Whether it’s the start of the New Year and your facility is experiencing a surge of new students or it’s one of the lazy days of summer, cleanliness counts! Consistent and proper cleaning of your flooring, wall pads and other training equipment not only helps protect the health of you and your students, it also extends the life and the look of your equipment and facility and, possibly even more important, it can be the difference between a new student becoming a regular or becoming a memory.

Known across the country as a “yoga instigator & community connector,” I’ve spent a decade getting involved in every nook and cranny of the yoga industry I’ve been able to find. From managing studios and programming for CorePower Yoga and Life Time Fitness and presenting at national conferences, to co-owning a studio with my wife and traveling as a program consultant, I noticed pretty quickly that no matter where in the world you are, the New Year brings a surge of new students. I’ve also noticed a lot of studios leaving the opportunity to be of greater service and capture greater revenue to chance each and every January. Let’s fix that!
This week we find ourselves saying the same thing as many of you: “how did 2017 go by so fast?” 2017 was a great year for Zebra and we, along with our customers and partners, accomplished some great things.
As we continue into the holiday season, it’s important to remember that we should not only love each other and be grateful for all that we have, BUT we also need to love and be grateful for ourselves. This does not mean buying for ourselves or being selfish, on the contrary it means being true to ourselves.
They’re almost here! Yes, them — the New Year’s resolutioners! That portion of your community whose attention you’ve been trying to get all year, they’re about to show up. Are you ready?
Here’s some detail to help you craft an action plan for success in 2018!
While the holidays are a rush for just about all of us, those who own and operate yoga and fitness studios know that January and February can be just as bus, if not busier! With so many New Year’s resolutions being made, people flock to yoga and fitness studios across the globe.

There is a lot happening in the world of software as we head into 2018, and the team at Zebra asked that I take some time to elaborate on what makes Tula Software unique, underscore a few of the primary reasons why Zebra and Tula have chosen to partner with each other, and outline how our software can be leveraged to help independent studios in the world of martial arts succeed.
Hailing all the way from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, Caio Terra is a leading BJJ rooster weight. He is also the owner and head instructor of the Caio Terra Academy. We recently partnered with the Caio Terra Academy in San Jose, California, outfitting the facility with our martial arts mats and custom-printed wall mats.
Zebra owner and CEO, Chuck Blanski sat down with Caio at his academy to talk about how he got into Jiu Jitsu, his facility and what his plans are for the future.
