Client success story
Keep It Movin’ Fitness
Impact-Driven Business Coaching
When Dante Puchala, owner of Keep It Movin Fitness, reached out for impact-driven business coaching in November 2022, it was a pleasant surprise. Dante had seen a proposal for small business coaching a few months prior and had decided that it was time to invest in himself and his business.
Dante’s coaching package included support to:
- Develop a website
- Listing on Google & Yelp
- Improve content creation to attract aligned clients.
Every client is taken through a discovery phase that includes an initial call to assess interest and a 90-minute intake call. If the client is located in Montgomery County, Maryland or the greater District/Maryland/Virginia (DMV) area, the meeting can be up to 120 minutes in person.
During the discovery phase, it became clear Dante needed to work on a few basics to reach the goal:
- Create a schedule with time blocks that optimize profit and are sustainable
- Develop packages of services ready for purchase
- Offer automated payment options
The Impact-Driven Business Coaching Process
Impact-driven business coaching is for small business owners, like Dante, who make an impact every day through their work.
The impact-driven business coaching process is designed to co-create solutions with social
entrepreneurs, and every 1:1 coaching client sets the intention for their 6-month journey.
The main benefit of having a business coach is the thought partnership experience.
Throughout the coaching process, social entrepreneurs identify their key barriers and solutions,
and often the solutions are within themselves, and the coaching process unlocks the path forward.
To reach Dante’s Goal, we took a few key steps together.
Dante’s 6-month coaching package resulted in some fantastic outcomes:
Dante’s most important result was retraining his current clients to commit to their fitness while attracting new clients online.

Scheduling & Payment Solutions for a Fitness Studio

There are a lot of scheduling options for small gyms and fitness studios.
After trying several plugins unsuccessfully, Dante decided to pay for a monthly subscription for the GoTeamUp app.
Through GoTeamUp Dante can sell memberships, class packs, and individual sessions all fueled by the same calendar.
This is key so there are no duplicate appointments.
