Is location everything when opening a gym? In this 20 min podcast I am going to go over how I chose my location, what to look out for, and how to allow clients to dictate growth and how to do it without going in over your head!

We live in a "more" world. We want more money, more strength, more free time, more, more, more. We are so inlove with this idea that many times we miss the value in the things we currently have.

Sometimes we have a tendency to get in a comfort zone and although we feel as though we are getting things done, we aren't getting them done to the best of our ability. Get outside of the comfort zone, change your environment to one that is motivating, challenging and uplifting and you will go beyond your abilities!
