Here’s a collection of WordPress Themes (templates) I’ve put together for my friends at Learn Parkour SoCal. They have yet to decide on a design, but these themes would be great for any gym or fitness club businesses, small or large.
Key points I discussed when advising my friends about their WordPress website is:
- The website should emphasize your product, which would be workout classes, memberships, and events for gyms, fitness centers, karate dojos, or parkour classes. Use eye-catching images related to your business.
- So, look for WordPress Themes designed for businesses, which usually help you feature products & services. (and it doesn’t matter if the products and service are classes or app designs. The themes I advise clients to use are all the same!)
- Keep the homepage simple. Make the homepage like a brochure (which is how most business WordPress Templates are designed). Visitors to the homepage should see your logo, important website areas in the menu, a header image, and a sentence to grab your visitor’s attention about what you are selling. Highlight only the main product categories. For example, for Learn Parkour SoCal it may be: general classes, personal training, and outdoor events.
- Have a blog. As we’ve said over and over, the blog is your top advertising and PR weapon…and it’s free! As big as social media is, your blog is how you get in Google. And.. as of… well always, Google (and other search engines) are much much much bigger than social media. So blog often, blog with passion about your business niche and anything related to it.
- Design with clean lines, bold basic colors.
- Social media integration (with WordPress plugins)
- Events Calendar
- Payment system (to sign up for classes and events)
