Becoming A Small Giant- McCloy Addresses National Summit

SEATTLE, Wash.- For one hour Madison’s Andy McCloy set the record straight on how small gyms can make a big impact on the local community, no matter where that community resides. The owner/operator of Body Creations Sports Performance and Fitness (BCI) in Madison was one of three special guest speakers on Oct. third who spoke at length on different subjects at the 2020 Vigor Ground Fitness and Business Summit held at the company’s building in Seattle, Wash.

McCloy’s one hour presentation was held virtually and was titled “Small Gyms Make Big Impact on Community- Becoming A Small Giant.” He should know that subject as well as anyone as he opened his original business in Huntsville in 2001, moved to Madison in 2005 and has been at his current location at 9582 Madison Blvd. for eight years. With over 200 clients on his current workout agenda, the 41-year old McCloy knows how to professionally train any elite athlete or anyone who wants to be in better health.

“My presentation hit on different subjects about operating a gym, but mostly covered this idea proposed on a model that gyms not need to be big, but good at what you do,” said McCloy, who has been a highly petitioned guest speaker and seminar host at numerous health and fitness symposiums around the world.

McCloy led off his presentation to those joining in virtually from all over the world with his seven key reasons on how gyms can survive the COVID-19 pandemic. He said all will lead to success during such difficult times across the globe.

The listed seven headlines included:

  • Location
  • Team Of Teams
  • Know Your Numbers
  • Small Giant
  • Small Group Model
  • No Partners
  • Clean and Clutter Free

“As for the clean portion of my presentation, the COVID-19 situation has made people take note of your locale as clean is the future of the business and focus on the members of your gym,” said McCloy. “In what’s going on now we must adapt and utilize those implements for the necessary steps to make valuable business practices, especially with off-site situations with virtual items.”

“We have benefited from our location; we have a highly trained team; know your business data and run a lean machine; best to have little or no debt; have small group workouts 12 or smaller; find a business partner(s) that makes sense and have a complimentary skill set; be clean and without clutter,” added McCloy on his seven key notations.

The Summit was scheduled to be a powerful three-day event for coaches and fitness professionals who want to achieve financial freedom through fitness. Speakers tackled an array of subjects within the scope of the Summit that allowed those tuning in to get the knowledge, insights and crystal-clear action steps needed to have a fitness business be successful. For McCloy, he made the trip to Seattle to accommodate the Summit’s request and stayed at the Hyatt Regency located on Lake Washington. While there he spent time with other industry friends and besides sharing fellowship, also shared their expertise in the world of health and fitness.
