Justin Tamsett

Justin Tamsett is the Managing Director of Active Management. He has managed and owned fitness clubs since 1990, and now travels the globe speaking on topics from business skills to work-life balance. During this show, we visit Russia, London, New Zealand and Australia. We chat about some outstanding club branding, fit outs and marketing, plus JT explores the consumer trend of Status Deniers Vs Brand Fanatics.

Also in this weeks show we chat to Sharon Tousely from Podcast Prowess who gives us tips on intros and outros plus how to create calls to action for our podcast.

Top Tips From The Show

  • 90% of clubs only sell memberships – we have to differentiate our offering!
  • As humans are programmed to pay attention to the unusual – why not be unusual and stand out from the crowd!
  • Brand Fanatics have guilt free consumption of a product
  • Status Deniers will only engage with you if you serve what their values are
  • We can reward status around attendance, referrals and tenure of membership

Inspirational Quotes From The Experts

“The common element between Brand Fanatics and Status Deniers is that they are both willing to make public statements about their brand” Justin Tamsett

“In business we have to decide, who are we going to go after? Are we going to celebrate and cater for our brand fanatics or are we going after our status deniers?” Justin Tamsett
