitness, to begin with. 

That all said, social media is very important even for subscription websites or apps, as your subscribers would essentially originate from there. However, that would allow you to use social media as a marketing platform, which is what it’s best for. 

How to Build a Subscription Website or App?

The good thing is that you don’t really have to know how to code anymore to build a website. In fact, you don’t even need a website per se. There are platforms that you can use to create your profile and use as your personal business website to get members. 

One such membership website builder is GamePoint. It’s a popular platform with fitness experts, bodybuilders, nutritionists, celebrity trainers, and sports coaches. 

Signing up is absolutely free on GamePoint, and you can build your own personal fitness subscription website on the platform. That website is also an app, as GamePoint also has a mobile app on Android and iOS. That way, your subscribers can access your content both through a web browser and the GamePoint app. 

It works similar to any subscription service, but with a lot of freedoms, you won’t find anywhere else. When you sign up, you’ll set a monthly or yearly subscription price (monthly is obviously better as a yearly subscription is too long a commitment for some consumers). 

You will get your own page on GamePoint, which is sort of like your own subscription website. There you can post all your content for direct access by your subscribers only. The content depends on your specific niche. 

Most content creators use videos as it’s the most popular content medium these days. 

You can even sell merchandise through GamePoint. The platform allows you to design and sell directly to subscribers while handling all the logistics for you. 

Alternatively, if you’re a fitness blogger, you can turn that into a subscription business as well by simply using a WordPress membership plugin. That will allow you to manage subscribers easily, and control which content is free for all and which is subscriber-only. 

How to Make Money Through Fitness Subscription Business?

You have all the tools available, but it’s going to take more than that to turn a buck. The subscription model is typically better for those fitness trainers or athletes who have some existing following, either in the real world or social media. 

So if you’re starting from ground zero, your first step is to build some audience through social media. It could be anything from Instagram to YouTube. 

Once you have even a few hundred followers, you can create your subscription website using a membership website builder like GamePoint. 

Again, the onus of attracting and locking in subscribers falls on you, which means you should ideally be crazy good at what you do. The content you create should have value and address the things your fans want to know. 

For instance, if you’re a nutritionist who specializes in the vegan diet, you can post detailed meal plans and recipes on the subscription website. You can use pictures of the recipes or a snapshot of calories on social media to attract subscribers. 

You also should be realistic with your pricing and offer discounts from time to time. Your ultimate goal is to retain subscribers, as that would be relatively easier than finding new ones. Again, all of that comes down to the quality of content. 

There’s a lot of competition in the subscription business as well, so you’ll need to stand out from the crowd. 

Final Thoughts

For a fitness trainer or coach, a subscription website can be a fantastic opportunity to get freedom with their content and make money at the same time. However, it’s not so easy and requires time. 

The great thing is that you don’t really have to be tech-savvy to do any of this. You can simply use a membership website builder like GamePoint to create your subscription business. However, make sure your social media game is also strong, as that will drive up your subscriber numbers.
