35+ Best WordPress Themes for Gyms, Personal Trainers, Yoga Teachers and Pilates Instructors (2018)
- 1 Comment
When it comes to choosing a WordPress theme to attract new clients to a gym or fitness center — or the more personal services of a personal trainer, a yoga teacher or a pilates instructor — making a good first impression is extremely important.
The right website has to capture the visitor’s imagination by whatever means possible — and the likes of videos, parallax-scrolling backgrounds, full-width slideshows and full-screen images can all help enormously.
Other features to look for include custom post types (for creating instructor/trainer profiles), built-in client testimonials, event calendars, and the capacity for selling your own related products and accessories further down the line.
Below, we’ve put together a list of more than 35 of the best fitness-oriented WordPress themes on the market — all of which are top sellers within the fitness-theme niche, highly rated by their users, come from reputable WordPress theme shops, have beautifully made online demos, and can each be used to create stunning websites.
