BOOM! Athletics

💥 Refocusing the brand from online readers to local members.

Boom! Athletics is a gym in Essex County, Massachusetts that provides personal and group training for people of all ages and fitness stages.

The mission? Redefine the Boom! Athletics brand, pivoting away from the information-heavy structure and shifting focus to the gym and it’s classes, coaches, and results.

Our approach needed to be comprehensive and cohesive. We reorganized the flow of information to guide to user toward signing up, while still promoting Boom! Athletics vast library of resources and maintaining its status as a leading resource in the online fitness space.

🧭 New Strategy

This was not a face lift, this was open heart surgery on the Boom! Athletics brand. I met with Sean, owner and operator of Boom! Athletics for a 2 hour StoryBrand strategy session where we defined goals of his customers and his business.

I’m a big fan of the StoryBrand methodology, and that is what we used here to discovered insights which we used to build out the website and tell the BOOM! Athletics story.

We shifted away from Boom! Athletics as the hero who saves the day, and instead focused on the customer as the hero who is on a journey.

We position Boom! Athletics as the thoughtful guide who has has the knowledge, empathy, and experience to help the customer avoid common pitfalls, a a plan that can help them complete their journey.
