A good fitness logo can be hard to achieve. Lets face it, there’s a lot of competition around in the fitness industry and it can be easy to get lost in a sea full of fitness logos. Inspiration for fitness logos are easy to find, but there’s a lot of poor-quality fitness related logos out there. So, lets dive straight in and find out what makes a good fitness logo.

 

Target a specific audience

So, your fitness business needs a logo, but what should it be? How much does a logo design cost? Knowing who you want to target with your fitness brand makes all the difference. It’s extremely common for companies to want to target a large audience to their facility, males and females of all ages is extremely common. However, if we narrow down who your business wants to target more specifically, creating a logo for it can be far more effective.

We have to consider the area in which your facility is located, and the cost of visiting your fitness facility or service. Is it a cheap gym that requires a logo? Is it small group personal training that you’re trying to attract? These are good questions to ask yourself which will aid the logo design of your business. Does the studio mainly attract women, or is it that really grungy, male-dominated, strength gym that you’re operating?

We can quickly discover who the target audience is, with a bit of thought. And, then, what the age group of the fitness business is, too. All of these elements equate to what the logo design for your fitness business should equate to.

 

Small fitness studio logo design

A fitness studio that’s small, intimate and personable should have a logo design that represents those features. If the class sizes are small, then creating a logo to represent a fitness facility that is close, warm and friendly should be represented in the logo design.

A consideration should also be the location of the small fitness studio, whether it’s in trendy South Yarra or Prahran, or in the outer suburbs of Melbourne, for example, would make a big difference to the target demographic of the studio, and potential the cost of membership / price per session.

 

Franchise fitness logo design

A logo for a gym franchise is a little bit different to a small fitness studio. A consideration comes more about location and cost of use. This should be represented in the logo design for a franchise fitness business. Can the member use a key fob and go to multiple fitness facilities, like Fitness First, Anytime Fitness, and so on? Are the studios located in inner Melbourne, or are they scattered throughout Australia?

 

Gym logo design

An independent gym logo blends the above two features together. It might be the fact that the gym is large (or small), cheap (or expensive) and location/s are important to consider too. Again, to atrget the right audience with your gym logo design is critical to its success. It may also be an online fitness store logo design that you’re after, similar to World Fitness Australia. The same rules tend to apply for these, too!

 

Personal trainer logo design

When I consider personal trainer logo designs, I think the personality of the trainer is a bigger factor. The logo I designed for Apex Training gives a great insight in to my thoughts and process and you can also read about their logo design case study. It might be their specific training style that has a higher consideration, along with location, gender and potential clientele.

 

 

It’s extremely important for a fitness logo to be relevant to the target audience of the gym, facility, clients and demographic of their clients and prospective members. To have the right logo design is one thing, but branding is also extremely important to really capture the audience you want to.
