Each and every year, thousands of fitness professionals join the fitness industry. Most of them drop out in less than a year or two—and often just a few months.
They entered in to a profession they thought would be easy. Let's face it though, it's far from easy. Passion, grit and staying ahead of the game is what keeps people fighting through the competitve fitness world but the reality is that most just can't quite cut it.
Anybody can call themselves a trainer. It doesn’t take much to open up a gym or start a bootcamp. What does require a lot of dedication is working your way through all the dozens and dozens of nuances, techniques and business development factors that separate elite coaches from the rest of a really very average crowd.
You though, the person reading this, is the trainer who got into the industry for the right reasons and will truly become great at what you do. You are the person we want to work with.
We want you to come and discover how you can remain at the forefront of the field.
