Fitness & Recreation


The fitness industry is booming. Whether you’re a personal trainer, own a yoga studio, pilates studio, fitness centre or health club, you’ll be familiar with early mornings, late nights and long days. If you aspire to spend more time working on your business, rather than in your business, then you’ve come to the right place. At Growth IQ, we are qualified and experienced accountants for gyms, pilates studios, fitness centres and more.


Do you want to start a gym or your own fitness studio?

There is no industry quite like the health and fitness industry. Even if you have worked in the trenches for years, 4:30am starts and all, opening your own studio creates a whole new set of hurdles.

You might have expert industry knowledge and an innovative program and vision, but do you have the most effective business framework to apply and execute? How do you afford equipment and a site, secure clientele, maintain cashflow, and pay staff? Creating a gym business plan is imperative.

Take Back Your Time

Run a gym or pilates studio? Trips to the accountant probably isn’t how you envisioned spending your time as a small business owner. But why pay a bookkeeper to ‘do your numbers’, or an accountant at tax time when you could utilise a 24/7 service to guide you towards revenue growth and business innovation? Growth IQ work with you as your partners to get you to where you want to be. Whether it’s hands off and behind the scenes, or hands on as the star attraction.


Our Clients

Don’t just take our word for it, check out what our clients have to say!

I signed on as a client of Growth IQ as I could immediately see the value they were going to add to my business, Move Pilates Studio, in the long term. The team at Growth IQ has been pivotal in gaining some structure for my business.

Through setting up an annual goal and breaking into monthly KPIs, I feel in control and excited with my studio’s future direction. Since handing over the accounting and bookkeeping, I have been freed up to physically work on my business, instead of always working in it I would highly recommend Growth IQ to any small business owner wanting to build sustainable business roots.

What our clients say

Jacqueline Alanne, Founder Finn Boutique, Client of Growth IQ

When I purchased a small Ecommerce business, Finn Boutique, I was unsure how to manage my new expenses and overheads and the best way to combine their management with my existing business, if at all. Not only did Josh explain to me in detail the best options, Growth IQ organised everything for me and reduced my time spent on financial admin to zero.

He created a business structure that integrates my varied income streams fluidly. I now have clear KPI’s for my Ecommerce platform and my copywriting that complement each other, and we meet monthly to discuss online strategy and conversion. Whenever I’m in doubt about what I’m doing, Josh’s enthusiasm and actionable advice puts me back on the right track!
