Almost exactly 1 year ago, in March of 2020, COVID changed the world overnight. It forced the majority of creators and business owners in our industry to move online, with rapid speed accelerating us down a path, we believe, the fitness industry was already on.

Coaches simply observing and copying experts (or often times influencers posing as experts) and proclaiming themselves to be experts as well without really understanding the benefits and contraindications of what they were passing on.

 

If you want to be truly successful in this industry and change people’s lives, it’s essential that you invest in yourself and your business. That means educating yourself. Not just in terms of fitness certifications, but in business practices so that you are truly showing up and serving your ideal client in the best possible way. It’s also vitally important to take the time to really deeply understand the people that you’re serving.
