Business Planning, Accounting and Finance for Fitness Entrepreneurs

This learning path is comprised of two courses and will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the business planning process, along with an overview of the financial operations of a fitness business. 

Business planning is the process that sets forth the annual performance objectives and accompanying strategies for achieving those objectives. An extension of the business planning process is budgeting and forecasting which represent the process of creating a financial roadmap for the business.   

Accounting and finance are the languages of business. While fitness professionals don’t need to be certified public accountants, or have a degree in economics or finance; it is important to understand the basic underpinnings of accounting and finance. 

These two courses are:

  • Understanding KPI's, Accounting, and Finance to Start or Grow Your Business
  • The Business Planning and Budgeting Process
